Could My Mare Be Considered A Medicine Hat?
4 Attachment(s)
I've been trying to figure out if my 4 year old Paint mare, Arrow, could be considered a medicine hat. Any help would be appreciated!

I dont think so. Medicine hat markings are not supposed to extent beyond the eyes, giving it the impression of a hat on their heads

That is what I was thinking but I just wanted to be sure. Thanks!

like lilruffian said, if the markings go beyond the eyes,,it's not considered one...but what cool markings she has, and love that black on her front leg..definetly an eye catcher!

I would say no as well. Medicine hats look exactly as they sound. A hat. It shouldn't extend over the eyes or down the neck like your horse has.

And, they're are suppose to have colored markings on their flanks, if I rememeber reading right.
But she is purty!
