What color Pattern is my yearling
4 Attachment(s)
I got this filly about 3 1/2 weeks ago just curious but what is she an overo? I keep getting told she is a pinto becouse of the siver running around her white and brown spots? any ideas? I know she is a tri color check out the ticking around her hooves I like it and hope it doesn't fade out with age~ and she is a rescue! I didn't make her this way

Paint is a breed; Pinto is a color pattern and mostly referred to pleasure breeds instead of stock breeds.

The pattern your horse has is Tobiano, a bay tobiano. :)

Bay Tobiano and a perfect example of one.

Oh and the black marks around her hooves are 'ermine spots' they are a marking and probably wont fade. :)

I absolutely love the markings around her hooves!

Great example of a tobiano! More specifically, a bay tobiano. Paint is a breed, like a Quarter Horse or an arab. Pinto is a color term that people usually use to describe pleasure breeds. What breed is she?

Bay tobiano

I agree with the Bay Tobiano. There is no such thing as a tri-coloured paint. Its just sellers hype. Another example would be a rose-grey horse. Some people will believe its a rare colour and pay more but its just a chestnut turning grey. Still pretty, but doesn't last as they go fully grey.

My horse has the black markings around his hooves and they stayed..

She's very cute by the way!

she is bay tobiano, I love the spots around her hooves, it looks like she stepped in ink lol. She is very cute, love the little lightning strike on her face, congrats on rescuing her :)

Pinto is a term used for any colour pattern on any horse that is not a paint.

Bay Tobiano's Feet Markings
Nice filly - those black markings on her feet are not ticking, they are ermine spots and they will not fade, so that's good news!

Ticking is like a small section of white hairs that look like a little bit of roaning.
