While color does help make a people look at a horse I always know if I had a real nice sorrel and a not so nice buckskin my sorrel would sell first into a performance home.
Of course, quality, conformation, good breeding (Foundation, for me), and performance mentality must all be there before I start to look at color ... but after breeding for so many years, I've honed the herd to a point where they really meet my standards, and I have the luxury of playing colors now.
My perlino King Fritz mare is AA EE Cr/Cr - so, nothing but buckskins (or perlinos) from her. Buckys don't sell as well as palominos, but the quality she gives me is PRIMO - and she ticks all the other boxes, as well. She is one of my star mares, and I really treasure her <3
