    Im working an Appy Paint cross and she is to smart for her own good. If she gets bored she can open just about amy gate that's not padlocked shut and I ride her she tries desperately to do everything I ask of her. She goes into "work mode" and will run down anything in front of her I don't ask her to go around because she knows very well she's supposed to focus on me lol.

    My tibiano Paint is also VERY smart. The others are smart as well, but she, too, will open gates and she has taught herself tricks, its really crazy what she comes up with! We've installed security gates so that when she gets through one she is still in a confined space. Luckily, for me, she is also afraid of everything...so when she does escape she usually gets sacred and goes back into the paddock!

    I Just noticed that most Paints and Apps have AQHA in their lineages both our Paint and Appaloosa i'd say are half QH even though their parents and grandparents are all registered either Paint or App

    My family raises Appaloosa Race Horses. And I can attest from being around several hundred Ap's they are as different in personality and conformation as any other breed. Today's Appaloosa is really just another quarter horse with color, much like today's Paint Horse.

    Im sorry I know this post is old but people call Appy's slow who acted like this,but not true..Appaloosa's have problems with thier eyes so when people think they are stumbling,cant find their buckets, gate issues are due to being slow..In fact they probally are having a hard time seeing what they are doing.. It is an Appy thing,due to breeding not being slow..

    "Equine recurrent uveitis (ERU) is a disease complex characterized by recurring episodes of active uveitis. It is important to note that one bout of uveitis does not equal a diagnosis of ERU. The horse must have evidence for recurring episodes of uveitis to be diagnosed with ERU. This disease is one of the oldest known conditions of the horse. The term “moon blindness” comes from the early and incorrect theory that recurrent episodes were linked to the phases of the moon.

    How often does it occur, and which horses are most commonly affected?

    Equine recurrent uveitis is thought to have a prevalence of 8% in horses in the United States. (1,2) There appears to be an increased incidence of ERU in the Appaloosa breed. There have been no studies to investigate the prevalence within the Appaloosa breed alone, however, in one study of 112 horses with uveitis, 28 (25%) were Appaloosas. When this was compared to the number of horses without uveitis (10/260 were Appaloosas) the odds of finding uveitis were 8.3 times greater in Appaloosas than in all other breeds combined. (3) Appaloosas also have a greater risk of becoming blind from ERU compared to other breeds. (3)"
