For the Pintaloosa Branch
**For equine to qualify in the "Pintaloosa" Catagory one must be eligible for one of the 3 types of group class. The class
types are the EXACT types from the real horse registry.
Class A Type > horse must possess BOTH characteristic color patterns of the Pinto AND Appaloosa. (Proof of parentage
Class B Type > Proof of parentage is required for this Class type only - horse that shows only one (1) color pattern
characteristic of either the Pinto or Appaloosa, but the parentage of the horse is Pinto and Appaloosa or Pintaloosa.
(example: a registered Class A Pintaloosa stallion is breed to a QH solid mare and the foal is born with only one color pattern
type, this foal would be classified as a Class B type or if bred to a any spotted horse or another Pintaloosa)
(if a foal is born of a solid color, it can be put into the CPI program - "Certified Parentage Identification", one parent
must be registered with ISHR. This is not a registration, but rather a certification of the hereitage it it possesses.)
Class C Type > If horse is of only one color pattern, but it is known (but can't be proved) that the sire and dam were
Pinto and Appaloosa or Pintaloosa, then the horse will receive this classification. (or if the owner chooses, depending on
the color markings, the horse can be registered as a Patchwork Paint or an Appaloosa)
(from drafts to miniatures)
