Oxer, he could be registered as pinto, but not Paint. Technically, he would only be a pinto even though he is half-Paint.

I don't know her pedigree. She's just a mix, I guess. We bought her, or should I say rescued her. You could count every bone she had! I've been told she has a quarter horse profile, but like I said....she sort of has a gait, but I don't really care if it comes out, not going to show her anyway. Someone around here said one time that she'd make a fine western horse, which that's what I'm working on

Wow lots of great information! Thanks everyone!!
He's (as far as we know) Paint and Rheinland Pfalz-saar. Neither breed I know anything about. His left eye is about 1/2 blue which was also something I had never seen until I bought him.

Saddlebreds and other breeds can exhibit that color pattern but that doesn't mean they are a paint because they are not quarter horses. Its slightly confusing but hopefully that helps a little. :)
I haven't read this entire thread so sorry if I am repeating what you have already been told. A paint horse is a breed. They have lineage that is traceable and all registered horses. Yes, the APHA horse can have AQHA and TB lines in it but can not be bred to any other breed and still be registered a paint.

Pinto is a color registry. You can have a horse that is registered pinto and not be a paint but you can have a paint and have it registered APHA and PtHa.

I found this post and your first post to be confusing. A paint is not a quarter horse if it were it would be AQHA NOT APHA.

^ I think what she means is that if she's a quarter horse x paint and inherited pinto markings, she is a "paint".

*edit* I just re-read what she said, and like I said I THINK that's what she ment.

if it is a AQHA and APHA cross it is a paint regardless of pinto markings. If it had not gotten pinto markings it would have been a breeding stock paint.

Paint and quarter horses are both a breed of stock horses. A pinto horse is a horse of any breed with pinto markings.

That's true. A breeding stock Paint can't be a pinto.

Quarter Horses, Paints, and even Apps are considered stock breeds. They will have a good deal of profile similarities which is why when you look at a Paint, you see Quarter Horse. Many people refer to the Paint as a Quarter Horse with spots.

Po that is why I said "can be" and not "are."
