    Interesting that so many consider "tri-color paint" a commonly used phrase to describe a bay paint/pinto. My old BO is a hardcore, old school cowboy. Horses are sorrel, bay, gray or black to him. A horse displaying a pinto pattern is a paint, regardless of breed or registry. Anything that isn't a quarter/stock horse is useless and anyone who uses anything but a western saddle ain't a real rider. Yet he despises the term "tri-color paint." He had a bay paint (APHA) mare he got in a herd dispersal off a ranch in New Mexico. When he sold her, he advertised her as a bay paint. Someone said "What a pretty tri-color" and he lost it (he's known for his short temper and blunt way). He said that the mare was a BAY, not a tri-color and that tri-color was just a fancy name some idiot came up with to make their bay paint seem more fancy (his words, not mine).

    My problem with the term "tri-color paint" is mainly that it encompasses too many colors and is thereby inherently vague. A buckskin paint/pinto would be considered "tri-color," as would a dun paint/pinto. Heck, if you wanted to make your horse seem even more speshul, you could call a palomino paint/pinto and a flaxen chestnut paint/pinto a tri-color. If someone can't physically see your horse and you called it a "tri-color paint," they would wonder what, exactly, the base color is (bay, buckskin, dun, etc).

    I gots a dual-colored chestnut. Stupid city folk call it a palomeenie, but I knows better. Heck, I even gots two tri-colored leper chestnuts. The vet calls them palomeenie lepers, but he's a old guy and mixes his metaphorses a lot. I had me a bunch of them tri-colored bay lepers and one of them tri-colored homospotless ones too, but I sold two of 'em and traded the other one off on a new couch for the porch...

    I kinda feel like they're my horses and I will call them what I want. In other words, if that's all you have to upset you in life is someone else's ignorance then you are doing better than most, and shouldn't let it bother you.

    Well, yea he was that, when he brought him to me, but I wouldn't call him that as much anymore. He is gaining weight very nicely over the last couple of weeks without over doing it.

    He is one of 3 horses I am working on getting up to weight and muscle due a lack of ability on the previous owner's part. I'm just thankful they gave them up before it became fatal.

    I'd call him a brown pinto (or paint, if he's registered) with frame and splash (I think).

    I agree with the OP. By this logic palomino, buckskin, dun, and silver dapple paints would ALL be "tri-colored."

    If I were horse shopping I wouldn't even look at a horse advertised as a "tri-color paint." It just screams "uneducated owner."
