Paint is refered to as a breed. Pinto is the coloring so if a horse does not have pinto coloring its just called a breeding stock paint. She's a tri colored (bay) overo paint. She's a paint but the markings are called pinto.

She is extremely cute though :)

Shes a quarter horse? Not like a saddlebred or arab with markings right?

Not a tri-colored at all. Just a plain old bay pinto.
Wallaby, smrobs and Paint Meadow like this.

Tri colored is refering to the brown on the body with the black mane and tail

Doesn't matter. It is NOT a tri-colored horse. A tri-colored horse is a horse that is three distinct colors. Bays do not fall into that category.

This is a true tri-colored horse.

Oh, I've been told by the vet that she looks like she's got some quarter horse in her. She looks like she holds her head like one, she's got kind'a of a gait, but I havn't bothered bringing it out. I think she's mixed between a quarter horse and something else! Be honest, I don't really know, just like to hear other opinions.....I guess.

Ok whatever I grew up with professional paint breeders and trainers but if she's a quarter horse she's a piant,
If she's another breed she's pinto since paint is considered a breed and pinto is a color pattern.
Saddlebreds and other breeds can exhibit that color pattern but that doesn't mean they are a paint because they are not quarter horses. Its slightly confusing but hopefully that helps a little. :)
