Paint pattern? med. hat? tri?

You all seem to have fun doing this, lol... so here is my paint mare, Suki. She's three yrs old. What pattern paint? And would she be considered a medicine hat? I've also heard of a war bonnet, but don't really understand the difference between the medicine hat and war bonnet. The red coloring on her head does attach to the one side of her face, but NOT attach to the war sheild on her chest. Her mane covers that detail. And If you can't see in the pics, she has black in her tail and forelocks, and some black spotting on her legs and above her hooves. Is she tri-colored, b/c I have read a few threads on here saying there arent very many true tri colors... I don't get why... lol...

Ok first things first, no. Bay and white is not tri-coloured, and since that is what she is, no, she isn't tri-coloured. Bay, although made up of brown and black, is still only one colour.

As for her pattern, I see tobiano (definitely) sabino (almost definitely) and MAYBE frame. Actually, looking at her blaze makes me think frame a bit more than maybe, but still not completely certain.

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.

brown horse with black mane or tail = bay. The white in her tail and mane are in direct relation to white skin on that area. Since she is a bay and white she is not a true tri colored paint. She is also not a medicine hat/war bonnet. The medicine hat and/or war bonnet is generally though to mean exclusively covering the ears and nothing else on the head.

Bay is a horse with a brown coat and black points. The points of the horse are the legs, ears, muzzle, mane and tail. While you can't see many of her points, you can see her mane is black, and her muzzle and ear tips too.

O I see! Altho I probably woulnt b able to pic that out on another horse. That's why her spotss on her legs r black, b/c if the white wasnt there she'd have black points?! And a medicine hat is really only allowed to have a war shield and all white, right? And about her pattern...which of the three? Or all? Lol...
