He would be called a sorrel overo. He definitely has frame and I would guess splash.

I agree with Po. Frame for sure, and probably splash. For those playing at home, I say frame because of the body white, and splash because of the high front white and the blaze 'slipping' off the face to one side.

He's a Frame Overo (also known as just "Frame," or just "Overo")
That's the jagged white spots.

I also go with the others on the splash white. The white on the face, the high white on his one leg and the white on his stomach that slips up, are all characteristics of splash white.

As for color he can't be a Dun unless you know that's in his genes. The "Dorsal stripe" could be countershading which a lot of horses have without having the dun gene.
I also believe he's a Sorrel paint.
People's opinions differ on the difference between sorrel and chestnut. Some think they are the same, others call one for Western horses and the other for English. Personally I believe if the mane and tail match the body color of the horse it's a Sorrel. If it's lighter it's a Chestnut.

Hope I could help!

Sorrel and chestnut ARE the same colour, they are just different shades being called different names based on area and disciplines.

A sorrel is typically the lighter, orange shades of the colour, while chestnut is the dark, more brown colour (also referred to as "liver chestnut" if even darker). A sorrel/chestnut with a light, blonde-coloured mane and tail has a gene called flaxen and is just called a flaxen sorrel or flaxen chestnut.

I was always taught different. But like I said there are so many different opinions on how the colors are used etc.

You have yours I have mine.

Be my guest, but if you refer to them the way you are, then it's incorrect.

Chestnut: http://blog.summerhill.co.za/storage...e-chestnut.jpg
Flaxen sorrel/chestnut: http://www.theequinest.com/images/flaxen-horse.jpg

Note: Not my pictures, just found them through my friend Google. Sorry for hijacking your thread.

It's not incorrect or right. It's some's opinion. I don't sit here and say your wrong.

They are esentually the same thing yes. But the way people refer to them varies.

The chestnut and sorrel you have picked are basically the same color.

I've always been told mane and tail are the same as the body it's a Sorrel.

There is more than just 2 versions of chestnut too btw not just chestnut and liver chestnut.

Sorrel and chestnut are the same things, just different cultures and disciplines.

And holy tie down in the pics - is it a chain or wire?
