    Both of her parents are registered paints. Someone told me that this filly(Barn name Flicka) was only considered a paint with breeders papers but not a registered paint due to no color. Can some one explain this to me? The lady I'm buying her from showed me papers to register her once I make the second half of the payment. She said it's $65.00 to register and her registered name on the paperwork is Splendid Gypsy Rose. Thanks. Below are Flicka's mom and dad. I tried posting a link for the pedigrees for mom and dad from APHA site but it didn't work. Some names I see in the tree are Doc's Bar, Royal Viking, Painted Jewel

    Sire: Splendid Painted King:

    Dam: Doc's Lucky Gypsy.

    "muscular and tanky" does NOT equal structurally sound. Muscle development may be complete long before bones have finished growing and fused. It is the skeletal structure you are putting at risk more than anything.
    It's common misconception that breeds such as this are 'fast-maturing' and able to take weight earlier. Some horses I wouldn't even consider asking to take weight until they were 4.
    This is by far the best site explaining the whole issue:

    And that's without going into a discussion on the benefits of allowing a horse to mature mentally.

    A lot of the ones with the low backs could just be the way they road if they ride them with there heads up in the air then there backs will do that over time. I not saying to put some big fat guy on a small 2 year old or even a small guy on a small 2 year old, but I think that when that horse turns 2 that little girl can ride her with out worrying about it. I weigh 125 and would ride her when she turns two.
