Her mane and tail are black with some red highlights and wherever her legs have color it is black....her body is a managerie of browns and black.....If she were solid I would say she would be a dark bay. So, who knows...she is all mixed up.

    Your horse is brown and white. She is definitely NOT a tricolour - tricolour means three colours, and she only has two. Bay and brown are colours defined by the pattern of brown and black hairs. They may have more than one colour of hair, but they are still just one colour - brown is one colour, bay is one colour. Adding white to that makes two colours - brown and white or bay and white.

    She could be a tricolor paint.
    In the winter, my friend's horse looks black and white, but then she gets lighter in the summer and gets grey ^like yours, around the brown spots

    These horses are black:

    The more we learn about horse health, the more the theory is shifting from "true blacks don't fade" to something more about how a healthy horse that is getting adequate amounts of all vitamins and minerals is much less likely to fade than one who is not.
