What coloring is my horse?

What color patterns do you think he has? He is not a paint he is a Saddlebred/Appendix QH Cross.

I see tobiano. Frame. Probably splash.

Cool, thanks, I had figured tobiano but nothing else :p
Also he has a blue spot in one eye if that makes a difference!

Tobiano does not cause facial white. So there is at least one other gene in there.

Blue eyes are caused by either the frame or splash gene.

Chestnut tobiano. The way the white is on the left side of his neck makes me think frame too. Possibly splash with the way his blaze curves off to one side.

I too see tobiano (white crossing the back, white going from shoulder to leg and butt to leg), splash (white "falling" to one side on the face, relatively neat lines to white edges) and frame (white trying to travel horizontally up the neck, white blocked from joining on one leg).

Cool, thanks! What does white blocked from joining on one leg mean?

I think she means that the white stocking on the right hind doesn't connect to the white on the rest of the body.

Brown Tobiano. His legs are white, easiest way to tell the difference between Tobiano and Overo. Overo has colored legs while Tobiano has white.

Frame does not like white legs and will attempt to color them. Splash and sabino, the other genes under the term "overo" are more than happy to put all kinds of white over the legs.

Because someone like Gunner is certainly not a tobiano
