I bought my brown roan for color and his bloodlines. He is a great horse, but I ended up falling in love with a very plain chestnut mare. I now have two horses if I had worked them both before picking the colorful one, I would only have my Roxy girl

I didnīt buy for colour. I think I bought her for her personality. It certainly wasnīt for her intelligence, broke-ness, or general suitability for what I wanted her for.

I think I chose three other horses for all the right reasons, and then went a little weird for the fourth one (the one licking my face in the photo).

Around 8000km later, though, and maybe I didnīt do so bad after all. And neither did she. Although maybe I should mention that she was the only one who managed to fall overboard off a barge on a tributary of the Amazon...
