Bay is also a popular option, which means a brown horse with a black tail and mane. Gray is a gray or white horse. Buckskins, paints, and palominos aren’t as common, but you see them every so often.

Pinto Horse Like a Cow
This is a basic horse coat color. The pinto features a partly white and brown or black shade and almost resembles a cow because of the spotty pattern. Sometimes, people call them “paints,” but they could be mixed breeds that have pinto coloring. Paints are usually part thoroughbred and part quarter horse!
“Sabino” focuses on a specific spotting pattern that might appear on the horse’s coat. It’s always white and produced by a gene called the Sabino 1 gene. There’s a DNA test your horse can take to determine if it’s a sabino or roan.
