So since we have been talking about thoroughbreds lately I wanted to know your opinion on this. I was originally looking at stuff because the whole white thoroughbred stuff was peeking my interest and I found this http://www.whitehorseproductions.com/pintotbs.html
Supposedly pinto thoroughbreds exist but they aren't sure if its pure. They think that there could be another breed mixed into it somewhere, it doesn't surprise me though :roll: what do you guys think?
Wow - beautiful horses! I'm a huge fan of pintos, but pinto-thoroughbreds makes them better!
However, it does concern me a bit.
Are they really "pure"? How could you get the gene in them without added a paint?
Some of those Thoroughbreds you posted didn't really look like full Thoroughbreds, though. Nothing against you, because it was a site. I'm just kinda pointing it out.
Well I know everything on that website is trustworthy, the girl that made it is crazy smart about the color genetic stuff. I never paid attention in biology so it all confuses me...
I just looked them up and all of the horses on that page are Jockey Club registered (and two of them raced that I know of, Tri Chrome and Ellusive Quest). The Jockey Club is pretty strict so there's no reason for me to believe they're not purebreds. They're probably just becoming more common now because people are breeding them specifically for their color. Same with the white Thoroughbreds.
Pinto throughbreds are common? From what I understood they were mainly solid colors or bays.....i'm confuzzled lol. I thought this would be a rare occasion to see a pinto throughbred. Where do they have them? Because I want one.
