I'm not disagreeing with you Sunny, but there is in fact a recognized Palomino Registry, and it's been around for quite awhile.
There's also the Paint Horse Registry, although I don't think pintos have their own registry yet. I could be wrong about that one, though.
Appaloosas are both a color breed and an actual breed, with recognizable breed characteristics.
It's all confusing as heck, which is why I stick with recognizable
breeds such as Arabians (3,000 years of bloodlines) and TBs.
