Lets see everyone's Breeder Stock Paints

HI, I have 1 APHA Breeder stock 6 year old Paint gelding. I owned him 3 years ago sold him and just got him back this past Sept. He was trained English while in his other home. I know not much about English. So I am now taking English lessons and loving it. He tests me a lot and is helping me to become a better rider. His name is Ryan's First Jet (aka Prize). The reason for his barn name Prize is I won him as a almost 2 year old from horsecity. I would love to see pictures of everyone elses Breeder stock paints.

This was taking in his other home right before he returned to me.



This was taken the first time out to pasture after returning home.


This is Prize as a 3 yr old right before I sold him, which was a big mistake and he has his forever home here with me this time. Pictured with him is my daughter she is 5' 7.

What a great thread!!! My first horse is a Breeding Stock Paint! I guess a few years ago APHA started calling them "Solid Bred Paints" it seems they are more accepting of these Solid Paints (or as I like to call them, QUARTER HORSES, LOL! Its a loooOOooong story XD)

Anywhoo.. Right now I own two!

The first is Skippy! (in my signature) and Charity. Charity is technically a cheater though. Her mom was purebred AQHA and dad was Pure paint.. Skippy is a purebred paint and turned out solid. Poor fella. I have been rootin for these underdogs for far too long!

I have pictures of them in my "horses" tab above my avatar.. which happens to be a picture of Skippy! LOL!

Skippy is gorgeous..Charity is such a cutie and looks so sweet. I hear you in some circles Breeder Stock or Solid Paints are looked down on. Oh well I am not one that cares to much about that uppity stuff. I just know I love my boy and he is very smart and wants to please. He is a joy.

Oh I wanted to ask how did you get your horses pictures in the tab above your avatar ?

Go up to the top of the web page, Beneith the white text block that shows what thear you're in, there is a light green strip with "User CP" "Horses" "Horse Chat" etc. on it. Click on Horses, then "Visit your barn" and from there you can figure out how to add stuff on your horses =)

Thank you so much for the compliments! Im going to be adding more pictures today of everyone. Your horse is -beautiful- by the way. Breeding Stocks tend to have some very pretty and unique facial markings!

LOL! A lot of Paint Breeders aren't proud of their Breeding Stocks, since obviously they are breeding for the color as much as the conformation ;) I guess they feel like they failed in breeding if the horse comes out solid.

Skippy! Was born out of utter ignorance, in my opinion. His breeder bred a Tobiano to a Overo. Both horses had terrible conformation. One was sorrel, the other black. From my experience with breeding.. Crossing Tobiano with Overo has a SLIM chance of yielding a Tovero or any other color paint.. but the bulk of the crosses turn out completely solid. Sadly, Skippy! Didnt just turn out solid. He also had terrible conformation. He is huge and his feet are so small. He has -very- special needs in the farrier dept. Lol!

My dad is going to breed Skippy!'s mom back when he retires. But he isn't going to breed her to another Paint. Color is the last thing he is looking for. He is going for a stud with a good build to try to negate her crappy-ish one, lol!

More power to us for owning the underdogs of the horse world!

I know you are right about most Paint horse Breeders, but Prize's Breeder was not breeding so much for color as he was for speed. He is a top notch barrel racer him and his wife. Here is a link to Prize's pedigree. There is a cute picture of Prize as a foal there to.

Click here to see his pedigree Ryans First Jet Paint


Prize is my second Breeder Stock. The other one was a mare that we got for my daughter. You know that mare didn't have not even one speck of white on her she was totally solid red and a beauty with great conformation. I will have to post a picture of her to share. : )

How do you post a picture? I'm still new to this whole thing. Hahaha
Anyway, I have a 4 year old bs paint mare; "Darlin" is a solid sorrel with a thin white blaze. We ride her western. I use her for barrels and have started to use her as a heeling and breakaway horse. I have pictures of her in my "horses" if you want to take a look. Although I'd like to know how to post pictures! Very pretty horses all of you! And BrokenSpur I like your signature! Lol I have the same one. Churchill was obviously a very smart man! :)

Thanks randikay215. Your Darlin is a doll baby.

To post pictures do you have a photobucket ? That is how I posted. Photobucket is free. You load your pictures in your albums at photobucket then you can copy and paste the link here by clicking on the icon that looks like mountains on a stamp and walla they show up in your post. Hope I explained it well enough I am not very good at typing out directions.
