It is not offensive at all, however the correct term would be Pintaloosa - not Paintaloosa. Paintaloosa would be appropriate if the Pinto or Paint parent were known to be a Paint - otherwise it should be assumed the Pinto or Paint parent is a Pinto.
And there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with using terms like Pintaloos or Morab or Araloosa. They are not breed names, and are not intended to be breed names - they merely identify the type of cross they are. When you way Araloosa, people automatically know what your grade horse is - an Arab/Appy cross...
