She's just a bay tovero.
    I'm not talking about the tail, Poseidon (BTW, her forelock is black too). She has black triangles (2 on each side on all 4 legs) going from hoofs up the leg. Which I'm not very surprised with (her dad was black/white). Really weird looking in reality (but hard to see on pics). Those were pointed to me by the paint breeder I know as a basis to register her as tri-colored. Again, not something I care or would do, but it was quite interesting to hear (as I never thought there is such a thing as "tri-colored").

    The black on her legs would be because she's a bay. It's just because of the overo and tobiano genes that are making the rest white.

    Po, that is clearly her satin gene showing.
    Wallaby and Poseidon like this.

    Like I was saying to you, Kiara is ALMOST identical to my Suki. Suki also has black on her legs, tail and forelock, and ear tips, and nose skin, but if you actually took off all the white they are bays. The are black where the bay tips would be. So my Suki and ur Kiara are bay paints. Tovero bay paints to be exact.

    Again, once I saw what a true tri color looks like, I like my bay paint better :). A true tri color paint will have the black and brown everywhere. One pic I was shown was a brown and white with a huge brown spot on the whole butt, and the tail was also black.

    @Poseidon could you post a pic of a true tri paint?

    This is the picture you're talking about:


    The two colors on that foal are completely unrelated.

    Oh, I figured she posted it that it had to be hers.
    I do like the thumb ring though.

    Hehehe I kind of figured that. I know that I have posted that same picture before, so that is the only reason I knew it wasn't Po's thumb. I agree on the thumb ring!

    There's an ad that's been posted a few times on my local Craigslist lately for a "tri-color paint." I click it, expecting to see a bay paint, and it's actually a BLACK paint with some sun fading. Too funny!
