Just Curious-What Color is He?

I'm no color expert, and I am just wondering what other gene besides Tobiano this guy is. He has a little bit of blue in one eye, a big blaze, and a spot under his chin. Any Suggestions? (PS. Sorry for the bad pic! its the only one i have atm)

Flaxen Chestnut? Or is that just the light in his tail? It would be great if you could get pictures of him without tack and that show all his white markings.

Okay, Ill try to by this weekend!

But I was thinking more on the lines of paint markings...Ive been doing my research and read that tobiano doesnt cause facial markings or blue eyes...

His face makes me think sabino. As well as the right hind...how its tapered up in the front of the leg

Splash because tobiano does not put that much white on the legs and none on the face. Possibly sabino by the rear right leg marking, but I'll wait for better pictures.

I'd definitely say splash, because of the facial markings and the blue eye.

heres another pic. I completely forgot to get pics this weekend. x.x sorry. I scrounged this one up though. Hope this helps a little.

I still say Tobiano and Sabino. He's plain chestnut. Not flaxen or Liver Chestnut, but he's still a beauty. What would also help is pictures of his parents if you have them :)

Aw, well thank you. And I wish I knew what his parents were! He was a rescue, so I don't know a whole lot about him. The only thing I remember is his sister being a bay paint, but I dont think that helps much x)
