Thanks everyone for your input. After your informative posts and a little research, I'm pretty confident that I can call her a tricolor Tovero with a splash pattern.

I wouldn't call her tri-colored. That would be like calling any bay horse (or any color for that matter) a tri-color.

Two colors on her body - dun and white, with black in her tail and her forelock. That is considered tricolor. (and black around her mouth)

No, if you take off the white that is part of her base color. She is not a true tri-color.

Tricoloured (horse) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

*sigh* Every horse that has a speck of what and a base color that has "two" colors (read black points) should be called tricolored.

The points of a horse should not be counted as a color.

tricolored horses are usually calicos or brindles.

I don't use wikipedia links as proof of colors are there is so much misinformation in 99% of them, just like I don't take registries at their word for colors.

ETA a horse that is tricolored that is neither colico nor brindle -


A chimeric tricolored Icelandic -

How much of another color makes it "official"? She has two large black spots on her muzzle besides the mane and forelock. However, we can debate all day as to what makes up a tricolor but, truthfully, it is unimportant. Thank you for your input, though. I grew up "knowing" that a tri consisted of two body colors and a different mane and tail - I think that is really the general consensus, right or wrong.

What makes the difference is if you "erased" the white on the body it the color would be one of a "normal" base coat, I.e. With black points.
