Breeding Stock?

I get a lot of grief from people because I feel that my BS paint is just as good as their Paints. I know that he "should" have color b/c his daddy is a paint BUT he is perfect just the way his is. He is BUILT! Just ask me I'll tell you. Lol

Anyway, just curious what your thoughts were on the Breeding Stock paints. I know that the APHA is trying to promote the breed with all the free classes and I am great with the promoting it and the free part.

Everyone keeps telling me - he is just another brown horse - I don't see that part. I see that he well put together... he is stocky in all the right places, moves great, he has a great rump and chest on him, a little uneven at the moment but with him being a yearling that will change tomorrow :)

Anyway - just curious of your thoughts.


Ps love them or hate them I would like your opinion.

Hey, I have a breeding stock 2 year old and he can kick just about anyones but! I think they are just fine. They starting having BS classes in Piant Shows and here. So I think they are getting promotted. Just they need showmanship! AGH

On the papers what makes your horse a paint? No spot anywhere?

I love paints but I find them to be alot like a qh (breeding) and find not much differance.

I feel that color should be of the least importance. What is important is correct conformation, pedigree and disposition.

But Paints are a "color breed" and that should be taken into consideration. Would I ever consider a colored paint over a solid because one had spots and the other didnt? No. Like I said, color is my least of worries when looking at horses.

It is nice to have spots though but I wouldn't worry about what other people say. Ignorance is all it is. :roll:

I would imagine a Paint without spots to look exactly like a quarter horse or a thoroughbred...sounds like she is a QH X to produce the Paint.....

Well that would depend on the sire's and dam's breeding. A paint is a stock horse breed, so it wouldnt have any other breeding but Paint, QH or TB bloodlines. Those are the only acceptable crosses for registration with the APHA. So depending on what the sire/dam look like will give you an idea of what he looks like.

Just because he's solid doesn't mean he'll look like a QH or TB. And just because he is solid, doesn't mean he is a QH cross either.

I just mean that a solid horse would not look at all like a tb....

Well I do love breeding stock paints I really do but I think that the APHA shouldn't really allow the whole thing. I mean a PAINT horse is a horse with spots. I think APHA is already as lenient as they need to be. Though breeding stock paints are very great horses and stuff maybe they should have their own registration so that APHA is left with colored horses. Again, I have NOTHING against bs paints. I know a couple! They are fabulous horses, one in a million but I think for a breed registration about color non-colored horses shouldn't be allowed.
