    Just as a note.......A paint is simply a painted color American Quarter Horse. I own both and to be a paint or considered for registry the horse must be either get of registered paints or both parents must be registered quarter horses - the same for a Palomino. Their dna must be traceable to registered AQHA stock and their characteristics/muscle size etc. are the same. As to the best for cattle work - is the horse that can do the job. Work all day and then some, cool calm and collected, listens, smart, anticipatory and fun to ride :)
