The last one is similar to this filly:

I agree with NdAppy on the last pic. Usually what causes colours like that is that the horse has two different DNA types. In that perspective it's similar to a brindle, but is not at all a brindle.
And with your zebra pic, just by looking at the colours I don't think that it's completely a zebra. It could be a zebroid, a cross between a zebra and a horse/donkey. I think so because if it were a dilute, it would be more of a buckskin and have black points, like the muzzle would still be dark. And if it were a double dilute it might be lighter than it is, but the mouth would either be white or pink too... So I doubt it's 100% zebra

Actually... I take back what I just said about the zebra... I just looked up some dilute zebra colours. I found one that is a dilute... It looks like it may be the exact same zebra... It says it's a dilute of a dun.
I still question that it's 100% zebra for a colour like that though

The last one is not a brindle, he is a true tri-colored horse, meaning that he has three separate colors (not to be confused with the misuse of the term tri-colored when describing a bay paint/pinto). He's a stallion named Stetons Mr Blue.

I did a post about tri colored horses on my blog not too long ago: Maggie Bright: Tri-colored horses

The one pictures in the OP I believe is this girl: Tanzania Wildlife | Is it an Albino Zebra? | Wildlife sightings in Klein's Camp who lives in the wild.

I believe the name for 'tricolor' horses is chimeric. Here's another example:

You are partly correct. Yes the only true tri-colored horses are chimeric. Though...the horse you posted is not tri-colored. It would have to be two different body colors along with a white pattern. Such as that famous picture of the Icelandic I believe who is black/chestnut tobiano.

She is tricolour - she has a sock and a star lol.

You can also call horses that are chimeric "mosaic".

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.
