Pics, what kind of paint??

Alright so I thought I would bring this up. Here are some profile pictures of the little mare. She's always been a different type of coloring than a lot of paints out there and because of that, would you guys be able to name the kind of paint she is?
If you need more pictures, let me know.

Paint is a breed, and a Paint is a Paint.

Pinto is a color, and can be pretty much any breed (except that some breeds don't have white), but there are also different pinto patterns. I'm guessing that's what you're asking.

I can't see most photos at work, so I can't really answer your question. Except that if it's your mini, from what I can remember of seeing her photos the other day, she has at least sabino and tobiano.

Definitely some sabino in there. That's all I've got. I'm bad with colors =}

I am useless as well, especially with her because she has so much going on.

Well I would call her a sorrel tobiano paint mare. Basically its the base color and then if the white crosses over the center of the back like hers does its called tobiano if the white does not cross over its called an overo.

Tobiano & Overo (Frame) aren't the only Pinto patterns - there's also Splash & Sabino.

She's definitely Tobiano, & I'd guess Sabino as well. "Extra" spots of colour inside of the normal Tobiano pattern are also sometimes a sign that the horse is homozygous for Tobiano.

Both her parents are tri-colored paints.

Here is her dad: Rocky Mountain Miniature Horses, Dorper Sheep, and Chihuahuas
Her mom is identical to him except she has a blue eye.

I would love to breed her. It would be absolutely adorable to see a baby miniature horse.

I'm not a color expert by any stretch of the imagination. But this horse isn't a Paint. It's a pinto. Pinto is the color pattern. Paint is a breed. If her parents are not registered Paints then she's not a Paint, she's a Pinto.

I would guess Mom is probably carrying the Splash gene if she has a blue eye. Some say Sabino causes blue eyes as well, but to my knowledge this has never been proven.
