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.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

She side stepped and looked at it weird but kept walking, she is nice and sturdy, cant wait to ride the mountain with her sat! Definitly be posting pictures dont worry ;)

She's very pretty!

My old Appy looked fantastic in lime green.

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.
