I took on this paint after the owner could no longer care for him. He was a stallion and was jumping in to my fields. I now have 3 mares covered by him. I've been a bit confused figuring out what pattern he would fall under. Tobiano, Tovero or Tobiano with some Sabino. His shield and dark head does not connect, he has a large blaze starting from above the eyes to under the chin, The body pretty much white except for flank color and a few ink spots and bear paws. I'm leaning towards Tobiano possibly with Sabino.

Tovero is an outdated and useless term that means Tobiano + some other overo type pattern.

He is carrying tobiano. Would need pictures of his head/clearer pics in general, to really give an opinion on anything else.

Are you gelding him? And are you aborting the mares?

Yes I already gelded him but no I am not aborting the mares. The owner informed me of where he got him from. He has papers and bloodline and apparently the father was breeders trust. I have contacted the farm he the previous owner bought him from in hopes I can at least get his lines and reg. My mares are all AQHA a Bay,Sorrel and Palomino.

Are any of your mares tested for frame and has the stallion/now gelding ever been tested for frame?
    04-02-2012, 03:14 PM
So is he registered now? Or are you hoping to register him? Because if not, it's going to be pretty pricey and a huge hassle since he is older.

According to the previous owner yes he was tested..and none of my mares carry frame...I shouldnt have a problem with lethal white...I asked the previous owner why they never gelded him and they said because they planned to have him cover their mares. According to them though he has never shown or earned.

They tell me he is but don't have any paperwork on him. That's why I am trying to get a hold of the breeding farm. If they are correct and he is reg or can be yes I will reg. Him....but he would have been too old to put in the breeders trust even if I did want to keep him as a stallion. I don't want one on my property.

Were your mares tested? Frame is notorious for hiding. I have an N/O mare that only has a large blaze.
