A solid paint?
 
Which iv been told is the same as breed stock paint. In order to be a true "breed stock paint" it has the have a white marking somewhere located on its body correct? I had a breed stock paint and he had a white marking on his stomach a about the size of a 50c piece. I was told if they have no white markings on their body then they are not a true paint. Is this true? Or is there such a thing as a solid paint

From what I understand, a breeding stock paint is a horse with 2 paint parents that, for some reason, is born with none of the white markings normally associated with paint horses. Like they are born with a small star and one sock but no other white.

I think it is kindof the same thing as a crop-out in the QH world.

yeah smrobs you are right and a cropout is the opposite (paint coloured from two solid parents)

But it must have a white marking the size or a quarter or bigger somewhere on its body other then legs and face right?

A "Stock Paint" doesn't have to have ANY markings on him at all, the only requirement is that one or more of the parents is registered with APHA. If only one parent is, then the other must be Quarter Horse with AQHA registration or a Thoroughbred registered with Jockey Club.

The registration will state "Breeding Stock" in the Upper right hand corner (see example below). Cinny is a good example...his only markings are a star, broken strip and a snip on his face. No blue eyes, no socks, nothing else. Most people think he's a Quarter Horse.

To be in the regular paint registry without the "Breeding Stock" in the upper right corner it needs to have a white spot extending more than 2 inches other than usual markings such as stars, socks, etc..... or white reaching above it's knees...I think some white faces with blue eyes qualify as well.

this gelding at my barn it is on his papers as "Solid Paint" but he only has socks on 3 legs and a star and snip. Yet he has no other white markings, from what i understood from your post, he should be considered breeding stock right?

Yep, he's a breeding stock I believe. I'm currently leasing a solid paint registered as breeding stock. She's all black with only one sock and a star.

We think the papers he has are not his. He has no white markings what so ever besides a little on his face and socks. No blue eyes. And it says he is a solid paint. The papers say he is black but the horse is a liver chestnut. We looked up his pedigree online and its completely opposite of his actual papers, he is a gelding but his pedigree online says he is a mare.

Yes, it sounds like a Breeding Stock paint. I know on Cinny's papers it says "Solid" under pattern...maybe they are talking about that, or have you seen the actual papers? I think they used to word it differently before they started coming out with the "Paint Alternative" division.

Yes i saw the actual papers we were looking at them today. His type of registration is "Solid Paint" he was born in 04.
