When did she say she didn't have a purpose? Did you care to ask the OP?
Look, I'm completely against backyard breeding, and irresponsible breeding for that matter. But, nearly every single post on the breeding forums regarding someone breeding their mare turns into a harsh lecture thread because some people can't keep their opinions to themselves. If her mare is ideal in her mind, and she can find a stallion that can compliment her mare nicely (even if choosing a stallion does involve color), then who are we to argue? Maybe she wants to keep the foal for herself. Maybe she wants to train that foal and love it just as much as her mare?
People coming on here and griping about how bad the economy is at the moment is not going to stop people from breeding their horses. It is just going to start a dumb argument like this one.
