    An Appaloosa is a breed same as Paint is a breed. Many horses that have the correct coloring are called Appaloosa just as horses that display the pinto color are called Paints but that is incorrect.

    However, all Paints are Pintos but not all Pintos are Paints. There are breed restrictions for both Paints and Appys as to what breeding can qualify. There are color registrations as well, but a true Appaloosa or Paint must have the proper breeding for the main registry.

    Thanks guys! She is very sweet and really tries and pays attention to what ever you do. I rode her by one of those truck street sweepers! She side stepped and looked at it weird but kept walking, she is nice and sturdy, can't wait to ride the mountain with her sat! Definitely be posting pictures don't worry ;)

    I'm totally jealous!! Are these pics of your riding her in your YARD?!?!?

    She's beautiful! I love appys - any time I had a coloring book as a kid that had horses in it, I'd make the horses either into roans or appys. I haven't seen a roan that was also an appy. I can't tell...did you get an answer as to whether she's also a red roan?

    She's a varnish chestnut with a blanket, not a red roan. The roany look is referred to as varnish and is not caused by the roan gene.

    Not entirely true. My mare is APHA and is solid. There is a specific section in the APHA for solid Paint-bred horses, formerly referred to as Breeding Stock. The horse may still carry the genes for a pattern, but are just very minimally expressed.
