What color is he?

I've always thought he was an Sorrel Overo, that's what his pervious owners registered him as. But many people have told me that he's actually a tovero. You can't notice it in pictures, but he's actually roaning a little bit. Makes me wonder if he will roan more as he ages. (He's 8 right now)

No he is not a tovero, tovero is tobiano plus any of the overo patterns, he definitely is not tobiano. I'm sure plenty of people here will tell you what all they think he has, but sorrel overo would also be correct.

Sorrel Overo, looks like he most likely has Sabino as well. (causing the speckly type spots and the roaning). It is possible he might get more roaning but I would not expect it to get super extensive by any means.

He is indeed a Sorrel Overo.

Not Tovero.

He carries the Frame and Sabino patterns. The "roaning" is caused by Sabino.

He is probably frame maybe splash with that bottom heavy face white but I kinda want to say instead of sabino maybe dominant white. He is marked very similarly to my dominant white paints sire was DW himself.
