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.

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.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

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

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?

Its a buckskin PAINT. Not pinto. It's a paint.

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.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
