    Looks like a Paint with characteristic, that I can see, mottling on the nose that would indicate an appie but those spots near the flank that are slightly darker and more solid could indicate a blanket pattern. The mane and tail look full which would NOT indicate an appie but that could come from the Paint side. Paintaloosa fits the closest I guess :)

    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...
