    I don't know why anyone would want her - fugly head just like her momma's - but the rest of her is okay, I guess. But...she's just a mutt. A loveable mutt.

    The daughter that wanted her backed out, but I think we'll keep her - even if she does get really tall. As sweet and gentle as she is, she might make a decent horse.

    Trainer friend said it was such a pity she wasn't registered - she would have been great as a jumper. I didn't know they had to be registered for that. BUT - this is cowboy country anyway - and she will probably be stout like both her parents - maybe make a reiner or a roper? Barrel racer (granddaughter would LOVE that!)

    You have been listening to too many people on this forum! I don't see why a "mutt" is any less of a horse than a registered horse. They may not have as much monetary value, but they can be every bit as good (or better) as a riding and pleasure horse.

    Not exactly listening to them. There are some grade horses that I have seen sell for $10,000 - $15,000 - but they were special - well trained, experienced rodeo horses.

    I just don't see Rain being one of those. Her being a great riding horse, though, is pretty much a given. She's even showing signs she may single-foot just like her momma!

    Hey, a good horse is a good horse regardless of papers.

    Agreed! Unless one is planning on breeding at some point, I don't really see the need for papers on a using horse. Nor does a using horse have to be perfect!

    Precisely. Shoot, my best horse is a mutt and there are very few people in this world who would have enough money to even make me consider selling him.
