Yeah we just tried the saddle on him (Rocky). My boyfriends grandfather owns him and uses him for harness but he is mostly a pet. We were told that he was western broke and they used to ride him bare back so we thought we would try getting on him.
No he's not registered paint, he could possibly be pinto. I'm not sure.
As for the mare (summer), She is two. We aren't riding her she is still young and her hind end is still a little lower. We are just trying to teach her so she will be ready when the time comes. She is very nice and quiet. The first time I backed her she just stood there like she was ridden before.
She's a cutie, under all that hair!! Her lighter coloring (mealy) on her nose and underside is pretty typical of a bay draft. My bay perch cross has that and looked pretty similar when he was about one. The father looks pretty hefty (his hind legs are solid) in that picture. He might be a draft cross too. Take it easy on the riding. We waited until my gelding was 3 before getting on and really until 4 before starting trail rides. She's little and you don't want to hurt her. Hope you get some warmer weather soon!
