He is sure cute ! What a nice attitude to let you put the hula hoop on him ! I would call him a shade of buckskin. He has nice conformation and I would call him a Paint Horse, even though you don't have papers, there are lots of nice purebred horses out there whose papers stayed with the breeders, which some do, if they don't the get the asking price.

Ponypile - That was taken in April, he was still shedding out and the constant cold snaps kept him rather fuzzy :)

FeatheredFeet - as noted in the above post, he was a rescue, I have no idea what my little man is
I guess I'm confused. You say he is a Paint. Paint is a breed, so I assumed you knew something about him. If as a rescue, you know nothing about him, then he is a pinto - a coloured horse of no known background.

Most people around my area(including me) call any stock looking horse a paint if it has pinto markings. I know it's incorrect, and I know my mare is technically just a pinto. But I still call her a paint. If it looks like a stock horse around here, it more than likely is.

Very true its often used the same way around here whether the horse has known paint bred heritage or just a horse with spots. I rarely correct this in person, most people don't know any different and I get what they are saying. In a way it's kinda used like sorrel or chestnut depends on where your at.

Around here a pinto colored horse is called a paint. This paint pony or that paint horse... If its apha it's a registered paint.

A sorrel is a light colored red horse and a chestnut is a dark red horse. That's just small town lingo for ya. If you really wanted to get silly about this areas lingo... A burro is a gelded donkey and a jack is a donkey that hasn't been gelded. You can argue with these old timers over that all day long and when night falls you'll still have not convinced them, no matter how many dictionaries you've pulled out. Lol.

Lol to me a Paint is anything that looks Quarter Horsey and has colored spots and seeing as my little guys has the same head and kind eyes as my last Paint, I matched him using that, because my last was a QH based Paint

All Paints are QH based. Hopefully they get color but sometimes not. We have one of each.

No they're not. Tobiano does not exist within Quarter Horses. Tobiano comes from Spanish horses brought to America by explorers. After years of breeding and then all of the cropout AQHA horses thrown into what became the APHA, yes they are a stock breed with quite a bit of QH lineage, but to say that all Paints are colored QHs is wrong.
