OK ,I think you once again missed my point.
I DO NOT WISH TO HIDE THE FACT HE IS NOT TRUE BLUE.
I am merely creating an awareness , in case someone else runs into the same issue. Genetic testing in this way is rather new back when this happened, AQHA never questioned it either until THAT PARTICULAR UNION!!
I WOULD NEVER MISLEAD MY CUSTOMERS , AND NEVER WILL!
By my SAYING , "IT DOES NOT AFFECT THE HORSE HE IS OR WHAT HE PUTS ON THE GROUND" ,
....is ment by his wonderful disposition , his confirmation , great foot , bone, ect , ect. Many of his babies have gone on to be wonderful horses as far as a real working horses , roping and barrel horses. COLOR IS ONLY A BONUS! Do you REALLY think ALL people are out to mislead others?
In the end...I was not surprised and since I do not breed for color over all, I was not that worried , and neither was anyone who bred to him , because I informed them. I have always been honest with anyone I have bred outside to , and have had many repeat customers.
...and yes, it scares me too....how many are out there that have not had the type of union that would raise that red flag?
Should my stallion have been a gelding , it never would have been an issue. I thought bringing this up would be an interesting subject, considering his outward appearance.
