Good breeding is in the eye of the beholder....
The Black Stallion Paint Alot of people think that this colt was well bred. I don't. And yes I owned him...so I'm sure it's okay for me to post this.
In some situations I'd rather rescue in others I'd rather breed.
If I need a fun family horse, a good trail buddy, a little ranch gelding then I'd rescue.
If I needed my next reining prospect then I would definitely breed.
Some of you say you've rescued "good reining" horses out of the meat pen. Lets see pictures and pedigree info and we will see if they are what I considerd to be a good horse. If I'm going to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on a reining prospect (training fees, etc) then it's not going to be a crap shoot. I'm going to buy the best breed horse that I can find, and you just don't get horses like that in the meat pen.
