So he's a very minimal tobiano, very nice! My mare is a gulla overo (registered solid, but clearly pinto, like your boy).

It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Haviris- So you would call him minimally marked Tobiano as well? I have been asking this question alot lately. I am new to paints, and duns! He does have that white that comes to the middle of his hocks. I have been told that I could sway it one way or another based on what I wanted. I have always thought he would be considered Minimally marked Tobiano as well. Does that make him registerable for the Pinto and Buckskin registries then? Thanks for your input!

Thank you to everyone else with the nice comments! I will for sure keep picture updates coming.

He is a stunner!!

If you're going for the name from Princess Bride for his barn name it's spelled "Westley"

Sixlets- I did not know that! It never occured to me to check the spelling. I am just thrilled that someone actually GOT it! I was racking my brain for names during foal watch. Happened to be watching Princess Bride, joked about calling it Wesley if it was a colt, with Dun As You Wish....paused the movie for a 9:00 check, and out he came! It just fit him and stuck. Thanks for the info though...not sure if I will change it. Thats a dilema...
