There is no such thing as a "tri-color" Paint. It's just a term people with no knowledge of genetics came up with. Technically ANY bay or buckskin horse with white markings could be considered "tri-color" since all it means is three colored. I can't see your photos well on my phone, but he appears blatantly overo so from a genetically correct standpoint he would be bay splashed white or bay frame overo for example. Calling him a tri-color is much like using the terms chestnut and sorrel - both are just terms to describe a red based horse that genetically is always red regardless which terms you use.
