not to go off subject, but isn't paint just a color pattern?

i know it's a breed but is it really a "breed"? as someone mentioned earlier their TB Paint? i've always been a bit confused by this one

No, Paints are either QH's with color or QH/TB or TB with color. Pinto is the color registry.

I honestly think that my paint gelding is a human being!! He acts just like a kid.

My reining bred paint mare was so easy - she is my heart horse. My cowhorse bred paint gelding was a pain, hot-blooded and full of himself... my western pleasure bred mare I just brought home is still a little wary, but very nice and I have really high hopes for her...

I love my mares, they demand a little more respect than the geldings I have owned, but once you have earned their trust you can't go wrong... and with paints, the more pleasure bred quarter horses are apt to be a little more quiet, while the running bred tbs will be a little hotter, but as others have said, every horse is a product of both nature and nurture, and you won't know what you have got until you start working with them... have fun and good luck :)

All I can speak for is my Paint and he is the most laid back, easy going, dare I say lazy, sweetest horse. Lots of personality. Obviously, it truly does depend on the individual horse, but couldn't miss an opportunity to plug the breed. I am very partial to Paints.
