Didn't think you were a fool. Most people don't know that "tri-color" doesn't describe what they think it does. Just trying to educate.

As I said, though, I wouldn't be surprised if he was a draft cross.

Dezisa...We have a 15.1 hand Paint gelding. He has a very "solid body" and incredibly stout legs and a large but pretty head. We have to get him x-large in a halter. We figure if he were 16 hands he would be better proportioned.
But he is a Paint (bay and white overo). And an amazing loveable and agreeable soul.

I wasn't referring to you:) I just was looking it up and saw the thing about people being fools...

I was like wow really so just because people haven't learned every single thing about horses they are fools..

I appreciated the info from you and I love learning new things!!

I learn new things everyday and I soak up every single little bit of info I hear!!

He may just be a paint but we are not sure we didn't get much info on him, only what the person who rescued him in the first place knew.

He has a very sweet temperment but is very cautious of everyone. We believed he was harshly abused before his last owners. He is very scared of feet and goes to bucking as soon as you lift your foot to put it in the stirrup. We just barely touched him with the toe of a boot on his leg and he about jumped out of his skin!!

So we are figuring he had the crap kicked out of him!! We are working on trust with him as of right now, as soon as it warms up and we can get an exercise corral up we are gonna start desensitizing him to feet and boots!!

If we end up not being able to do much with him we think at 18 he has earned the right to be a companion horse:) But we will not know until the work begins!!

I'd love to see a good pic of him, standing four-square, profile and on level ground. He might or might not, have draft in him. He could be just a chunky pinto. Remember Paint is a breed, pinto is just a colour and can be described of any breed or crosses, when the colour is seen.

If he displays any feather other than small tufts, then he might have draft in him. If not, he likely does not.

Certainly, even at his age, he does NOT have to be just a pasture ornament. Don't even attempt to ride him. Spend the next six months, doing his ground work. Get Clint Anderson's videos on how to do groundwork. Or watch them on TV. Only when he is absolutely solid, in his groundwork, can you start putting something small like a blanket on his back and slowly, go from there. He's not an old horse. Forget that he has or might have been abused. Don't make that excuse for him. Start from scratch as though he were a colt who had never been handled. I am quite sure you could end up with a nice riding horse.

Maybe its a regional thing cause around here what you posted are called chimeras and if someone says they have a tri-colored one would expect a bay or buckskin pinto. Probably like flaxen chestnut/sorrel - more regional terms.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
