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...
She's a Bay Paint. A tri-colored paint has 3 colors on their body. Suki has Bay and White on her body, the black is in her mane so that doesn't count as the 3rd color.
She's not a medicine hat as it's conected to another spot on her body. Medicine hat would just be a spot that covers the ears. It's not connected to anything else.
She's a Tovero. That's the cross between Tobiano and Overo spots. How to tell the difference is Tobiano spots are more rounded. Overo are more jagged spots.
As for someone saying she's Sabino, I don't see it. I think it's just dried on mud on her butt flung onto there by her tail.
