Hi All

I am searching for a reference for a black and white pinto / piebald horse. Obviously there are lots of photos on the internet, but so far I cannot find any of the same animal taken from both sides. (I have photographic references for the chestnut and grey that I plan to paint.)

Can anyone help with photos or drawings?

Thanks in advance

Paul

References tend tend to only show one side – as you say, lots of photos, but also reference charts:

I'm pretty sure I took these two photos for just that reason. Some patches look browner on one side than the other but I think that is just the lighting.

@Swampster they will do nicely – great colouring.

Thank you!

Pinto is an American term I believe for black or brown and white horses. Skewbald and piebald are British terms, piebald being black and white so skewbald is the browns and white.
The pintos can be very mixed up and jumbled looked compared to 99% of the pie and skewbald types found in Europe that tend to look like the picture here in this thread.
So as with riders uniforms etc. it would depend on which part of the world the horse was from would dictate its colouring look.

I think ‘paint' may be the American term … although it applies to a breed.

I'm aware of the ‘pebald' and ‘skewbald' terms for colour, and the various terms for pattern.

… ‘piebald' even …

Oh! For an edit function! ;-)

Paint in America is an actual registered breed. But as a descriptive term either word works here I think.
