What color is she?

I have been trying for awhile to determine what my husbands QH/Paint mare's color is. Any idea?

Flaxen chestnut overo. I'm not sure what kind of overo, but likely frame and another pattern.

Not overo per se though she could carry an overo white pattern like sabino. Her pattern is minimal or slipped tobiano. I said that on her critique in the critiquing sub forum. She has the high whites and the white streak across her croup. Her color is flaxen chestnut or flaxen sorrel whatever name you like to call a red horse.

Pardon her thinness I bought her thin, she was a rescue and wasn't in a great situation. But she is a nice example of a minimal tobiano pattern.

Chestnut with flaxen and I would say Tobiano not overo, though I agree that she may have splash or sabino to account for the blaze

Do you have any pictures of her other side?

I'd say frame and tobi. High whites, white on topline. Her blaze is top heavy and is trying to go over the eyes. Red dun, not chestnut.
Theres a picture in OPs confo thread of this girl and she has a very obvious dorsal stripe and her legs are pretty dark. (I thought I saw barring on her legs also.)

Yup red dun! I went and looked at her coat more closely typical peachy dun color and found the critique thread definitely dun dorsal and legs. So she is flaxen red dun minimal tobiano!

Here are more pics in the OP's critique thread. She is solid on both sides except she has a white spot on her neck in the same place my minimal tobiano had one and she has a white marking on her bum. Typical tobiano markings

The large amount of white on the face, and the irregular spots up along her back are what make me think there might be frame in there somewhere, but I agree with you on tobiano. Also that "roan" spot in the middle of her barrel, is that a scar or a marking? In terms of chestnut or red dun, in the other picture on the critique thread she looks more red dun. I rode a chestnut that was close to her colour, and had some shading on her legs that actually looked slightly stripy.
