Word of the Day: Piebald
What I think it means: Hm. I’ve heard this countless times regarding piebald mares in stories, but I’ve never actually taken the time to understand what exactly it meant. My guess would be short haired, although I believe that’s a guess based on the root word of bald.
What it actually means: Well, I was off the mark. Apparently it means patches of black and white or other colors; parti-colored. Glad I know now though! Though I don’t think I’ll have much opportunity to use it apart from animal descriptions, at least I’ll utilize it correctly!
