Exclamation What color horse is this?

I went to the rodeo the other day and saw and amazing horse. She was absolutely beautiful. It didn't occur to me at the time to take a picture, but I'll describe her the best I can. There might not even be a name for it; I've never seen a horse like that before.

She was a palomino/buckskin color, but at the same time, neither one. Her mane and tail were silver, black, and white.

Her tail was similar to this, except with more color

Her mane had the same colors as that horse's tail. They were all mixed together and were gorgeous.

Its a buckskin paint, but because of the hroses markings, the mane and tail are a different colour

Judging from the description, I would say that she was probably a buckskin with prominent guard hairs on her mane and tail. They can cause the mane/tail to have a layered silver coated appearance.

Paint is a breed, not a color. You mean Pinto, I think.

You can't say its a paint unless you know for certain that it is the breed. Paint is a breed, pinto is the type of color.

So the horse in question is most likely a buckskin pinto. The pinto pattern is most likely tobiano to effect the mane like that.

Edited to add - I'm talking about the horse they are asking about - which is not the horse in the photo. We don't know what breed the horse they are asking about is.
