The pintaloosa thread!
 
Yes! I'm buying another horse! And he's a pintaloosa! XD

No pictures yet, I gotta drag my dad over to work out the contract and payment plan (can't since I'm not 18 just yet). He's RIGHT across the street, I mean literally my neighbor. I've been staring, mouth agape, at him for months now. My dad kicked me over there to go inquire and now I'm going to buy him 8D
He's kinda halter/lead broke :lol: coming two year old. Can't wait to start working him.

He's kinda this coloring:

Would that make him a black tobiano appaloosa with gray and/or varnish? Or... O.o

I was hoping you would post! I drool over your guy every time I see him!

Twogeldings - I don't know what you'd actually call the markings on your horse, if it looks like the one in the picture, but I know they can change - my gelding, (in the above pictures) had no color on him up until 4 years old, his roan seeming spots were gray like the horse you pictured, and each year he gets more and more red in his "roaning". In the pictures I have above, the one on the bottom is about a month after I got him, last July, the middle picture is last winter, the top picture is this spring, and below I'll post a picture of today. He's 8 years old, and you can see a definite "progression" of him turning red from gray - weird!

QH - awww thanks :) He makes me laugh every single day.

Nothing against these particular horses, but I am curious as to why it's posted in the BREED section. Probably would have been more appropiate in the Picture section.
Okay, I'm wondering if the OP actually things a "Pintaloosa" is a breed??

If you look through this section, there are many, many "color" threads, not based on breeds. As there is no specific "coloration" section on the forum (and none needed, I would assume, unless people object to coloration threads being placed in this section) there doesn't seem to be a better place to put it. Of course pintaloosa is just a coloration, not a breed, same as the "show me your buckskin" or "show me your bay" threads that have been in this section. If the OP didn't know that I assume she does now. :lol:

I admit, I wondered this too!

Are they cute? For sure! But they are not a breed.

Definitely not a breed! *lol* And I think the color combo only comes through on full size horses in "mutts". My gelding is definitely a mutt! I've seen some minis that are pintaloosas, but I've only seen in in large horses in crossbreeds.

While I strongly disagree with breeding for color, I do find the genetics behind color patterns in horses to be fascinating. Claymore, before he was gelded, was bred to many different solid colored mares, and all but one foal was a pintaloosa - the foal that was not pintaloosa looked like a heavily sabino clydsdale.
