ok so i have a 3 1/2 coming on 4 paint tabiano horse. she is bay and white but she has this area on her neck where the bay goes to black not dark bay but black. the area has white splotches on black. her body is bay, her main and tail is black,and dark brown, with a few strands of white here and there. So my question is does this make her a "tri- color" paint?

I'll bet the "black" area is under the mane. Do you have pictures?

If your Paint is bay\white, he's already classified as a tri-colored :D

yeah i dont know a lot about paints, but in piebald/ skewbald terms we would call it an odd coloured or tri, dont know what it would be in American paint terms though.

In American Paint terms, it would just be a "bay paint."

Tricolored (there's no dash) is a made-up horse term. It has always been used to describe dogs, never horses. You will never see it used in a breed registry or anything official.

If you Google "tricolored Paint," the only results you will get are for sale ads written by people who don't even know how to spell.

I'm not trying to insult the people who said he was tricolored. It's a very common mistake, but still incorrect.
