Lovely shot! By AHA (Arabian Horse Association) standards we'd refer to her as a Half-Arab (and if you know her sire's side you could even show her as a Half-Arab at the shows). Pretty girl and adorable filly!
*Pinto, not Paint. Paints have to come from AQHA, APHA, or Jockey Club registered parents, Pintos are horses with paint markings that aren't descended from Quarter Horses, Thoroughbreds or registered Paints (or are one of those three crossed with another breed - in this case Arabian).
But she's GORGEOUS! I love her markings and it looks like she got more of the positives of the cross than the negative.
you're probably right, i'll def take your word for it. but thing is, i can't always be technical in the title. i have to choose the most popular/possible search terms/keywords for the image title since that is what DA looks at most when people are searching. if i put pinto, hardly anyone would find this picture. many of my horses' image titles aren't technically accuratee, but only what most common people will search for. hope that made sense :] yeah i think she's a brilliant cross, a dream horse.
I understand on the title, maybe you could clarify in the description? That way it's still correct, but also still easy for people to find. As a Paint owner, it just tends to get frustrating when people assume that everything with white body markings is a Paint when that's the furthest thing from the truth since technically Paint is a breed and Pinto is a color (it's all about registries).
I DID mis-word my last comment though... Paints and Pintos are similar to squares and rectangles - all Paints are Pintos, but not all Pintos are Paints. So it should've been "Pintos are horses with paint markings that aren't NECESSARILY descended from Quarter Horses, Thoroughbreds or registered Paints" XP
i can't really be bothered hun, i'd have to change a lot more of my gallery then. my focus is just providing stock. it sucks that it bothers you so much. i can see how it can be irritating for you, being an owner of an actual paint. but most average people won't even notice. so paint crosses can't be considered paint?
Not unless it's a Paint/QH or Paint/TB "cross" (honestly, it's not really like an actual cross since all three of those breeds are so heavily intertwined genetically). Otherwise the horse won't meet the parentage requirement for the APHA.
