Most people (even vets) don't know or even care about the difference between a paint and a pinto. If it shows a color pattern, it's a paint, in their way of thinking. My gelding is a paint/Percheron cross with loud pinto coloring (his sire was APHA). My old BO, even knowing that he wasn't full paint, still called him a paint. It really wasn't until recent years that people began to really make the distinction between pinto and paint.
Also, since pinto isn't technically a breed, it's a "color," the vet wouldn't want to put that in the "breed" line of his paperwork. Posted via Mobile Device
