I love this thread!! So many amazing horses. I'm obsessed with paints!
PaintHorseMares, oh my gosh, I am in love with your gorgeous herd!! Buckshot is SO cute!
JCnGrace, I love the markings on TJ and Thunder!
smsrob, Talyn is not fugly!! She's adorable!
Oldhorselady, WOW, your mare is beautiful! I can totally see her as the star of a native American painting :p
Whisper, that mother-son picture is adorable!! Couple of cuties you got there!
This is my baby boy, Sam! Not everyone seems to think he's as gorgeous as his mama does (I've heard "He's cute for a medicine hat" and "He's nice if you like that coloring") but I think he's a real looker
After seeing all these beautiful and flashy paints I feel almost ashamed to post mine. Any way this is my 5-10,rough guess by me and the vet, gelding Salvador. He is a rescue with the usual unknown breeding but probably has Arab in him because of his high tail carriage when he runs. He is a grulla with zebra markings and an eel stripe, the spot you see on his side is the only sign of him being a paint.
This is my middle sister's paint gelding, Wanna Bet. He is nine years old and was once a barrel racer, however an injury as a seven year old he suffered a career ending injury. My sister raised him from the time his dam died when he was a week old. So when she heard that he would never be able to be ridden again and he should be put down, she nursed him back to health. He is now giving lessons to beginners at a walk and trot.
