I consider a grade that is any unregistered horse. Or registered only in a color registry (buckskin, pinto, palomino) because its purely based off of color, not breed. But that's just my opinion. If its double registered APHA/Pinto, sure, but just Pinto...Not so much IMO.
Half-Arabian...Im kind of on the edge about that...Its still a 'cross-breed' But there are high quality horses there. (as well as in the color registries, but...you get what Im saying...Right?)

Totally get what you're saying.
Lilly is registered pinto, however as you can see, not by her coloring lol. Her dam was an Anglo-arab and sire was registered as a paint and it was the paint that let her into the pinto registry. Even though she is registered pinto, her lines are documented and traceable to the beginning of time... or something like that. Nonetheless, she is a good solid mare with a fantastic mind and just enough Arab sass.
ETA - if you really want to get into the nitty gritty of her breeding, her dam was actually 7/8 arab and 1/8 thoroughbred. Lilly is technically 1/2 paint, 7/16 arab and 1/16 thoroughbred. ... but that is a considerable mouthful. Posted via Mobile Device
