It is so common for both non-horse and horse people to use terms that are technically incorrect.
Paint for a pinto pattern
Colt for any young horse, fillies and geldings (or gildings) included
15.5 hands for 15 1/2 hands (15.5 is 15 1/2 but should be written 15.2)
I'm sure there are more but I can't think of them offhand.
Mostly, I just listen to people rattle on.
