Caught in a fence line as a foal LONG before I knew him. One scar on his leg from it as well.

Suki ran into the corner of our run in shelter the first day I had her and has a nice skin tag above her eye.

A tri-color paint IS very rare then! I don't get this whole color thing tho, but I understand why you would want to know if your breeding them. She will not be bred. Too many other horses that need homes.

Btw, I did know what a bay was. I know the basics, but when you start getting into smooty bucksin, dun, cremello, this color will be here, but sometimes here....I get really confused, lol....But thanks for the compliment! My neighbor had a horse for only a short time (a quarter with a bald face) and I fell in love. Of course I couldnt buy him he was priced at $10000! So I looked all summer until I found her! Wasnt sure about buying a 4month old when I had no horse experience, but it gave us time to learn about each other and for me to get comfortable with a horse. And starting a horse under saddle really opens your eyes to how they learn, see, and feel things! The saying green plus green equals black and blue is soooo true! But I made a commitment to her and Im learning probably more than her!

Some colors confuse me too, but I know a good bit about cremello's. I have a cremello paint mare named Bonnie.

Is she registered APHA? If not I would call her a bay pinto. If she is, then yes, I would call her a bay paint.

As for her pattern, she is obviously tobiano with some combination of "overo" (splash, frame, etc.) patterns going on. Tovero in and of itself is not a pattern but a combination of patterns.

I'd call her a bay tovero. Pretty, not a med. Hat because of the color on the side of her face. Poco1220 posted a good example of a med. Hat, the head is all that matters, the body can be any color/pattern.

LOL, this stuff is confusing, hehe... No I had her mother/fathers info to register her, but never did, and I lost the papers, and the originals were lost in a fire. But o, well. I only plan to ride her in fairs, parades, and small competitions. That will be later on down the road tho, I just got her started under saddle this year. I love knowing what colors the ACTUALLY are, but this has all made me realize how much about horse colors I don't understand, haha.... A bay should be a bay, but they range in color soooo much! And paints have all these catagories that are head spining, hehe... then its just all making my head hurt! I don't know how some of you do it!
