To be honest my reasoning was irresponsible. I love Spice and I wanted a foal out of her. While I contemplated this for a year or so, I looked at maybe 6 horses but didn't like any of them because I never kept my mind open, because in the back of my head I always had the knawing thought of getting a little Spice mini me. After joining this forum, I have learned so much and for awhile I beat myself up over my stupid decision. And that is exactly what it was a STUPID SELFISH decision. I have no doubt that my foal will be a great horse because thank god, Spice & Spirit have good attitudes, confo, and bloodlines. Not all impeccable and most certainly not up to breed worthy standards, but good enough to produce a quality horse for what I will use it for. I've owned my mistake.
You obviously have no problem selling and swapping your horses... If you bring another mediocre foal into this world it should be YOUR responsibility and in 3 years when another horse you like comes along, are you just going to swap this foal out like you want to do to get Solonos Spice Girl? Seems unfair to me. Theirs a diffrerence betweeen selling and buying horses as business and doing it because you can.
