The painted horses are minor characters in The Backyardigans.
The painted horses are part of a painting in the art museum. At night, they spring to life and act similarly to real horses. They are able to jump out of their painting and roam the halls of the museum.
The painted horses are mostly an orange-brown color. They have white muzzles and black manes.
The painted horses have appeared in one episode of The Backyardigans: "Who Goes There?" from season three.
