    The registry, however, is still a database with mostly accurate information.

    I'm only emphasizing this part so her bibliography is admissible.
    I can't speak for the OP, but frankly, my equine profs have yet to be strict enough to make sure I provide a credible source such as some kind of journal when describing colors. In fact, most of the color sections we've had involved actual horses in a row and we had to name them. The fact that I could name off all of them without hesitation and with confidence was good enough for them.

    However, that has been my experience because my profs are rather laid back.

    My professor is pretty laid back too.

    Okay, so let's see if I got this. Frame is like white spots On the body surrounded by color, and likes to avoid leg markings and doesn't put white around the eyes, correct?

    Splash looks like a horse dunked its face and legs into buckets of paint. Splash causes blue eyes.

    Sabino gives symmetrical face white, and jagged outlines on markings and those high funky whites, along with patterns that can sometimes almost mimic a rabicano.

    So, if my (solid) gelding has a symmetrical blaze, chin white, and all even socks, he has splash and Sabino, correct?

    My new guy!

    Or are his socks caused by Sabino too since the edges on them aren't completely straight like?

    And Tobiano does not create any Face white, right? I can tell the difference quite clearly in tobianos and (the dreaded word to y'all) overos, it's just getting the names and genes down right!:P

    No tobiano does not cause face white. If there is face white on a tobiano you can be sure there is at least one other white pattern gene present.

    I would say your guy just has splash. While his blaze looks symmetrical, it is falling off to one side from what I can see. That is a very typical splash trait.
