I dont really think it matters what colour horses are... i spose its different on the east side of the pond but i didnt even know what colour my horse was when i went to see him! its not that i dont agree with 'breeding for colour' but see it being a bit pointless appart from appy and paint shows etc...

In britain we have a palomino registery, they will accept any breed as long as they are palomino in colour, not sure i see the point as they are very few 'colour shows' here. i like the idea that if they a registered they are easy allowed to enter shows, everything is proven etc, etc. but i see there being more of a point in them being registered for breed like AHS and APHA and also BSJA and BD (british sj assoc. and British dressage) so they can compete.

I agree with clouds though all horses of a particular breed like AQHA should be accepted into the registery, if they are pure or part bred (qh say) then i really dont see why not. it would make things difficult if they are registered without a colour and they are used for breeding... :/

In the "retail" side of the horse business color outweighs bloodline, conformation or a good mind. Since most rules of the orginizations are made by the breeders, ask them about the rules relating to color.

The only place it doesn't apply is in the racing business.

Guess if I want a blond baby I should DNA any prospective wife to be sure my chances are high enough to take the risk!! Thats a joke but it goes to the point of human intervention in the natural selection breeding--the badest stud breeds the mares--that has seemed to work pretty darn well before us humans got involved.

This is not at all true. I can show you more buyers who will look at pedigree conformation and athletic ability over color any day of the week. Color will not win you a pay check. All the others will. It will also pay off in the next generation where color will not.
