Paint horse foals have the breed’s beautiful characteristic patches right from birth. They are actually just dappled Quarter Horses. In the past, however, only solid-coloured animals could be registered in the studbook. But Paint horses were so popular that just two decades later they were recognised as a breed in their own right.
Paint horses have only been an official breed since 1965.
- Scientific name: Equus ferus
