Post What would you call this?

I've always wondered this about Lakota's markings and just wondered what you guys thought it qualifies as. Personally, I say he has a half-blaze and a star. I know a "half-blaze" isn't an actual term, but what would his marking be?

Oh yeah, and if anyone could tell me if he's a tobiano, an overo, or a tovero, I'd appreciate it. I've never been good with that kinda stuff, though I think he's tobiano. Thanks

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Tobiano. Ummm one of my mares has almost the same marking and I call it a snip. Maybe a star, strip and snip?

Agree. I think with APHA they might specify "partial blaze"? Not sure though.

Tiny little star, stripe with a connecting snip is what I'd call it.

It's to thick to be a stripe though. Stripe is defined as a thin line.

I will dig out my mares AQHA papers tomorrow and see what they have it marked down as since it's identical to your guys.
