No she doesnt. Medicine hats have only a 'war bonnet' on their face, a 'plate' on their chest, and a 'flank plate" While your mare has color where it needs to be, she also has color where it cannot be for a medicine hat. Your mare is just a sorrel overo.

I would say no because the color isn't restricted to just her ears and poll. It also goes down her throatlatch and down her topline as well.

She is a Sorrel overo, would not classify your horse as a medicine hat.

Pinto marking. Connected with some Native American legends. Also immortalized in a Marguerite Henry book.

It looks more like a tovero, not a top hat.

Bonnie looks like she is a medicine hat (except at close inspection there is a streak of white that breaks up the color between her ears - you just can't see it through the forelock).
