Why do you think he's homozygous Overo? He's definitely carrying Frame, which is lethal when homozygous, so he would not be alive if that were the case. He's also carrying Sabino and could possibly be carrying Splash, but doesn't look homozygous for either of those. I can't find pictures of his sire online, but I found his dam & she's 100% solid. Of course that doesn't mean she's not hiding sabino or splash, but only her sire was a paint, her dam was a QH, so she may not have inherited any pinto genes.

Ditto for me

I would also add that he is on the thin side ......I can see his spine in the side pics and can see his hip bones from the rear pic

I just googled her name & found her sale ad. She apparently ended up as a rescue.

Lol, darkpaloma, some people don't read every post and sometimes miss critical info like why a horse is thin and what you've decided to do. You are doing the right thing by him now. That's just how it goes. He's cute, and I'm sure he'll make a good riding horse once you get him back into shape. Good luck!
