I just don't understand the thinking that is an "acceptable risk." It doesn't increase the chance for color, heck you can't even increase the chance for the amount of white showing! I just cannot understand why people feel that letting a mare go through a pregnancy just to have to euth a foal at the end. *sigh* I just want to go around smacking people in the back of the head that do thinks its an acceptable risk.

I know. And the thing that really gets me is, the original owner of this mare bought the stud fee from this stallion, a 5X World Champ so I bet it wasn't exactly a give away, sent the mare to a repro station to be bred via AI and then had to sell her at auction. I won't say what I paid for her, but I guarantee the vet bill to impregnate her was higher. And then to get either a Lethal White foal, which you have to kill (thanks to God it didn't happen) or a Breed Stock which is what did happen. So, 2 out of 4 outcomes aren't desirable. So, if I were going to breed back to this stallion since I got a solid, I'd pay, $150 re-breed fee, whatever collection and handling is, probably around $400 per shipment, and then $300 per cycle for the insemination at OSU. For WHAT? Another chance at a Lethal White foal or another Solid? Seriously? No it absolutely is not worth the risk, not morally, ethically OR financially. I don't get it.
