Ugh. That one has been around for a while, and sadly is out of date. Not only that, there are some fairly extreme inaccuracies, the worst of which is the statement that "homozygous frame overo is though to be lethal". We KNOW it is lethal, and we knew that years ago, and any suggestion that there is any doubt is just plain ignorant and dangerous.

Sorry for the error on it. I'm new to learning the colours and patterns so I thought it was cool. Does anyone have something more accurate?

In terms of an easy to use chart? Not really, I haven't seen one yet that doesn't have at least some errors. You are best off reading up and learning to recognise the colours on actual horses (or pictures of real horses lol) than using one of those charts anyway.

This site is a good place to start:
