The Life of Animals | American Paint Horse | Sometimes Breeding Stock Paints can showcase small color traits, particularly if They carry Sabino genetics. The American Paint Horse shares a Common Ancestry with the American Quarter Horse and the Thoroughbred.
The American Paint Horse's combination of color and conformation has made the American Paint Horse Association (APHA) the second-largest breed registry in the United States. While the colorful coat pattern is essential to the identity of the breed, American Paint Horses have strict bloodline requirements and a distinctive stock-horse body type. To be eligible for registry, a Paint's sire and dam must be registered with the American Paint Horse Association, the American Quarter Horse Association, or the Jockey Club (Thoroughbreds). There are two categories of registration, regular, for horses with color, and solid Paint-Bred, for Those without color. Each Paint Horse has a particular combination of white and another color of the equine spectrum.
When the American Quarter Horse Association emerged in 1940 to preserve horses of the "stock" type, it excluded Those with pinto coat patterns and "crop out" horses, Those born with white body spots or white above the knees and hocks. Undeterred, fans of colorful stock horses formed a variety of Organizations to preserve and promotes Paint horses. In 1965 some of these groups merged to form the American Paint Horse Association.
