    I'd say more piebald than skewbald but probably tri-colour. He's cute

    He looks piebald

    Summer coats the best for telling you what colour he is, he may be piebald but not have 'true black' colouring so will sunbleach to a reddy brown

    Listen, smile, agree and then do whatever the hell you were going to do anyway.

    If he's tricolour, he's still skewbald as skewbald officially is any colour other than black, and white. The brown on his face and muzzle along with the black in the mane suggest he is tricolour.

    Hard to tell from photos, but I'd say piebald too.

    There's technically no such thing as a 'tri-coloured' when referring to a bay and white- or sometimes used when referring to a buckskin/white- it is simply a skewbald.
    I understand the logic behind it, say the horse is technically bay, with black points and white, hence three colours- but you wouldn't call a solid bay a 'bi-coloured', it is just one colour.

    Sorry, Pet hate of mine.

    Actually, looking at the first photo(the close up shot of the muzzle- it wouldn't load before) it looks like he may be bay and white, after all.

    from the first pic i'd say skewbald but it'll be easier to tell with his summer coat. He is really cute too he has the same sort of colouring as Fatcobs youngster
