Now days it is a lot better but there are still those that don't like the chrome. Prob because that "isn't the color they are supposed to be".ducks4you said:That surprises me--I remember reading accounts of preferred paint horses in other parts of the world. I know that there is a spotted breed that hails from Northern Europe--NOT Appalousa, but something like a big, brown Dalmatian.BDial said:One of the prejudice against the pinto coloring was because my ancestors loved loud colored horses. They were indian ponies and not good enough for the American people to ride...
I had a problem with the thread because I had seen lots of ads for Pintabians which were 1/2 Arab or maybe 3/4 Arab but never purebred Arab. I have not had a real need for a paint, BUT our favorite Pone/horse was a big barrelled, 13.2hh tobiano, with great big spots and 2 blue eyes. Many non-horsey people asked if he was blind! ?!?!?!? whatever....
I DO know that so many people want a paint for the show ring, (to stand out,) then find themselves in the ring with a full house of other paints!
SOMEHOW, the Egyptian Arab has the genetics to improve other breeds. To do so, the breed must be bred to the same breed. If this stallion is a Polish Arab, I could certainly understand, because all of my research suggests that Polish Arabs are slightly outcrossed already.
I NEVER dismiss a horse because of color. TO me it is the LEAST important reason to buy, and color does not affect temperament. I also am not a purist when it comes to breed. I loved my Arab (27 years old this year--RIP) and I know that there is another one in my future. I know that there's another paint in my future, too. I am always willing to look at good horse, irrespective of lineage and coat color.
You may be referring to Knabstruppers.I know that there is a spotted breed that hails from Northern Europe--NOT Appalousa, but something like a big, brown Dalmatian.
Actually, a Pintabian is a pinto/Arab cross, that is almost all Arab. They're usually 80% or more Arab I think, but they cannot be registered as a purebred Arab, at least not for many, many, many generations, as you can never 100% breed out the outside influence. The Arab registry is very particular about registrations...I could not get them to register my half-Arab mare because her sire was a feral horse.

Try googling it, as I can't remember any of the farm names. Khartoon Khlassic is a lovely horse, and a lot of the Khemosabi kids had a lot of white- belly spots were common, as I recall.
