There are many different types of horses. Cowboys often use the Paint or Pinto horse for cattle work because they are nimble and work hard. American Paint Horses are excellent for ranch work, rodeo, trail riding, showing, or simply as a friendly mount for the kids. They are used in these fields mostly because of their temperament. American Paint Horses are typically easy-going, friendly, intelligent, and have distinctive coloring. Their coat markings fall into two classes - white-colored horses with dark markings and dark-colored coats with light markings. An average horse's lifespan is between 25 and 30 years. You'll wish they could live forever after watching this gorgeous video with horses of all types running wild and free.
