Paint horse breeders nowadays..
I own a breeding stock paint filly, and I work with various other paints, and I have come to the conclusion that the Paint world is getting ruined by breeding for color. So many loud colored horses I see were just bred for color, so they are not the best quality horse otherwise. My filly was bred from a solid stallion (well, Palimino, so he's registered overo because of pink skin on this mane and tail) and an overo mare, she was not bred for color at all, and she is a fantastic horse, nice conformation, sturdy little attractive filly. A gelding I have in training is a super loud overo gelding bred for color, he has a nice body, but his hocks and stifles are crap, tiny little 00 feet, and super base narrow, he was bred to be a loud colored horse, and the quality of him suffered because of that. I guess this post is just kind of a rant, but it really upsets me to see APHA and PtHA kind of pushing this also, I understand why they have color and breeding stock registries to preserve the color, but it's starting to turn me off from the color breeds.
