Can any horse with color at all (regardless of breed, breed mixture, or grade status) be registered pinto?
those of you how show Pinto congress, world, etc., do you show with and against otherwise grade horses and horses of all breeds?
I posted a thread about Pintabians before under Breeds - they are 99% Arabian, the rest paint - do they qualify as Pintos in addition to their Pintabian registry?
I have a palomino gelding who is qh/morgan - he is registered with a palomino registry, which is strictly a color registry - is Pinto the same kind of thing?
lets see how we go here....
1) YES your boy would be eligible for pinto as he has a lot of white and he is reg registry paint.
2) you would be able to stand him at stud for a whole nother breed - more money in your pocket. You would have a wider range of shows to take him to and this would mean more recognition for him.
Any coloured horse can be registered as a Pinto as long as they meet the colour requirments
No you do not show against different TYPE but yes they may be grade - they have different catagories, your horse would show in the STOCK horse type classes.
the Pintabians are eligible for Pinto again if they meet colour requirements
YES Pinto and Palomino are the same type of registry.
Someone also asked about Paints and Pinto shows - they BOTH have a world, congress and normal circuit.
hope this helps.
