I remember as well when Paint, Pinto and Piebald were all only colours. Palamino was under debate at the time. Appaloosa has always been a breed in the horsey part of my lifetime that I am aware of. A pony was anything under 14.2h, colouring and breeding didn't matter. And all quarter horses were easily HORSES not PONIES! Hahahaha
Somewhere there is a thread on here about how old we all are, but I couldn't find it.
