When did Paint horse descriptions become so technical and why?

Because breeding "overos" can be extremely dangerous if you are unaware of what you are doing. Splash and sabino are no problems but frames carry the lethal white gene which results in foals being born and having a miserable death if not handled by euthanasia immediately. It can be totally avoided by proper knowledge. Being technical prevents this situation entirely and ensure there is no risk of OLWS.

I've heard of lethal white but was not aware it is directly connected to frames. It's interesting and odd at the same time that a coat pattern can be deadly.....

Lethal white isn't merely connected to frame. It is frame. All frame horses only carry one of the frame markers, if a horse carries two of the markers it is homozygous for frame. While homozygous may be something great in tobianos, duns, blacks, etc. In the frame gene a homozygous factor is a guarantee of lethal white. If a foal receives a frame gene from both father and mother it will have lethal white, and die, every single time.

In an Australian book I have, overo is frame, sabino is sabino and splash is splash. If only it were so simple here....

She's a beautiful horse!

I agree with Tobiano and Splash. I don't personally see frame but that doesn't mean its not there. There is a test for frame aka Lethal White Overo or LWO so that helps to take the guess work out of things. If you plan to breed her in the future be sure to test just to be on the safe side.

My guess would be tobiano, splash and sabino

She does not look frame but it can hide so it is always best to test and be sure

Looks like Tovero plus Splash,maybe frame too looking at the shape of her spots but only a test can verify it

Tovero isn't a pattern. Tovero is tobiano + spalsh/frame/etc. (in other words one of the overo type patterns).
