Their horses are a great example of how to breed quality. That buckskin filly they recently advertised (any one else drool over her?) is a good example of a well conformed horse that happens to have an interesting colour.
Here's the thing, if that exact filly was a plain chestnut, I would have thought to myself "nice youngster...next?" but because she was buckskin I thought "WOW I wonder how I can get my hands on a horse like her".
Not saying it is right, or logical, and as I previously stated, colour is probably last on my list of things to look for. But if everything else is in order and there is a choice between two...well...I've never owned a coloured horse before....
