Unknown mare

I have a mare that I recently adopted and she is an obvious paint. I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way that I can find out if she is a registered paint. The state said her name was blue diamond but the only blue diamond was born in the 1960's. I hope someone can help!!! Thanks

I don't think you'll have much lucky unless a registration name and/or number is provided. If not, she's just considered a grade. But...You can't ride papers.

Paint isn't the only breed with pinto patterns...

I do realize paint aren't the only breeds with the pinto marking, but that is definitely what she is. I wrote a genetics paper about pinto markings and the breeds that can carry the various genes. I really just wanted to know if there was a way of finding out so I would know a little about her history. She has an old shoulder injury so I can't ride her and if I knew what she did in the past I might have an explanation for it. She's just a sweetheart :) I couldn't help but give her a good happy home. Papers or not :)

Have you tried contacting the American Paint Horse Association? They might be able to help you if you provide pictures etc., maybe you can match her markings, or do a blood test, something to match her to a registered horse... But there's always the possibility she's never been registered. If it's possible, I would suggest going through people, try to find her old owner, etc.

DNA test. Then you still may not get her papers

Please, share with us these indicators that she is definitely a paint based on what genes she carries?

Ditto what Chiilaa has said.

On the DNA thing... it is not possible to do a breed wide search to try and match. You MUST either know the sire/dam to test against or the horse if there is DNA for that horse on file. There is no way to run a database type search. The registries are not set up for that, nor do I see them being set up like that any time soon...

There's no way to test the DNA to find a parent? Well that's a bummer...

I suppose the only way you're going to find anything, OP, is by contacting the former owner, and going from there.

Nope no way to test unless you have specific horses to test against.
