I think it should be my choice.
I'm not a selfish person, I have rescued horses, dogs, and cats. my dogs have always been mutts (save for one scottish terrier bought back in the 80's by my parents). My cats are all pound kitties or strays. My first few horses were abuse or neglected cases.
I bred my mare. I have a wonderful baby out of her. He's a registered QH. I never had a horse with papers before. I wanted papers. I love my horse, and not just because he has papers. He's what I wanted. I could have adopted, I could have "saved" one from an auction, I wanted one with papers. Don't I have that right? Why should I feel guilty for wanting a well-bred papered horse? I offer a helping hand when I can, I even donate money. Shouldn't that be enough?
I bought a dog 2 summers ago. He's a collie, with papers. I've always wanted one and I love him dearly. Why should every animal I own come from a pound or a rescue? Why can't I have a pure bred dog? I help when I can... I donate when I can.
I think it should be MY choice.
"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"
