Ok so in know i just posted a thread about Quarter horses. but i wanna hear your view on paints!!!
Ok this is what I've always heard from the cowboys and cowgirls out this way that have been at it for 20+yrs. They NEVER want to own/train another arabian or paint ever again! But if you get them broken and going and trained they are (both) one of the best horses you could own.....
Well, so lucky me I have a paint arabian cross, lol!
Paints are the exact same thing as a Quarter horse, except with color. :D They are versatile and come in many different shapes, forms, heights, etc. Oh.....and color. XD
I had a paint (recently had to sell him sadly) and even though he was a booger to train due to some harsh conditions he came from, you could always tell he was thinking every bit through.
Not a big tobiano fan, but love the overos! The paint I owned growing up was great....he did tricks and beat all the big QHs on the speed events. And this was a time when paints were looked down upon!
My Barn Manager says to never get a paint, unless they don't have much white. We are having a heck of a time taking care of the thinner skin of the white during the summer! They are cute though. My husband wants one, if I can ever get him on one.... ;)
What can I say? All Paints here and wouldn't have it any other way. Smart, versatile, sure footed, low maintenance, willing, and quick. They are always ready for riding whether it's every day or once every couple weeks.
This is Raven. She is a breeding stock Paint.
From what I was told, like Mango said, Paints are just QH's with color. Although from what I have been reading, they are basically either QH's with color, or TB's with color, as many of them seem to have TB lineage, like my guy for instance.
From my experience with them, they are very willing, very versatile, and enjoy human company.....but all horses are different of course :)
I own a Tobiano. Not sure why a post above was disparaging about Tobianos. Montana is the smartest horse I've ever been in contact with. He's probably a genius in the horse world. And I think Tobianos are about as striking as any horse. He's always willing to please and unlike my QH mare that I had for 15 years, not lazy. The 4 Paints at our barn have been really exceptional horses. To each his own - I happen to think that Overos are no where as near good looking as Tobianos. But hey, it's not the outside of a horse that's so important, it's what they're made of - personality, willingness, etc. and my Tobiano is certainly a winner on all levels. Em
