Fox - 10y/o half paint/half foundation quater

This is fox. Really just curious what you guys think. This is her dam Topaz Fox Paint
I can't remember her sires name right now but I will get it. :) fox is my aunts horse and she got her when she was a baby. Paid quite a bit for her. As the story goes, her breeder was going to keep her for her new show project, but health issues got in the way. Again, just the story. Lol so I guess just tell me what you think. Also what her body is suited towards in english and western. :)

Ps: sry for typo in title.

For a better critique, you'll need pictures of her standing square with her head up. Seems like a pretty, well-built mare to me, but without better pictures, no one will really be able to give you any real input.

Also, she is just a Paint, no need to add the QH. It's already implied in the "Paint." =]

i know. She just doesnt look very "paint" so I just always refer to her as quarter. Lol. That why I put it like that. I will get some better pics today. :) new to this.

I've never really understood the difference between Paint and Quarter horse. Arent' they practically the same breed?

Paints are bred from Paints, QH, and TB's. There is obviously something somewhere that started making them colored, but I wouldn't know the answer to that.

Ricci's pedigree - Impressive Raquel Paint

Her line from her sire is primarily QH and some TB. Her line from her dam is primarily Paint and QH.

But if you look at Ricci, you don't really see QH. Gracie is a QH, no doubt about it. But Ricci is long and lean and has the body of an Appendix. So I don't really consider them the same, although you could probably generalize a lot and say that essentially a Paint is a QH with color.

I agree. That why I always just call her quarter. But she is registered paint. So idk. I just don't really call them paints unless they are actually mostly spotted. Fox just has a tiny spot on her side. Counts for breeding and registration, but that's about it.
