I used to ride this paint. He looked like a solid paint except for a perfect white blotch right in the middle of his tummy. No one ever knew he was a paint or saw the spot unless they were told it was there.

He was quite a neat horse.

There are appaloosas with no spots!!! One of the lesson horses in my barn is a purebred appy with no spots..here is a pic

Just thought I would mention that there are solid appys ha ha ha

eerrr. There is such a thing as a Solid Appaloosa. I used to ride one, and my BM owns one. Still I wonder their purpose.

Edit- didn't see prior post. Oh well.

what's the point of breeding for color when it's not going to effect the quality of the horse in the long run?

Even if it is born solid though, it is registered a paint because it has paint lines in either mom, dad, or both. That was as simply as I could put it...:)

Also, if you breed:

Paint w/color X paint w/color, you have 75% chance of paint baby
Homozygous paint X other horse solid or colored, you have 100%
Paint w/color X other breed (not paint) 50% chance of color
Paint w/color X solid paint, 75% color.......

.....I think that is the case, but someone can correct me if I am wrong...It may be a bit more complex. :)
Interesting post but I agree with what has been said. It would be the same thing with any other breed.

Actually I think paint is a dominant over solid so:

Paint x Paint (if neither is homozygous): 1/4 will be homozygous, 1/2 will be heterozygous, and 1/4 will be solid.
Paint x Solid (paint isn't homozygous): 1/2 will be heterozygous and 1/2 will be solid.
Solid x Solid: will always produce a solid.
Homozygous Paint x Heterozygous Paint: 1/2 homozygous and 1/2 heterozygous.
Homozygous Paint x Homozygous Paint: 100% homozygous paints
Homozygous Paint x solid: 100% heterozygous paints

^^A little bit of overkill on that one.

And imo, there is no "point" of solid paints, but they are classified as paints because of their breeding.

They are for people that like the paint breeding but don't like horses that are marked up! Like ME! I really don't like the look of a colored paint...
