    PO that is because those breeders actually know what they are talking about.


    Tricolored is not a term accepted by anyone who is the least bit knowledge able as it is not correctly used term.

    Bays, buckskins, etc. are not tricolored horses.

    I'm just curious Ndappy, why isn't a bay or buckskin paint a tri-color, since it has black, white, and brown/cream? I didn't know a horse needed three different colors on its actual body to be considered tri-colored. What about a bay overo paint with black points on its legs?

    When you grow up with things it sticks in your head for years. I grew up with crazy trick riding paint breeders its what it was referred to.

    Because buckskin, bay, etc are single colors. You don't refer to a buckskin as two different colors because it happens to be yellow and black. So with the addition of white to what is only considered a single color, 1 + 1 = 2, making buckskin/bay/etc + white just two colors.

    Does that make sense? Basically, you wouldn't refer to a horse with black points like bay or buckskin as "bicolored" so saying tricolored is asinine.

    Thanks! That does make sense. I'm going to go do some research on real tri-colored horses, I didn't know until today that there was even such thing as a paint with two colors BESIDES white, very cool.

    Chimerism is when a single being (in this case, a single horse) has two different sets of DNA. Usually it is caused by originally started as twins in the womb, then fusing together into one animal.

    Rabicano - No. It's just another white pattern.
    Brindles - The majority of them, yes, which is why a true brindle is so rare.
