An officially registered Pinto horse has white spots on the head or legs, or both on the head and legs, but not less than 10 square meters. If it is a pony, the area of the spot is 7.5 square meters. In the first case, white spots may spread throughout the body, but the spine line is always crossed. The concentration of the spots is different, often only the head with the stomach remains dark and white spots on the head are not excluded.
