Pinto is just a color...any breed can be a pinto. The horse I posted earlier is an Oldenburg.
though you are very right sara, the majority of the pintos are paint with double registry. That's what my mare is!! And paint don't have to have quarter horse ansitery its is technically paint lines which dates back to quarters and grade horses!
Well I don't like one more than the other, they are both beautiful. But there is a horse where I ride who is mostly a paint with Selle Franc.(dont know how to spell it lol) and I think some hannoverian. Anywho she is goregous and if you didnt know it she looks like she is just a paint. She is very talented and very smooth.
I actually prefer to show in pinto only because of the judging, it seems you can have more white on your horse and not get killed by the judges since most are quarter horse judges.
OMG I know!!! I have a tobiano and get KILLED by paint judges!!!! And pinto I am 3rd in the nation and won 8 congress championships and was hi point jr. Youth with a tobiano!! Well technically she's a tovero!! Oh well!!
