Breeding stock.is this it?

I have a registered APHA breeding stock 15 year ancient mare..In my personal thoughts and a lot of others too...this horse should NOT be a breeding stock. She should be registered APHA Overo because she have unconnected white spots going up her legs and her two hind socks budge WAY above the knee (someone told me that horses are registerd Overo paint if their socks dance above the knees).well anways.I dont own a pic to show you because I dont have a style to get a pic of her on my computer (no digital camera or scanner).but here is what her legs look resembling...

( that is not my horse...I found it on the internet).her hind legs look resembling that and then they break past its sell-by date into little spots..can I register her for Overo...or would it not even matter? (people report to me that she's too old to mle for)

whats your thoughts?
Answers: I have to agree - she wont qualify on leg white alone.
As for anyone "too old to scuffle for" - its only a business of going to a show where theres a registration contract out and ask for her to be reinspected.If you are showing her & are happy beside her -then why not?
I registered my 18 y.o thoroughbred mare as a breeding stock brood mare with the PtHA when I bred her to a homozygous Pinto stud.She be never too old to argument for for any reason :)
Good luck
My guess would be Sabino, which is a gene that falls into Overo...

Wikipedia is pretty informative almost all those paint colorings... you might only want to sit down and go through some of that stuff and establish for yourself. There should also be some links on Wikipedia that might have better pictures, etc...

Good luck!
looks to me similar to a minimal white overo. her spots are bigger than 4inches which is what the requirment is to be a actual paint according to apha rule book i have. presently if your mare has no white on the belly purely high socks afterwards yeah it's breeidng stock.
