Welcome to
Wakoda Paint Horses

Our aim is to Produce quality horses at Halter, Ride and above all else make the best of mates!!

We have always had a love for the beautiful Paint Horse but one in particuliar "Holster Touch Me Not" He is the sole reason we breed Paint Horses today. We believe that Holster gave the true meaning to the word "Allrounder" Looks, ability and above all a temperment that was second to none. We were lucky enough to own this magnificent sire who left his mark on many of his babys and I'm sure a mark on a number of peoples hearts.

We hope to continue on producing quality stock from our other great Sire I Am Justafied, I belive we are certainly on the way, having produce many quality show stoppers over the past 4 years, from state, National and even royal champions. I Am Justafied is producing versatile, inteligent foals that Halter, Ride and make a friend for a life time.


The Paint Horse

Each Paint Horse has a particular combination of white and another color of the equine spectrum.

Most common are horses with white spots combined with black, bay, dark bay (called brown by the APHA), and chestnut or sorrel. Less common are horses with spots that are palomino, buckskin, gray, cremello, perlino, various shades of roan, or various shades of dun, including grullo.

Spots can be any shape or size, except Appaloosa patterning, and located virtually anywhere on the Paint's body. Although Paints come in a variety of colors with different markings, these are grouped into only four defined coat patterns: overo, tobiano and tovero and solid.

Breeding Stock Paints can sometimes showcase small color traits, particularly if they carry the Sabino gene. Such traits include blue eyes, pink skin on lips and nostrils, roan spots, and minimal roaning.

Terms for color patterns defined:

  • Tobiano: The most common spotting pattern, characterized by rounded markings with white legs and white across the back between the withers and the dock of the tail, usually arranged in a roughly vertical pattern and more white than dark, with the head usually dark and with markings like that of a normal horse. i.e. star, snip, strip, or blaze.
  • Overo: Spotting pattern characterized by sharp, irregular markings with a horizontal orientation, usually more dark than white, though the face is usually white, sometimes with blue eyes. The white rarely crosses the back, and the lower legs are normally dark.
  • Sabino: Often confused with roan or rabicano, sabino is a slight spotting pattern characterized by high white on legs, belly spots, white markings on the face extending past the eyes and/or patches of roaning patterns standing alone or on the edges of white markings. In some registries, sabinos are registered as having the overo pattern
  • Tovero: spotting pattern that is a mix of tobiano and overo coloration, such as blue eyes on a dark head.
  • Solid: A horse otherwise eligible for registration as a Paint that does not have any white that constitutes a recognized spotting pattern.
  • "Color": An informal term meaning that the horse has a spotting pattern. (The opposite of "Solid.")
  • "Chrome": An informal term of approval used in some geographic regions to describe a particularly flashy spotting pattern.
