Of all the paints I've ever rode, there was only ever 1 that I didn't like...but that's just because we didn't get along well.

My dislike of the breed is purely aesthetic. I don't like the look of a horse with a lot of white on them, so my favorite paints are those with minimal markings.

I don't dislike paints. I don't LOVE them, just because oftentimes I find the paint pattern a bit bland. Every so often I will see one that's just stunning, but I wouldn't go out of my way to own one.

Does that mean I dislike them? Absolutely not! If I found the perfect horse and he happened to be a paint, well, dandy! I guess I'd have a paint horse! The coat pattern just isn't my thing, usually.

I do think it's ridiculous that the guy apparently thinks they're bad horses to work with (a horse's coat does not make the temperament). But, whatever, if he wants to lose money by not accepting a color of horse, it's his own loss.

I can understand people not liking a certain breed, but yes, he's losing money, & where I live, the predominant breeds are of course, Quarter Horse, Paint Horses, mostly those two breeds, along with the Walking Horse since it is the state horse. I could send my solid buckskin Paint over there & then at the end tell him he just worked a Paint Horse, ha.

I've worked with many horses, tons of paints, and never had a problem with them.

Quite frankley, he sounds like an uneducated idiot when it comes to horses. I would never bring a horse to him. Just because of that comment.

Just a thought?

Could be that he has a bad reputation in the Paint world, and knows that if he takes in Paints to train, there is higher chance someone will run across someone that knows things about him.

Could be on dodge from losing the ability to show? Or train too?

Matter of fact, now that I think a little more about it? I would be thinking this had something to do with it, he may have gotten suspended from training Paints, and is trying to hide?

That could be true as well - thanks for bringin that fact up. I hadn't really thought of anything like that being the reason of why he wouldnt train them

I know someone who refuses to train horses with one blue eye. She thinks they are psycho.

... I would say, it's probably just a personal bias of that person.

Now I HAVE heard the blue-eyed thing before. I knew a farrier that claimed to charge extra for blue-eyed horses because they "always made him work harder, were dangerous, and acted up more" than others. I think that's hilarious, since my blue-eyed boy is content to plod around or sleep all day if you let him, and is a dream about his feet and everything else. People are strange...

I've actually been kicking around the idea of breeding my AQHA mare to a paint:
