But anyway, congrats! It sounds like he is doing amazing.
Yes many years ago they were only breeding for color. They have since perfected that and have begun breeding for both color and displines....i am use to getting the " what th heck are you doing here?" looks at the shows around here...even the higher level shows but I just smile and nod and concure them with my paint horse
...which the judges do NOT like just for his color. My horses bloodlines produce very versatile, quick learning horses. Go check out the late apha horse "Sacred Indian" White Harvest Farms and look at his off spring.....tell me that breeding was only ment for color. He was a grand pirx champion jumper....his off spring...jumpers( mostly), reining, pleasure, trail, driving,,,the list goes on.
