Paints and Pintos

Alright, so in my companion animal science class we learned the differece between paints and pintos was that a Paint had to be Half Quarter Horse and that a Pinto was just random cross breeding. What have you learned?!

So paint can be.

Quarter Horse x
Thoroughbred x

Same with an Appy. A horse Below 15hh is Classifed as a Paluse pony.
And 15hh + is classifed as an Appaloosa

Im not sure if I got the Heights Right tho
Well I have learnt that in the last few days 'appaloosa thing'

Our familys Friends Are Paint and Quarter Horse Breeder's.
And they taught me that.

You can have Solid Appaloosa's which are Classifed are Quarter Horses.
Then Coloured Apploosa's are Classifed as Appaloosas. Does that make a tiny bit of sence

Coach is an Apploosa x Quarter Horse.
But he is a Regestered Apploosa.
For his Colour.
His colour being a Bay with a spotty Blanket oo so pretty.

Hopefully I made some sence

Hehe, Love holly x x x x

A Paint horse, in order to be registered, can have both parents be registered APHA paints, or one parent registered APHA. If only one parent is APHA, the other parent has to be a "stock breed," AQHA, or Jockey Club registered TB.

A Pinto horse, in order to be registered as a Pinto, simply has to have the markings, Despite that, most people consider pintos to be anything that has the markings but is NOT eligible to be registered APHA as a paint.

Appies can not be registered AQHA, even if they are just breeding stock (not colored). Neither can paints. But, if a horse who has two parents registered AQHA were to somehow pop out with appy markings or some white, he could be registered as an appy or a paint as appropriate. It was only a year or two ago that a horse who did happen to be born with some white between his nose and his knees can be registered AQHA. Prior to the new rule, they were out of luck even if both parents were registered.

Cowpuncher beat me to it ;;

I remember asking the great Pinto/Paint question when I was younger and first getting into horses at the feeble age of 10..

I was so stupid, I thought that Paints were white horses with colored spots.. and I thought that Pintos were colored horses with white spots. Nice huh? LOL

But yes, Cowpuncher hit the nail on the head. Paint Horses are my passion, I grew up with, raised and trained many many many APHA and AQHA horses. Fine, fine breeds! I can't get enough of them!

Fun fact.. in the TWH world.. they call paint/pinto horses "Spotted". It always confused me, because when someone would tell me to go get the spotted horse out of the barn.. I would say "I don't see an App :/" They have a Spotted Saddle Horse registry too :) I wonder what TWH people call App horses then... dotted? Lol
