Question Is A Paint/Arab A Warmblood or Hot-Blood?

I have a arab/paint mare, who is registered as a Arabian crossbreed. I was wondering if she would be a warm-blood or a hot-blood? I know Arabian is hot blood. I think ( not positive) Paints are warm blooded. Sp what would she be? A cross?

Warmbloods (if you are talking breeds) are their own set sector of breeds now. Though they originated from mixing a "hot blood" (e.g. Thoroughbred) with a "cold blood" (e.g. Draft), a mix of the two does not create a Warmblood nowadays. Warmbloods have to themselves their own breed category, just like Draft breeds.

If you're not talking about breed sets, then Arabs are considered "hot bloods." I'm not sure what stock horses are considered to be... Interesting question.

I'm pretty sure stock breeds fall under the "cold-blood" Draft side. But other than, what JDI said.

If she's a registered Arabian crossbreed, I would call her a hot blood cross, but honestly that's just my opinion and may not be correct. There is confusion over the term 'Warmblood' Warmblood could refer to specific warmblood breeds such as Dutch Warmbloods, Oldenburgs, Holsteiners etc, or it could mean any horse that isn't a hot blood (ex: Arabian) or a cold blood (ex: Clydesdale). I tend to only use Warmblood when referring to the specific breeds, and call a horse that isn't hot or cold blooded by its specific breed.

Stock horses are tech. Considered warm I would say your horse is a hot blood simply because she is arab mix.

Nope. Stock horse breeds on the whole have some Arabian ancestry, and a fair to large amount of Thoroughbred ancestry, both of which are considered hot-blooded-- so if you are using "warmblood- ie a mixture of hotblood and coldblood" (rather than "Warmblood- ie a group of established sport type breeds") the stock breeds are a warm blood mix.
