can a medicine hat NOT have a "hat"?

Just curious as someone was telling me the other day that they have a medicine hat paint however when I saw the horse - the whole head is white. Thoughts?

Then it's not a medicine hat paint, it's just a paint. In order to be classified as a medicine hat, they need the correct markings.

What Speed said.

If the horse doesn't have the correct markings, it's not a medicine hat.

Is the paint by chance a max sabino? My max sabino has a Medicine Hat but the sabino gene has "roaned" it out. The inside of his ears is still solid red though. You can see the red ticking on his ears and the black mottled skin.

I highly doubt it. He still has color on other parts of his body - namely a large patch of chestnut on his flank and butt but the rest of him is blindly white. He does have natural black eyeliner though. His ears are white both inside and out.

Well the eyeliner is caused by the sabino gene I believe. But he doesn't sound like a Medicine Hat. I wish you had a picture though. I think your friend might be confused.

Off topic, but I LOVE his eye liner! It's so bold!
