Included in ancient Egyptian art are images of spotted horses. Part of any breed, Pintos are easily recognized by their patches of white. Usually either piebald or skewbald, these horses have hair but are characterized by their coloring. Piebald refers to a black and white spotting pattern while skewbald is the term for white and chestnut or bay patches. Popular in the United States, Pintos are strictly scrutinized by color, pattern, and other visual aspects. “Pinto” is Spanish, meaning “painted”. Pintos have unique, beautiful fur drawings that give the horses more personality. Nevertheless, the Pintos do not form a separate breed. They are a colour breed, which is found in almost all breeds. The coat patterns are different in "Overo" and "Tobiano". Overos have a coloured coat with white piebald. Their head is often completely white. It's a so-called "lantern". Tobianos on the other hand, have a white coat with coloured piebald. Legs and back remain mostly white.
