    Good point.
    I think some colors are more expensive than others, because they 'look' better.
    But I agree-color doesn't make a horse, it's all about the personality!!

    Ok I am sorry but there is ALOT of difference between a Paint and a Quarter Horse. ALOT! And I think it's unfair that Janie can't show with Paint horses with a patturn even though she has color everywhere exept on her stomach.

    I'm sure that some with NO white shouldn't be allowed to show, but Come on my paint, and I'm sure many others resemble paints in alot of ways.

    Is there white on her back? Haunches? Neck? If she has color in these places (behind the head and above the legs not including mane/tail), she fits the color requirements of the APHA.

    I've tried to do a little research on whether a Paint is "just a QH with color" or not. I've heard that from my Farrier (and others) as well as barnrat. In the "History of the Breed" on the APHA website, it says it was started out with stock-type horses with color (to make the American Paint Stock Horse Association - APSHA). There was also the beginnings of an American Paint Quarter Horse Association. The two merged in 1965 to create today's APHA.

    So, it seems to me that a Paint isn't necessarily a "QH with color" but a "stock horse with color." My Paint, for example, has bloodlines of many QH, TB, and just one line of Paints. But he's surely painted and registered APHA.

    Nobody thinks they look they look better, but the color is what defines the breed. ---think about it this way also qh crop outs (with too much white) cannot be shown in qh shows either.

    There is nothing wrong w/ a solid paint, but I don't think they should be able to show with regular paints.

    Tobianos and other patterns of paints define the breed!

    I acually think Tabianos are uglier than overos and solids.

    I also think that it is stupid this so called Paint horse I seen was a full registerd paint horse but she had a dot about the size of a quarter on her side, and she had NO other white but she was conciderd a paint becuase it was on her stomach and she didn't have any white on her face or legs. Yet Janie is a solid bred and can't show even though she has a Paint horse genetic dorsal, white and cream on her 'arm pits' udder in her ears backs of her legs, her belly, white hooves, and a funky paint related blaze on her face with lips.

    I was on the APHA website and found this.

    A good horse is a good horse, regardless of its color. And while color can be a major asset, a lack of color does not limit your opportunity for success with the American Paint Horse Association (APHA). Not all foals will have flashy color patterns, but APHA’s wide array of programs are open to all APHA-registered
    Horses.

    When you register your solid Paint-Bred (formerly referred to as Breeding Stock) horse and join APHA, you not only become a member of the family of American Paint Horse owners, you join an organization dedicated to providing members with excellent
    Programs and services, and you have opportunities to earn points and
    Recognition through competitive and leisure activities.

    Go give it a looksie.
