appypaintx

Hi, not sure where to put this as I lost the thread, while going to sign up. I signed up here only because I saw a discussion on paint appy x. Look I just want to say I have one, Yes.. I bred it myself for myself 100% for temprement. I had a beautiful mare appy sport horse lovely quiet temprement smart bold and easy going. Was a beautiful paint stallion near by that also had a great temprement also throwing quiet foals so I crossed them. I know people look down on it, but you know what the foal is beautiful. Lovely confimation friendly, intelligent no 5th leg. No genetic issues. Really the most beautiful temprement which is what I was after. He is white lepard appy with chestnut spots 2 blue eyes, dark legs. Visable but pale baldy face from the paint side. Decent mane and tail, he's pale white but has mainly black skin from the paint which is actually better for sunburn in australian climate. Appy stripped hooves. So quiet, I broke him in myself no kick, buck, rear or bad behaviour at all. He's been cool in a group, out going will walk to the front of the crowd and happy at the back even as a green baby. To set the record straight I didnt breed him because im ignorant, I bred him because it was what I wanted, he's not registerable of course and I couldnt care less. I think theres a lot of people would love such as easy going horse. To the breeders with the ideal opinions in some ways you maybe right, but sometimes you forget there are a heck of a lot of horse people who just want a nice quiet athletic mount with good brains, hard hooves and a loving nature, even just to pleasure ride, trail ride, hunt, jump, round up sheep, local ag shows, put there kids on etc its not about the royal blue ribbons for everyone. I don't think its Backyard breeding when you've put thought into it and picked for confirmation and type that suits your needs. I waited 3 years to be able to put my butt on that horse, I wouldnt have done all that if I didnt have a plan about what I was hoping to get.

So.... what is the point of this thread exactly? To yell at people who haven't even spoken to you of your breeding decision?

No my point is, there not bad horses just because there from two different colours they have alot of positive atributes.

I was trying to respond to another discussion, obviously I didnt do it right. My bad. This Probably because I've never used a forum before. I was just tring to put forward some postive points about the x cross beed as heaps of negative comments. I thought that was the point of a forum. So glad to have come here and met such a warm reponse. Thanks heaps for the experiance.

trick training!!

Paint arabian... that sounds nice... yes. I found the trick training quite a fun idea, there is alot of how to trick train your horse on youtube. You can teach the circle, how to smile, pick up a hat etc you should check it out seems easier than you would think! That video was done on the first day so its pretty easy once they get the idea!
