Question What pattern was Dixie?

I know she was an overo but was it Frame, Splash, Sabino or all three? Also was she a medicine hat paint? Unfortunately Dixie was lost to foaling complications. She belonged to my neighbor also and I have permission to post the pics, Dixie was my baby too. Here's a few pics. Sorry for the poor quality of some of the pics.

Definite sabino. Maybe Splash? Probably not frame.

Agreed. Sabino because of the crazy roaning. Splash because of the way her face looks like she dipped it in a bucket of white paint lol. Not frame because of how much leg white she has.

I believe that "medicine hat" just refers to a mostly white horse whose ears still retained colour, so Dixie would not qualify. But I'd say she is definitely Splash (blue eye + large face white extending over the eyes) + Sabino (roaning).

No, no medicine hat. A medicine hat would just have dark coloring on the top of her head/ears. The white would be all over her face, and then travel around her neck and cut the color from her head.

Here's a picture...



See how the color is only on the top of the horse's head. That's a true medicine hat.

Thanks CLaPorte, her former owners who my neighbor bought her from told him that she was a medicine hat, but I can see clearly that she wasn't. I still miss her very much and enjoyed being around her cause she was so sweet and gentle.

Same here, I know a good bit about Paint patterns but sometimes the overo pattern confuses me.

*Blush* I am glad to be able to help. My first tip is that the reason the "overo" pattern confuses you is because the word is stupid It really only means "anything that isn't tobiano", and covers up to 5 different white patterns - you can lump sabino, frame, splash, dominant white and rabicano under that umbrella Once you start thinking of them all separately from each other, you will be able to see them
