    My first Horse!

    On Thursday morning, the women who's horses I was riding called me (waking me up lol) asking if I new of anyone who would take her two older horses. When I asked why she told me she had to sell all her animals due family issues. I called around to the barns I know asking if anyone needed lesson horses but all came back as I no :( However she also had a 6 year old, who I had ridden a few times. I asked about his price, and if I was able to pay in small seperate amounts. I was so I offerd to take him if I could work something out with my barn. Luckily I could, as it was one of those "take him now or he's going to someone else" moments. So Friday morning we picked up Cody to take him to his new home :)

    I was told he was a "breed stock paint" which i'v persinally never heard that term before, but I deffinently don't know everything. What makes me wonder is when he trots and lops he moves like an arabian. I'v had a few people mention it aswell. I'll have to get a video soon to show you guys :)

    Anyways!! Here's Cody:


    This is Cody at his old home:



    And here he is at our new home :) sorry for the small size and not so good quality. Its a picture from my cell phone. I havn't gotten the camera out to him yet lol

    Is he registered? Breeding stock paint would mean he has paint lines but no markings. Or else perhaps he carries the gene for patterns but never recieved them himself.
    I had a filly who was registered as a breeding stock Pinto, because she had no pattern markings. Basically you wont be able to enter him in all Paint competitions & of course because he's cut he can't breed either.
    Very handsome horse, though.

    He's cute! I have a Breeding Stock Paint too. She's half-QH, so she ended up looking exactly like her overo dam, but with all of the spots filled in. I plan on testing her for Overo (OLWS anyway) eventually out of curiosity.

    Is he registered with the APHA?

    The APHA changed it so you can enter pretty much everything, but I think they have classes specifically for them. They also changed the term from Breeding Stock Paint to Solid Paint-Bred Horse.

    I'm not to sure actually. I know she bought him from the you.S for 2500 but that's all I really know of his past. I'd imagine he is, he apparently did some cattle work to before she got him. I havn't asked her to much because everytime she calls me she's almost in tears so I don't ask to many questions.....

    I'm not really looking to show in big shows or classified breed shows or anything. Just small shows in the area... maybe in the future we'll move to bigger better things but right now were just taking it as it comes. He's such a good boy :)

    I don't know why... but for somereason I have this feeling we were ment to end up together... just so many things just kinda happend and fell into place and it ended up with me owning him. It all happend to quick. Ha. I hope I can make it work for us both. Iv had multiple people tell me he has alot of potencial.

    If he's a breed stalk paint does that mean he can have other breeds in him to? Just wondering why he those nice arabian movements
