Bonnie's color pattern
1 Attachment(s)
I've owned Bonnie for about a month now and she's a great trail horse. She stands on the light side of 15h but is built like a tank with the largest head I've ever seen on a horse her size. I've owned several Paints over the years but never paid too much attention to coat pattern until recently. Due to what I've been reading and her blue eye color, I'm thinking that she is a Splash with some characteristics of Frame or Sabino. What do you think? (She is registered with APHA as a Tob/ovr Little Bonnie Blue Paint )

Frame can cause blue eyes as well as splash. She is definitely tobiano to start with. The way her face marking is makes me think splash. I also think she has sabino, which could be the reason her markings are so jagged at the edges, but that could be frame too. I lean towards sabino though.

my guess would be splash even though her markings are jagged she doesn't seem to have that white ticking that you normally see with sabino. and i agree tobiano as well.

Tobiano and splash for sure. Possibly frame and/or sabino.

She's Tovero. Tobianos have faces/heads like a regular non-paint horse.

All so complicated!

Rides - Tovero is a combination of the patterns mentioned. Hence why we were/are stating the underlying patterns. Tovero in and of itself is not an independent coat pattern. I would never rely on a registry to get a coat patter or color correct as they are not up to date with the current color/pattern genetics.

I agree with tobiano + sabino.
