Blue and white?

My mare has Blue and White patches with a few brown spots. Is she classed as a Skewbald/Pinto or is there a specific name for this colour?
Thanks!

Can't give any suggestions on what your horse's color is without pictures.

Without pictures, the first thing that I imagined was a My Little Pony. Ha. Please post some pictures.

Im going to assume blue patches with brown spots would be a blue roan pinto (depending on breed) or possible bay roan. As the others said, pictures are best.

Is this the mare in question?



If so, she's a gray tobiano, who will eventually turn either white or fleabitten (aquiring more very small, dark freckles) in her "blue" patches. And she's also not a Thoroughbred, or at least not a purebred one.

Ha! TB's don't come in spots like that--no tobiano in the breed.

Thanks guys! And yes that is my mare. I know she's not a purebred thoroughbred - only put thoroughbred as there was no option for cross breeds. She is 3/4 thoroughbred and 1/4 welsh cob. Are you certain she will change colour? As I met her 12 year old mum who was still blue and white. Unless you mean she will change in her much later life?
