Fresh paint


Now I know that the more readily accepted name for these horses is "paint" but every time I see one - especially a black and white one like this guy who lives on the way into town - I say "pinto". It's all because of Little Joe Cartwright on Bonanza. He rode a pinto, and pinto it will always be in my head.

Mom used to quiz me on what color horse each Cartwright rode.

Let's see if I get this right: Ben "Pa" rode a buckskin; Adam rode black; Hoss rode a sorrel (I think). ??

I know for sure Ben and Adam are right. So I'm guessing Hoss is too.

And their names Buck, Chub, and Chocice.

Okay, I can figure out Buck is the buckskin. Cochise was the pinto, right? Chub? Was that Hoss' big sorrel? So then what was Adam's horse's name?
