pinto thoroughbreds!?!

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

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, I think they are really pretty. I don't know about pure though...I've never seen a paint tb race...

Actually, I do remember seeing a racing tb that had very high and 'jagged' stockings on his legs and an unusual face blaze.

Other than that, I have no idea of these horse's purity.

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.

I agree with Cheval...some of the horses didn't look like 'pure thoroughbreds'.

I dug a little deeper and some other pinto tb sites have Jockey Clud registered pinto tb's. If they are registered, perhaps they are pure?

I don't know...pretty horses though. I wouldn't mind owning one.

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.

Gorgeous! Wow!

No horse is "pure" though.

Thats intresting. I had never heard of a pinto tb before. Im not big on genetics but I guess the pinto gene in a paint horse has to come from some where.

Yea i'm wondering if it has some mixture or if somebody did something to make them like that. Although I think they are very pretty I wish I could have one though lol.

I am in australia and I have 2 paint mares that are registered tb's - they just also have enough white for paint rego. It is more common then you may think

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.
