Here are the things I know about Rusty:
He is a overo paint, but I am not good at classifying some colors... so I look at him at a loss. The friend I got him from referred to him as a splash paint, and from the research I have done, is the overo gene. So I have that part down... but the actual color is what I am stumped on.
Now about his blood line... I have no idea about the sire... but the dam was the daughter or grand daughter of rachett. When I look up rachett.. he is listed as a paint, but on down his line are TB and OH's. I know that's a tough question.. but I have heard some people say that paints are in a class of their own... but yet you have paints in almost every breed.. so that leaves me scratching my head lol. I have been referring to him as a QH... but I just want to be as accruate as possiable when I say that!
My friend took him because of the condition he was in, and had started putting weight on him... she already has a full herd though, and passed him on to me because I was looking at the time after having to give up my mare.
I would just like to know this for my own personal knowledge of him.
