I agree, and disagree. If its not on paper, in a registry, how can anyone know for sure? People lie? The dam could be "purebred" but never registered. Or she could look like a QH so thats what they claim she is.
I have an unregistered Curly. Hes a Grade. I know exactly where his sire and dam came from. I know when he was born. I know the breeder, but hes still Grade and thats what hed be sold as cause i dont have proof to follow what i say.
Honestly, after everything your saying about the breeder, id recommend your friend taking her business elsewhere. Supporting these backyard breeders that dont pay any mind to genetic diseases is dispicable and unwarrented in the business. She could get a nicely bred, registered, already broke horse for $400 if she looks. The economy is bad for horse buying so shes bound to find a deal.
