Frame (Overo)

  •  One copy usually produces "jagged" white markings on sides of body and face, "framed" by color on the back, belly and legs.

  • A horse may carry this gene without it causing any white.

  •  The white tends to look "spray painted" on, with jagged edges.

  •  Two copies (HOMOzygous) produces "lethal white", a white foal with an unfinished (no exit), non-motile intestinal tract, and other epithelial cell problems.

  •  When breeding white-spotted horses, or horses that have white spotting (especially frame) in their pedigree, they should always be tested to assure that two LWO carriers are not mated.
