    Guilty as charged any bay, or buckskin appy or pinto is tri coloured to me.
    I have heard it all my life and if you ever talk to some of the oldtimers and use words like splash or sabino they look at you like your from mars.
    I am only concerned with the colours of bay, black, grey, or chestnut if it is an Arabian.
    Add buckskin, brown dun and palomino if it is anything else. Forgot Cremello or Perlino.
    Pinto are overo, tobiano, or tovero IMO as they are registered.
    Faceman has explained the Appy patterns but if I have any colour question I wll PM either Chillaa or NDappy and use all the proper relevant terms. Only so they don't think I am a total idiot. Shalom

    "Tri-color" falls into the category of terms that we who study color genetics twitch at. Other include overo, tovero, skewbald, and piebald. Though I personally see piebald and skewbald as more annoying than tri-color. At least nearly any person I've heard use tri-color has always referred to a bay pinto. Skewbald is ridiculously vague.

    This brings up for me the topic of the different patterns of Paints and Appaloosas. That is one thing I'm not all too familiar with! Anyone have any knowledge to share?

    Morgan Colors- Your Information Station for Morgan Color Genetics and Color History is a favorite of mine. Any individual questions can be answered in the Colors and Genetics section. There are a few of us who enjoy studying color genes and are more than happy to help others learn.

    But who cares about color genetics, other than that small group? The point is, or should be, that if you have a bunch of horses in a field, and tell the guy standing next to you "Look at that tri-color one" (or bay, palamino, etc), he's going to know which one you're talking about. Language is about communication, and when you insist on using the language of your in-group with people outside that group, you aren't communicating.

    So why even USE the term "tri-color paint" when bay paint describes the same horse just as well, if not better? "Tri-color paint," aside from being genetically incorrect, is also superfilous. Is "bay paint" not "speshul" enough to describe a bay paint/pinto, that there has to be another name for it?

    Hmmm I definitely have color preferences, I prefer a solid color. However at the end of the day, no matter what color the horse is or how we refer to a particular color doesn't matter as much as how well the horse performs for us in our chosen discipline I like to hear the correct terminology because it makes having a mutually understood conversation a lot easier to follow......nevertheless I have google to help me out!
