So glad you are keeping him and hope he is already gelded, so he doesn't breed his dam.

I'm sorry, this post just confuses me a bit
Paints are all of QH and TB breeding and carry Tobiano so how does it come about if QH and TB on their own cannot carry it?? Just a question.
The colt himself of course is a Pinto no matter due to his dam

Because Paints are not just "QH or TB with extra white", they are a separate breed. The presence of the tobiano gene proves that some other breeds are part of the Paint history. QHs and TBs definitely don't have it.

It was a hard choice, but given our current financial capabilities and the fact that we want him to have a happy/fun life of running around with everybody else out in the pasture, we gelded him back in oct.

On a separate note, a few months ago we ran across these two on a facebook auction house page. Mare and baby just like ours. IIRC they both went to a good home.

DraftGuy...I've not a clue what he is. All I know is, if he goes missing, he's not in NW NJ with me so no need to bother looking there. K?

Thank you...

Here is a video I made of him and mama. He is long since weaned and we're now introducing him slowly to the main pasture with the rest of the adults. This was his first day out with them.

Definitely paintXpercheron. Doesn't have enough bone to have more than 50% draft. The mare is very nice. Definitely full Percheron and most likely raised by a draft person (the docked tail). I would suggest finding some Percheron people in the state and see if they can be of any help. There are a few in NC but I don't think they have a state draft horse association. Ga does and there are a few good breeders. I would also check her for a microchip if possible as a lot of PMU foals made it down to the Ga area. ( If she's in the 7-9 year range especially)

If you are at all interested in registering the foal, he can be registered in the Pinto Draft Registry as a 1/2 draft grade on his coloring alone. The Spotted Draft Association is not an option as they have a closed studbook at this time.

Thanks guys...

I may look into registering him. I never really thought about it to be honest. Is there any benefit to registering other than a higher sale price? I never plan on selling him or the mare so higher sale price isn't a factor.

This question is a off topic, but what kind of blanket do you have on him? I've been looking for a lime green blanket for my guy for ages, lol!
