Frank is a real horse associated with Stevecv, owner of EquisCraft, who has always been close with the SWEM team. Frank is fondly known and loved for his adorable appearance and personality.
Frank's coat, known as 'tri-colour skewbald' may be known by other names, such as Pinto. Skewbald is a term frequently used in the UK to identify a brown or chestnut horse with white markings, as opposed to a Piebald which is white and black. The term 'tri-colour' is a somewhat colloquial phrase to differentiate a bay Skewbald that retains some expression of a black mane and tail (meaning 3 colours are present; brown, black, white). The most common genetics or markings seen in skewbald horses is that of Tobiano, but skewbald-type markings can be caused by other genetic factors such as Frame Overo, Splash and Sabino. It is possible that several of those could be present on a horse at one time.
