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.
    Im sorry but I have to disagree. The Paint horse Association is a BREED registry not a color registry like Pinto. If that were the case, then solid Appaloosas shouldn't be registered either now should they?

    Id take a solid paint or solid Appy with a great disposition, conformation and pedigree over one that was colored but lacking in one area or another.

    Too many people are "seeing" spots and that is a shame....

    I was told there conformation and deposition should be that of a qh or tb. So then explain the difference to me between a qh or tb then a non colored paint.

    In no way do I promote color over a correct and well bred horse.
    I do, however, support the idea of more strict requirements with the APHA requiring color in ADDITION to the other requirements.

    ^^exactly.

    I would take a breeding stock paint or non colored appy anyday if it was better built and had a good disposition.

    A paint is a stock horse, naturally its going to look like a QH or Appy! However in no way can I agree that they should be so degraded. They are already in a "different category" and its about time that APHA has started to recognize these horses. Im glad that the APHA is adding more incentives and classes for the solid Paints. Its been too long that APHA has given more attention/incentives to the colored horses (and I can see why) but its made the solids look terrible.

    I cannot agree with you, sorry.

    I'm sorry if this goes off topic but....

    What exactly is a stock horse? I though the term was used to describe a non-gaited horse. You know, a gaited horse and then a stock horse, which would mean it performed a hard trot. Am I wrong on this? Or are they working horses? I'm confused!!!

    A stock horse is a working horse (ie used for working cattle). When most people use the term "stock horse" they are referring to one that is Paint, QH or Appy.
