She has put a HUGE amount of weight on in the past month, don't want her to gain too fast as that causes big health problems. Kudos to you for taking on such a project, they're so so hard to put the weight back on. Easier than getting weight off an obese one, but hard work all the same, with how often you have to feed them to make sure they don't get sick!

As for her colour, I call it bay tobiano, with likely frame and possible sabino. That patch on her offside shoulder looks distinctly framey, tobiano does not put white on the face, and that big ermine mark on her nearside fore says white suppression gene to me. Frame likes to suppress leg white. Sabino because of her face marking being almost symmetrical, though even that is a little bit framey with how it's asymmetrical above her eyes and spreads out above them too.

The roaning at the edge of her "frame spot" is probably due to the tobiano. Tobi does that sometimes.

She also has another patch on her neck where her BLM brand is but I don't have a picture of that and the weight is mostly grass feed she got 1/4 a scoop a day for the first 2 weeks then 1/2 a scoop and just got bumped to a single scoop yesterday they are free fed grass and hay they don't seem to have any medical problems other than being starved by there previous owner I have had the vet out 3 times since I got them for worming basic check up and coggins testing and all she says they look great and I also send her weekly pictures for basic visual update ^__^

Good for you taking on this project-she has come a long way already-the beginning picture is very sad. Paint only refers to a registered horse of that breeed-even their "color" is pinto. It can all be quite confusing. Just as Thouroghbred is a breed-all other breeds and species are purebred-if they are. Good luck with her!

You're doing something I doubt I would be able to, so don't worry about comments about this horse needing more feed :) you're doing a great job.

Just a quick tip so you don't have to defend yourself again in future, when you start a thread, it might be helpful to remind everyone that your horses are rescues and post 'before' photos. The HF community is pretty good about it but the horse community can be nasty, so keep up with the documenting everything as proof that your horses are improving in your care :)

So on the paper work what would you describe her markings as? She is a BLM mustang she it titled but I don't have her actual papers I do have a letter from BLM so I can register her but i've never registered a horse before and I don't know how to describe her on the paper work

On paper she would just be a bay tobiano.
