That is incorrect. What if the mare has that genetic disorder that is in QHs? If she is a paint, then she is part QH and can have it.
What if the mare carries frame? Unlike what a PP said, a horse can have a white pattern genetically but express it minimally. Being a 'solid' paint, she could carry frame, what if the stallion carries it too?
Also, if he is a coloured Paint (as in has large splotches of white and another colour) then he is
a pinto also.
Knowing genetics and colours is not needed to breed a foal. If you want to make a horse that is destined for a dog food can. Leave breeding to those who have the knowledge. Just because you have broken a horse in means nothing.
