Since Paint is a breed, it should be capitalized. Since pinto is a color, it shouldn't be.

Btw, how come breeds like Clydesdale and Appaloosa appear correct in spellcheck, but Paso Fino comes up as incorrect?

I dunno about one being capitalizable, and the other not...

There is pinto the color, and Pinto, the registry..... and so it would follow, there are registered Pintos...

And, according to some of the old timers and not-so-old-timers in the horse business in various locations, particularly to the West, there is Paint the breed and paint the color....

Oooh it's all so confusing! Hahahaha

Painted horses, whether pintos or paints, are fantastic either way... right? ;)

I hate to be so picky but again pinto is NOT a color!! A color would be black, bay, chestnut etc. Pinto is a generic term to describe a MARKING of a horse that is not Paint. :)

AND Pinto is also the name of a registry (Pinto Horse Assoc- PtHA) that was formed in the 1930s as the Pinto Horse Society, than incorporated in 1956 as the Pinto horse Association (either way, several years before APHA) to register and keep pedigrees and records of specific types of pinto-colored horses and their relatives .

Something to ponder:

Palomino is a coloring, not a breed, and we still capitalize that

Then what are QH's that have the coloring of your typical Paint horse?
