To SOME mutts or half breeds are useless. To others they are their prized possessions. Such as mine. I don't care for the best of the best. I don't want a nice fancy horse. Something that could be my friend and show me the trails is all I care for.
I have heart problems ... the one thing I insured was the placement of my horse if I don't outlive him. He is my boy and I love him without papers but that sure wouldn't help his placement.
I see you are at least rethinking your breeding. As far as the designer breeds? What do you think they are getting out of it? Lining their pockets is all that I can see. Very sad and who pays the price?
