What kind of paint is he?
 
So, I never figured I'd care, but now I'm curious to know what kind of markings he has. I know his COLOR, I simply want to know what his markings are (i.e. tobiano, overo, frame, etc). I feel like it's very safe to say he is NOT a tobiano.

Thanks for the input, everyone. :)

He does actually have tobiano, for sure. You can see the tobiano in the way the white crosses his spine, especially at the hips. Tobiano loves a white butt :-) I would also guess splash, with his bottom heavy blaze. And possibly frame too, with the way the white is trying to spread horizontally on his neck and on his barrel.

Really? I didn't honestly see the tobiano, but then again I don't know a lot of things. xD I did have something about his markings here, but I looked at some pictures and facepalmed.

Also, his other side. :D

Even more convinced of the frame in that picture now. Tobiano is why he has high white on his legs that connects to his body white, while frame is trying to restrict that causing one leg to not connect.

Tobiano on its own is fairly easy to see. However, when you add other white patterns, it can often look like a big, confusing mess of colour mixed with white lol.

Lol, yup! He's even got lines of white under his jaw and cheeks.

I'm not good at picking out frame and splash traits... But I'm pretty pro at tobiano vs. overo vs. tovero. He is DEFINITELY tobiano.

I agree with the others that he's definitely a tobiano
Beautiful horse too ;)

Thanks, guys. :) YAY. Means I have two tobianos. They're my fav. ^^

I see tobiano, frame, and splash too.

Unmistakably tobaino. He has some other overo gene too, causing the sabino looking face markings, since tobaino doesn't normally cause white on the face, but a lot on all four legs.
