Could be. I do feel like a great benefit to this is education of the masses. Even if that is all that happens this is a good thing. You are not the type I am concerned about.
You are intelligent and know enough to test. Many do not. Shoot, I have a friend who has her first quarter horse, (a Smart and Shiny filly, but that is beside the point
). This friend has a BS in equine science, coached collegiate teams, has shown since childhood in many many disciplines and had NO clue about the hereditary diseases of QH's. She thought that if they were not to be bred, it was not a factor. And she is far and above the average back yard horse owner! So, if a little pamphlet comes in the mail when some new person registers there new widdle pweety poneh.....and it makes the aware-I am all for it.
