This is the beautiful hope. Im not too good with colours so I figured someone could help :P
She has a patch of colour over her ears and face, and a small patch over her bum/tail.
Splash? Sabino?

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have a big four!!

All of the "major" white patterning genes are present here. Tobiano, sabino, splash and frame. There isn't much indicator of all of them, because there is so much white, but this is pretty typical expression of all four together.

WOW interesting horse there ! And good discovery Chiilaa

Awesome, Chiilaa! No wonder I couldnt pick it. So she would be a chestnut tobiano sabino splash frame? Is that how you would word it? :lol:

I tend towards being a touch verbose, so that is how I would word it should I feel the need to explain exactly what she is. Otherwise, I would say she is a "chestnut and white pinto" and then name the patterns she has if people ask.

That sounds a whole lot easier than my way xD

WOW ... that is neat!

And whatever color she is, I hope she gets a little more weight on her, she is a bit ribby, & it really shows up on a light colored horse.She looks to be a nice mare.
