If you plan on doing any breed shows, I believe some Paint shows and registries only register horses with a certain amount of color, so if that matters to you....
Otherwise, no, I wouldn't. Color is nice, flashy in the show ring (but honestly, every color can be shined up to look nice IMO) and helpful if you need to re-sell, but it's otherwise unimportant in the scheme of things. It should be your LAST qualifier. The other thing is, you want a partner who you enjoy. Some people can't get past a horse's looks to see his demeanor and ability, and if you're one of these people, you should look for a horse that is aesthetically pleasing to you, as well as having a good demeanor and working conformation.
