What kind of palomino is this?

Hi! I've been wondering how is this color called! In his certificate there's "overo paint", he has white face and half blue eyes. I think he looks like a palomino, but how do you call the dark spots (dapples?) he has?

If he's clean in that picture that's sooty. He's a sooty palomino.

I would say sooty palomino as well and the dapples and just dapples. Some horses have them, some dont. I know some horses who only get dapples at a certain time of year and depending on what they are being fed. Other horses have them all year round.
