    Paint Topic

    I have a Gelding, I don't have his papers because I don't know where there are...
    Most paints are crossed with another breed, so what I have been told. My Gelding is 16hh, 17 years old and I haven't had him more then 6 months. He put his tail and head and prances just like an Arabian. But he also reminds me of a TB too, so I don't know.. If he is TB paint or Arabian, I barely dealt with cross breeds.

    Anyone else had or have paints?

    In order to be registered with APHA, the horse's sire and dam must be registered with APHA, AQHA, or the Jockey Club. Thus, both parents must be registered Paint, or one parent must be registered Paint while the other is either registered QH or registered TB.

    Yeah I know if I knew where the papers were it would help a lot. The jockey club never heard of it.

    You got a paint horse?

    The Jockey Club is the organization that registers TBs.

    I have 3 Paints. All mares.

    Cool, I'll look it up later.
    I have 3 paint 2 mares and one gelding. My mare Jody someone said" she looks like a short abarain." I just laughed, you can see her on my profile, she is a solid paint. Great barrel racer but she green broke.
    So what are you paint like? After all it's paint topic.

    Cowgirl, I think you are using the term "paint" in the generic sense-- to refer to the color of the horse? The confusion is arising because there is a formal breed called a Paint which has limited bloodlines, and most people involved in the stock horse breeds don't call a horse a Paint unless they are referring to that specific breed-- but I know that the generic term "paint" IS still being used to refer to color only by some people as well.

    Its true, the color patterns generically called "paint" or "pinto" can occur on just about any combination of breeds. The American Paint Horse registry however has specific bloodline requirments-- a Paint horse (notice the capital P) will not have other breeds besides Paint, Quarter Horse, or Thoroughbred in its pedigree.

    There is also a Pinto registry which will register horses with these spotted patterns but with a much more wide variety of bloodlines. The Pinto horse Association still has a list of approved breeds and still requires both parents be registered to register a Pinto stallion, but they do allow mares and geldings with the accepted color to be registered Pintos even if they have unknown pedigrees.

    Hope that helps!

    Also , please post pics of your horses if possible!

    My mare I have is a paint, she is registered as one. I have her papers when I got her.

    My gelding I have a photo in my profile. I got him a few moths got he is sorrel and white, mostly white. He is the color of a "Paint" but I don't know his blood lines.

    I have a Paint x Hanoverian.
    Just a note: Paint doesn't mean the same thing as Pinto
    Paint is a breed
    Pinto is a color/pattern

    OK, I was just making a simple explanations, because in your original post you said you thought he might be crossed with an Arabian-- and if he is an APHA registered Paint, that is not possible.

    Can you post his registered name, and maybe some photos? There are several of us who love to dig into bloodlines/pedigrees, and you might get some interesting input on what ancestors he got his looks from!
