I have seen this one before. It is not too bad, but, as ever, there are elements of it I don't like and that are not technically correct.

Eg. I hate that they have used the terms "tovero" and "overo". Sure the words are commonly used, but they are stupid and shouldn't be.

The part with a medicine hat is just lumped in with Tobiano, but it's fairly certain that tobiano needs another white pattern to put any white on the face, so that is probably inaccurate.

Another thing I think needs to be re-thought is the inclusion of "rat tail" in the appaloosa area. That is a trait of the Appaloosa breed, not a trait associated with Lp (the gene causing the spotting).

Regardless, it is a monumental effort to put such a thing together.

I believe cedarseed is from Lebanon... so I guess we all have different terms? lol
