Piebald: Piebald refers to a spotted animal, often a horse, but it was not always a horse. Piebald goes back to European birds: magpies and woodpeckers (family: picidae; genus: picus) who sported odd, black and white coloration.
His fierce eye gazed out across the mighty army: black rats, brown rats, grey rats, piebald rats, skulking weasels, furtive stoats and sinuous ferrets, all gathered around, their weapons glistening and dripping with the rain.
