What is the difference between overo, piebald, tobinto, skewbald, tovero, etc?

I want to know how to tell these coat patterns apart. I have no clue as to which looks like what.

Tobiano in simple terms means colored. Piebald is black and white whereas skewbald is brown and white. Tovero and overo are just different coat patterns but again they can be any color. Pinto is any colored horse with no pedigree so it will be a crossbreed.

I will add to this that skew bald is white and any other color.
Overos have color over white ( mostly white) and tobianos are white over color. ( mostly color)
Overos are usually blaze faced or bald faced. Tobianos have more face color. tobintos, etc usually carry some characteristics of both.

Piebald and skewbald refer to the color. Piebald is a black and white horse, and skewbald horses are any color but black, and white. Tobiano is a white horse with patches of any color, and overo is a colored horse with patches of white.
