That always makes me sad to read about, and I just got done reading a thread from earlier in the month about it.
My horses are the mostest beautifulest evar (
) but I'm glad we got Dixie before the other buyer did. The previous owners were skeptical because the woman was inquiring about Dixie's breeding history and wanted to be able to return her if she didn't get pregnant. Don't tell Dixie I said this, but she's just not good breeding stock. Back toes out, pretty downhill, etc.
I wish everyone could look honestly
at their horses and ask themselves, "Is my horse REALLY worth breeding/breeding to?"
