    That would not be a test for genetics - it would be a test for prepotency, but I have never heard of anyone doing anything quite like that to test for prepotency.

    If memory serves me correctly, I may have offered to sire a couple of babies for some girls when I was in college to see what I would throw, but they must have been on the pill or something...

    She would either have to buy these poor quality mares, or at least follow the offspring until they matured. If they are ghastly mares, I can just see now, how their owners will brag that they are bred to the Mr. XXX.

    So if these babies grow up to be horrible, does she understand that everyone will remember the stud who produced them. Few will blame their looks on the mare. It won't do much for his reputation.
