Brief History

Palominos were created for their unique attractive color and their meat quality. They were shown for the first time at the ARBA Convention in 1952 as the breed "Washingtonian". Mark Young used a coffee can as a suggestion box for naming his breed. One of those suggestions was the Golden Palomino which he shortened to Palomino. The breed became official at the 1957 ARBA Convention.
