I touched on this in a post long ago, but it's worth a more detailed exploration. Thoroughbreds - yes, the speedy horses of racing fame - don't just come in solid colors like bay, gray, black and chestnut, although those are the more common colors.

Sabino and overo are also found, as are occasional oddball colors such as brindle and strange spots. The latter tend to be one-time individual mutations, but sabino and overo can be passed on, and come in a wide array of variations, from a few white markings to wild speckly, roany patterns.
