my paint/draft gelding has stripes?

Hi! I am a new horse owner and our first horse is a 7 year old gelding and we are told he is a painted/draft cross? I noticed he has these really cool stripes on his legs and a few other places. I was wondering if anyone knew where these stripes could come from? Or maybe someone thinks he looks like he is a different cross then a paint/draft? He is an awesome horse and we've had him for about 6 months now! I'm just very curious what some experienced horse owners thought by looking at some of his pictures! If you have any ideas I would really appreciate it, thanks

Looks like a grulla pinto to me. Those stripes are called leg barring or a type of primative marking found in duns and grulla's. Lucky ;) I love grulla's & your boy is handsome.

I'm not sure about the stripes but he looks draft to me and considering his color I would say he probably is a draft/paint.

Like lilruffian said, it's a dun factor. Since he had no color on his back you couldn't see a dorsal stripe, which is another factor.

He would be A dark grullo tobiano

I definitely see the draft part, I don't think grullo is common in paints, he could be part-paint or a diff breed that was tobiano, but probably paint

It's a dun factor. I have a couple of grulla mares and both have striping on their legs, barring over their withers and spiderwebbing in their faces. I breed quarters, but LOVE a grulla/white paint! What a cute boy!

You can get a grulla Paint just as easily as you can get a grulla Quarter Horse. It's not a very commonly seen colour, but entirely possible.

He's a good looking boy and I also agree with the consensus that he's a grullo pinto.
