Horses and Ponies with unusual or exotic coats have been found throughout history. They are usually highly prized by man. In fact, some now qualify as its own breed. The reason for this is because the color of certain horses can be found through out many breeds of horse. Man bred many horses together just to keep the certain color, causing the breed to be unknown over time. Take paints for example, they can be ponies or horses, and they are referred to as a "paint" which is their color not breed. Over time these "types" of horses and ponies became separated from a breed to color. Other than the color of their coat, a horse type can help to classify a group of horses. For example, warmbloods have a wide range of breeds who are classified as a warmblood type of horse.
