    A pinto is a color and a paint is a breed. A paint can be a pinto but a pinto can not necisarialy be a paint but it could.

    I understand the difference between the paint and the pinto. What I didn't understand is how someone sees "pinto" in a picture. If a pinto is a horse that's not registered as a Paint, TB, QH, Arab, etc. then what do you look for to call it pinto?

    I know the rules have changed over the years, guess I'm just not up to speed.

    A pinto horse can be registered. Look at the 2012 Pinto World Champion reining horse. That horse is a reg paint horse who has enough white markings to be reg as a pinto with that association

    It's "pinto" due the coloring... I.e. The tobiano causing the body white and high leg white. Tobiano is one of the pinto patterns.

    Thanks nrhareiner for trying to clarify for me. I have a registered pinto we purchased as a 2 yr old but she is mostly white with the pink pigmentation.

    Sorry SpiritLifter, didn't mean to hijack your post, just trying to learn a little bit more. With that being said, we had a palomino paint in our barn too, she was beautiful. The same color as the one you had pictured just a different build.

    No worries kctop. I was actually enjoying the way the thread was clarifying so many things. It's still confusing. How can she be a Pali with pinto markings? I don't see any Pali at all since I don't see golden or flaxen anything. I just see white with some weird putty color as markings. Is it Pali because a Pali carries a creme gene?

    Palominos can be pinto. So can roan, dun, buckskin, grey, anything really to my knowledge. Pinto is a pattern, not a colour. The palomino is the colour, the pinto is the pattern/markings.

    As for not seeing the colour, in the photo she definitely looks pali. Have you got any other pics in daylight? As for pali, it ranges in different shades. Really pale beige to very dark gold. Palomino - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia That shows some different shades, also try google images and you'll see all the different shades.

    As for cream genes, I have no idea I'm not very good with genetics Hope I've made sense and not just confused you even more

    Okay. I'll take a daytime pic. I think therein lies the confusion. Her mane and tail are bleach white. Now what?

    Yes, they can have white manes and tails too. Like I said, there are lots of different shades. Do a google images search and you'll see :)
