I don't really know what the difference is between QHs and Paints in Aus, but here, there is very little difference between the 2 breeds other than the coloring. It is virtually impossible to tell a solid paint from a QH or a colored QH from a paint because their conformation is so similar.

Eolith, I am not intimately familiar with too many of the big name horses anymore much past what I can see on videos and they very seldom have good pictures to judge bone size with so I couldn't really suggest which lines might have better substance. All I can say for sure is that it's usually the performance bred horses.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

there isnt much difference over here either, I just thought that because theyre both reasonably solid.

hi I love quarterhorse crosses, I think they are calm enough for average rider to be very confident on, and depending what they are crossed with, can be athletic enough to do just about anything.

My former Qh/TB competed to 2** eventing even wining the national series in the process. I had him from a completly greenbroke 4yr old to to 2**, we also did showjumping, hunters, dressage, and everything in between, mostly galloping across the paddock bareback in a halter.

Most of the crosses I have come across have been like him, great temperment, athletic to do anything with to a good level. Always come down to the individual horse though

I agree! A Quarab came into my new barn the same day I did. He is so sweet and goofy. He's old, has cushings, and is just an old trail puff. Ever since his owner installed his stall gate (I switched stalls with them so he could have a bigger stall close to the fan) he has poked his fuzzy face out and demands attention. He's always talking, too. I love his sweet face!! :) He pins his ears and reaches out as far as he can to a horse if you walk it by, but he doesn't try to bite, he just wants to nag and annoy. He's right next to Savanna and she's learned to ignore him :roll: He is such a cutie.

There can be pinto QHs that aren't considered Paints? I knew there could be solid paints but pinto QHs?

Yes, sometimes 2 regular QHs will throw a crop-out baby that has pinto coloring and due to the new AQHA rules, they are exempted from the white rule once parentage is verified via DNA and can be registered AQHA. I'm not sure which one of the pinto patterns it is exactly that springs up, but it is the same one that is responsible for facial and leg markings.

I think the great thing about QH is how willing to learn they are.
For example my QH started off w/t/c small fence and that was 7 months ago now we are showing in all kinds of classes and doing quit well!
QH are really easy to teach because 90% just want to learn and please you! :)

Bottom line they are one of my favorite breeds

I like the Quarabs as they still have the finess of an arab and not the chunkiness of a QH. Apparently they can be quiet good jumpers as well
