Just tobiano, or something else as well?

The horse in question is my new stallion. I just got him Sunday. I do know he is tobiano (and not homozygous, as his mom is solid). He is a mahogany bay pinto, AMHA registered, about 33" tall. My question is related to two things... he does have a small star (think quarter sized, middle of his forehead, just above his eyes), and a roan spot/patch on one hip. What do you think could be causing the roan spot? I can get more pictures tomorrow. His name is Bells Hollywood Heartbreaker. I tried to make sure all his markings can bee seen in the pictures. There is also a picture of his sire in the album (the sorrel tovero). I didn't have the presence of mind to take pics of his dam when I picked him up. I'm hoping to go back to his breeders, and get pics of her at that time.

Tobiano causes roan patches pretty commonly.

Agreed that its probably just tobiano causing the roaning. He does obviously have at least sabino because of the star, and since hes a mini I most definitely would NOT count out frame.
