What Colour Is He?

Well, I know you have Sabino, Tobiano, Overo and whatnot.
But I want to know exactly what colour Volcan is..

Don't know if you can really tell by them.
But I thought he was a Liver Sabino, then I though maybe he's Dark Bay Sabino?
Only thing is, his dark colour is more like..

It's weird.
He's got Tobiano like markings on his face a neck then further down it's more roan but still coloured.

Im not sure how Vanners patterns are classified but to me he just looks like he has a Vanner coat pattern, and if I classified it with paint patterns I would say Overo only because to me he clearly doesnt look like a tobiano.

Vanners here are just called Cobs or Coloured Cobs.
When people can be bothered they call them Traditional Coloured.

I thought Overo was a base coat with jagged type white bits on it.

In that picture, the second one down on the right, is the same pattern as him.

It's all confusing lol.

Yeah, it is all confusing. The part that I am stuck on is he has undefined lines around his makings like an overo but like the picture you linked that looks like his color pattern. I would say just to avoid confusion just call him a Tovero :) it is a real color pattern defined by the APHA so I would just go with that :) haha

It was almost solid brown then after a few weeks it keeps going whiter lol.

He is a tobiano. Tobiano can roan out as well.

I would agree with tobiano - I was considering tovero, but tovero is a combination of the two (tobiano and overo) and while he shows very distinctive tobiano traits (head and leg markings, white over back) he doesn't show any signs of framing from the frame overo gene (too much white on the belly for that). It's possible a splash overo could be in there, which would make him tovero, but I don't know that you could find that out without extensive pedigree analysis or DNA testing.
