Okay, I am confused. I thought that a medicine hat was a paint that just had color on his ears and the top of his head, like a hat, and nowhere else, or very minimally elsewhere. But lately I have been seeing people calling their horse a medicine hat if it has color on its ears and it a lot of color elsewhere, or if it has a bald face. So what exactly is a medicine hat?
I thought this picture is what a medicine hat is suppose to look like (sacred indian -drool-)
