Thanks for your reply Midwest
I personally don't get all the color drama.......... a good horse is a good horse, is a good horse and I don't think his (her) color has a lot to do with it. I mean I love a pretty paint as much as the next person, but for the AQHA to state on her papers that my filly, (because she has a tiny white marking on her gaskin) has an "undesirable trait" that is "uncharacteristic of the breed" is ridiculous in my opinion! Why the hell would that matter? She's still as quick, still as sweet, still as spirited, still as AQHA (she has NO APHA in her heratige) as she would be if she didn't have a white spot on her gaskin..... oh wait...... is there some sort of scientific proof that a white spot causes a 3.5 second speed decrease or something??! NO.....I didn't think so. It's like comparing blonde , brunette and redheaded women, we're all women, we all have the same parts for crikey sake. Yeah go ahead dudes, you tell your brunette GF that she has an "undesirable" trait ........I dare Ya!!!!!!!!
