Sorrelhorse, why do you say Tovero?

He would be registered as a tovero (which is tobiano + any other "overo" type pattern). It's a crappy outdated term...

He is tobiano + splash + sabino, with the possibility of frame thrown in.

Tobi and Splash is what I'm seeing. Could have sabino or frame as well.

I noticed someone said they wanted to say frame with his white legs--frame actually wants to keep the legs dark! Other pinto patterns want to make the legs white :)

Thanks guys!!
NdAppy: where does the sabino come into play?

Sabino causes rough, jagged edged markings. Sometimes giving them a 'roaned' appearence. :3

I agree, Tobiano with splash and sabino.

Don't know the pattern but my goodness, he is DARLING!!!! I love his little medicine hat look!!

Tobiano coat pattern. He reminds me of a handsome homozygous tobiano TWH stallion who is UC - Davis tested for the gene. The 'splash' and 'sabino' designations confuse me slightly - I didn't know you could classify coat patterns as more than one type.

Thanks guys :)
Now the only problem is that the registry does not have a check box that says Tovero, or tobiano....

Will have to double check the form, but I'm pretty sure that's what it says!
