2 Infovets Educational Resources – – Slide 2 The Five Basic Body Colors  Brown  Chestnut  Bay  Black  White

3 Infovets Educational Resources – – Slide 3 Brown  The animal should have an all brown body. The mane & tail may be darker but not black or with a reddish tint to it.

4 Infovets Educational Resources – – Slide 4 Chestnuts  A chestnut is a horse with a reddish coat with non-black points (mane, tail, legs, ears).  There are basically three types of chestnuts:  Liver Chestnut  Chestnut  Sorrel  Sorrel and chestnut both generally refer to the same color. Chestnut is the English term, while sorrel originated in the west as the cowboy term.

5 Infovets Educational Resources – – Slide 5 Chestnuts  Generally, when both chestnut and sorrel are used, chestnut is restricted to darker reds and sorrel to light reds.  Liver chestnut, the darkest of the red shades, is a distinctive murky red/black. Very dark shades can look almost black.  Chestnut is a deep red color. Variations include dark chestnut and red chestnut, sometimes called cherry sorrel.  Sorrels have a clear orange coat, often with lighter colored legs. They are often called light chestnut in those breeds that don't use the word sorrel. It is difficult to distinguish a sorrel from a true light chestnut, which is more yellowish, showing little or no red. The mane and tail are often the same as the body, or can be flaxen.

32 Infovets Educational Resources – – Slide 32 Pintos & Paints  What is the difference between Pintos and Paints?  The Paint Horse is limited to horses of documented and registered Paint, Quarter Horse, or Thoroughbred breeding.  The difference in eligibility between the two registries has little to do with color or pattern; only bloodlines.  While most Paints can be double registered as Stock or Hunter type Pintos, PtHA also allows for the registration of miniature horses, ponies, and horses derived from other breed crosses, such as Arabian, Morgan, Saddlebred, and Tennessee Walking Horse, to name a few.

33 Infovets Educational Resources – – Slide 33 Tobiano  The dark color usually covers one or both flanks.  Generally, all four legs are white, at least below the hocks and knees.  Generally, the spots are regular and distinct as ovals or round patterns that extend down over the neck and chest, giving the appearance of a shield.  Head markings are like those of a solid-colored horse--solid, or with a blaze, strip, star or snip.  A tobiano may be either predominantly dark or white.  The tail is often two colors.

34 Infovets Educational Resources – – Slide 34 Overo  The white usually will not cross the back of the horse between its withers and its tail.  Generally, at least one and often all four legs are dark.  Generally, the white is irregular, and is rather scattered or splashy.  Head markings are distinctive, often bald-faced, apron-faced or bonnet-faced.  An overo may be either predominantly dark or white.

35 Infovets Educational Resources – – Slide 35 Tovero  Toveros have dark pigmentation around the ears, which may expand to cover the forehead and/or eyes.  One or both eyes are blue.  There is dark pigmentation around the mouth, which may extend up the sides of the face and form spots.  There may be chest spot(s) in varying sizes, which may also extend up the neck.  Toveros have flank spot(s) ranging in size. These are often accompanied by smaller spots that extend forward across the barrel, and up over the loin.  There are spots, varying in size, at the base of the tail.
