Paint Pride!

Does anyone know what the deal is with Solid-bred Paint horses? Why is it that people ONLY care about color? Theres more to a Paint horse than just color.

I agree. Why do paint, palomino, and etc. horses cost soooo much more!? I mean, you want your horse to be a good one. Color shouldn't matter. Just because it is a pretty color doesn't mean its better....

I hope I am on the same page here!

Re: Paint Pride!

I have a Paint and I most definitely did NOT choose him for his color! I bought him because of his personality and soundness (and he was in my price range ). I'd actually prefer if he wasn't so "Painted" because white is darn difficult to keep clean!!!

Yup, I know exactly where you are coming from Equina! My horse is white! Lol.

I know, becuase I have a Solid-bred Paint and she is wonderful. She has a face marking that looks really neat too so that might be a paint horse charictaristic. But she isn't allowed to compete in some of the APHA Paint horse shows becuase she isn't Overo, Tabiano, or Tovero. It's sad how they exclude the horses if they do not have a pattern.

Thats sad...and you can't even register them in AQHA annoying.

Well she's clearly not a quarter horse. She is a full blooded paint. And like I said before, there is alot more to a paint than color. Some people think they are just quarter horses with pinto markings and this is not true at all the paint horse has a more tougher skeletal structure and they are more agile and sure footed.

Ok heres my question to you, your thread is titled "Paint Pride"---what is a paint with out "paint"? The breed is named for its color, there is nothing diffrent from qh's and our solid paints.

There is nothing wrong w/ solid paints, I just don;t think they should be able to show with a true paint.

Sorry is this sounds harsh, but its the truth.

I agree with Tessa. A Paint is a Paint because he's painted!

Of course, a solid colored Paint is still a wonderful being with all the same qualities as a painted Paint. I just think for purposes such as showing and breeding, there should be a distinction. For example, there are classes at some shows designated for Mares, Geldings, or Studs...and at Paint shows, there are often classes designated for solid color Paints vs. painted Paints.

Please keep in mind that a paint is a QH with marks....and a pinto is a grade horse (or something besides a QH) with marks. Sometimes two painted horses throw a solid color horse but it still has the paint parents, therefore it is a paint, just appears more like a QH then a paint...

Also if they have socks above there knee isn't that not allowed in QH registry, yet allowed in Paints? I think there use to be a post on this...almost a year ago...I will go look for it.
