Poseidon, while normally I would agree with you entirely, the horse market is completely different in Australia when compared to the Americas. Colours that you would consider common place over there are relatively rare here, due to the difference in riding styles. English is huge here, while Western is really only a select few. As a result, 'english' style breeds such as TBs and Warmbloods are the most common horses, and the stock breeds such as QHs and Paints, while not rare, are also not common either.
Add into that the fact that we don't have nearly as many issues with too many horses. So not only are these colours relatively hard to find, they are very rarely cheap. Fortunately, they are also very rarely badly conformed too.
Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.
