    What breed?

    So this is the horse I picked up for a decent penny back in Nov. Now lookig back on it I definitely overpayed alot. But, needless to say I love this horse even with his flaws/issues. I know alot of you are probably going to say he's a Qh/Appaloosa/paint type. Just wanted everyones opinion though! I was told he's a paint. Whenever someone asks me what kind of horse he is I say paint-Qh type thing. Lol. He does have a paint spot under his belly that you can only see when he's wet or sweaty and he has a bald face, pink lips, blue eyes. He's also getting flea bitten and has random Appaloosa like spots around his body. And on his hocks he has gray that is slowly disappearing.

    Paint is a breed and if he were so, you would have received his registration papers. Really, he could have several breeds in his background. He's a nice sturdy boy. Is he aged?

    I was under the understanding "paint" was a color thing. That's registered, paint walkers, paint QH, etc... Where as anything unregistered is pinto? Known as the APHA American paint horse association. Hence some horses being double registered.

    Maybe I'm wrong. It's happened

    I've had a farrier say he has 'Appaloosa feet'.

    If the farrier meant his feet are striped... Other breeds can display that as well.

    As far as Paint/Pinto... Paint is a breed, Pinto is the coloring. Other breeds with Paint markings register as "Pinto" with the appropriate breed (Half Arab, TWHA, ASHA etc.) they can also be registered in the Pinto association (yup, there is one). Some breed registries are now also accepting the genetic pattern descriptor as well as or instead of Pinto (Tobiano, Overo, Splash White, Sabino White etc. )

    This horse here looks pretty QH to me, and grey could be behind his odd spots as greys do sometimes get them, even if there is no Appy blood.

    His feet aren't striped so not sure what the farrier meant.

    The easy way to understand the Paint/Pinto thing, is to remember that a Paint is a breed, just like Arabian, Thoroughbred etc. ie. A horse registered with a breed registry and with a pedigree known and recorded for generations.

    Just as (for example) an obvious Arabian without papers, lost registration or with background unknown, he/she would be considered a 'grade'. If it were a spotted/coloured horse, it would be known as a pinto.

    As TLU said, there is now an association for pinto coloured horses but they can be of any breed where spotting is known. Ie. Miniature Horses, Gypsy Horses etc.

    I imagine the vet said he had Appy feet, because they were large and good, rather than a colour maybe?

    He looks older than 12. Maybe it's because of his knees and general appearance. But what does it matter. He looks like a nice, kind fellow. He looks well fed and loved. Who cares what he is.
