Yes. If a 'bay and white' was a tricolour, then every bay horse with a white marking would be a tricolour. A tricolour needs two different colours and white - bay is one colour.

No a bay with a white pattern is not a tri-colored horse. It is just a bay with a white pattern. The two pictures that Chiilaa posted are perfect examples of true tri-colored horses.

I think to help make the point more effective to people who may be misunderstanding is that TRUE tri-colors are exceedingly, almost impossibly, rare. Equine color doesn't typically operate in that fashion, as can be seen by the pony in the second photo who has a chestnut front end and black hind end.

That being said, what is up with that pony? Is it a form of chimerism?

Yes, I believe he is a chimera.

It actually looks like it has been removed. It was a badly photoshopped picture of a bay pinto gypsy stallion.

That was my next question. I remember reading the convo and the OMG YOU MEANIE! Type posts and clicking the back button. Did not have the patience to even comment at that time.

Correct. The mane and tail do not define a base color. A bay is a bay - it is not bay and black...nor is a solid palomino palomino and white...

Wish I had a pic from a pony I knew when I was younger. She was the first tri color I saw and she looked like a calico cat. She was a mean little thing too :)

I need to get some good pics of my baby. Well, yearling. I think he is tri colored for sure. His head is brown, with an almost T blaze. White line across forehead and down nose. Body,predominantly white, but bay spots. And lately some black spots too. His mane is white, but forelock black. And tail mixed white.and black.
