I think shes gorgeous . Although I'm not sure of her colour , palomino overo ? I'm not good at colour guessing.

I've always called them Pali-Paints. One of my favorites. =]

It's not her color that's unique but her pattern - she's obviously splashed white, but there's other genes at play there to make her color on her belly as opposed to her back. I would say possibly frame or even tobiano, as both splashed white and frame tend to be characterized by color on the back. Tobiano is the one pattern that eliminates color from the back, typically.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

Yes, I was referring to the markings. It's the first time I've seen a paint with markings on the belly instead of on the back. Just must be something that doesn't occur often!

I definately see splash and tobiano. Hard to say, with so much white, if there are other pinto patterns at play, but probably are :)

I can't be much help but there was a horse almost exactly like that at the stable I ride at. It seemed like her markings were flipped. Very odd but a beautiful horse!
