I always thought that paints that were considered Medicine Hats had a colored shield-like patch on their chest and a colored patch over their poll and ears. But recently I heard someone refer to their paint as a Medicine Hat even though it had no chest shield. If the horse doesn't have the shield, can it still be classified as a Medicine Hat?
Here you go. A description of what the medicine hat is supposed to be. "The important distinguishing characteristic of a Medicine Hat is the head. The rest of the body can be of any other pattern. But in order to get a white head and colored ears and cap, most Medicine Hats or War Bonnets are mostly white in color with very few other colored patches." The horse can be a medicine hat with or without the shield, as the term refers solely to the color on the polls and ears regardless of the rest of the body.
Okay, that clears everything up. Thank you.
