Calico Palomino?

Alright, so I'm curious. What causes the Calico Palomino coloring? Is it a chimera or what? I've only really seen 2 horses have it. My filly, Tansy, and this colt named Chaos. Do you guys have any other pics of it?
Chaos:


These pics of Tansy are the very first shots I took of her before she was in my possession this winter. Keep that in mind.

I don't really have any good shots that show off her odd spots:






The spots are more prominant in the winter, though you can see them pretty well in her spring coat that's why I am using the shots above.

As far as we know, calico isn't caused by chimera. It only occurs in horses with a cream gene, and some patches of the horse don't go cream. Everyone tends to agree that there is something going on that switches off the cream gene in certain places, and that is how you get a calico.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

tri color would be white, with say bay or sorrell and black . Never heard of Calico before .. she just looks to have darker palo color in some places.
Chimera is more of a brindle type from what I have heard.

From what I understand, almost all the horses with calico are cream + tobiano. This thread has some more pictures and links to pictures.

Tricolour isn't a bay and white pinto. Part of the bay colouring is black points, so the horse is bay and white. Not three colours, just two.
