What Paint Pattern?
Quite honestly, I'm no color expert...expecially when it comes to paints. I know Sailor is a bay paint. What I am wondering is: what paint pattern is he? I know there are serveral different paint pattern terms (overo,tobanio,piebald,tovero, etc.) Can someone please tell me what my horse would be and why? It would definetly help me on my color knowledge. Thank ya!:-)
{{Sorry about the big pics! If you need more, just look at Sailor's page. I have tons.}}

Tobiano and maybe frame and sabino. But I maybe be wrong about the frame and sabino.

Could you please explain how you came to that conclusion? I think I understand tobiano for the most part...what about frame? And Sabino?

Tobiano, frame and sabino.

You can tell she carries sabino due to the roaning like jagged edges around the white.

Frame is probably harder to see but the color will literally "frame" white. Like a picture frame. So looking at this guys neck (left side) there is that random white patch surrounded by color. Thats one example. Aslo the facial white, there is the big block of white at the top and then it tapers down into a stripe. Thats also an indication of frame.

Tobiano does not cause facial white. So anytime you see white on a horses face, no matter how little, there is some overo gene at play.

Hurray I was right! I'm getting better at paints even if I second guess myself :-)
