Hi I'm Tim Wigren, owner and operator of Command Performance here in Ridgefield, Washington and I am here to talk to you about what is a breeding stock Pinto. A breeding stock Pinto is a solid colored horse who could be either one parent could be a Pinto or Paint or both parents could be Pinto or Paint. This horse carries the characteristics genetically of being a Pinto but it does not show the obvious color. Many people use a breeding stock horse as the basis for their breeding program. You may have one horse who is a color and one horse who is a solid. It is not uncommon to have a solid colored horse produce Pintos just as it is not uncommon to have two Pinto horses produce a solid. A few years ago in 2006, the Pinto registry had the foresight of opening their registration and allowing breeding stock horses to be utilized and to be recognized in the show ring, thus giving the people who did not get the Pinto color the chance to exhibit their Pintos and utilize the breed characteristics for which they are so proud of.
