Paint or Appy?


I posted earlier but had computer problems and it posted 5 times! Hopefully this one works!

Anyway - this is my new horse. She's not registered and I don't know anything about her breeding. Would you call her a paint or an appaloosa? She has slera around her eyes, freckles on her lips, and spots inside some of her patches.

Is there any registry that she could belong to?

Thank you!

She's a pintaloosa. The Appy registry and the Paint registry won't touch her. The pinto registry might.

Thank you. Is Pintaloosa a color pattern or a breed? I've seen horses for sale called "Pintaloosas" and not sure if they are grade horses or if it's a specific breed (since pinto is not a breed).

It's definitely not a breed. It is a colour pattern. All it means is that the horse has appaloosa characteristics (spots, roaning, scelera, mottled skin and striped hooves in this case) and pinto markings too.

There are Pintalooosa Horse Registries. Google it. One day it might be a recognized and legitimate breed but right now it's technically considered a Grade horse.

The Pinto Registry will not register any horse that has Appaloosa characteristics.

Pretty horse.

Thanks, I might look into it just for the heck of it. I did read that the pintaloosa color pattern is one of the more difficult ones to achieve/end up with, so I'm not sure if she was an accident or if she was bred to have both characteristics. Probably accident! Lol! But I like her, she's different.

Very cool! I say the flashier the better.

Thanks Trailhorserider! I see that your Isabelle is a MFT! Some have said my mare might be part TWH. She's a mystery, but nice to ride and look at!

Neat looking mare!!! I had a pintaloosa, but it wasn't near as pretty as yours and had conformation that belonged down the toilet, lol!!! Congrats on your new horse!!!
