This is a tricolour with a patch of non-dilute.

This is a true tricolour.

If a bay and white was a tricolour, every bay horse with a white marking would be considered tricolour.
Stupid question of the day, but couldn't the buckskin colt just have a bend or' spot? What makes it tri-color, vs. a bend or' spot or something similar?

I had a brown Arab with a black spot in his coat. I always considered it a bend or' spot. So how would you separate something like that from a tri-color? Where do you draw the line is I guess what I am asking?

By the way, the pony is wicked cool!

THR - usually Bend Ors appear as the horse ages, rather than being there from birth. They also tend to be smaller, and fairly uniform in shape. They also tend to be sootier in colour - rather than, in this case, a patch of the 'original' coat base colour.

Omg I love the CM FB page! I LOVEEE those photos. The one of the Vanner with the silver mane is beautiful.

I remember when I was naive and thought a bay/bucksin paint meant it was tricolor. Then I realized BAY is ONE color, and adding white only makes it a DUO colored horse. Just because black, brown, and white are present, doesn't mean it's a true tri-color. I must admit though, I LOVE the bay paints.
