What is the point? Alot of ugly Arabs that are a purty color? Hopefully the remaining horses can be salvaged and placed in loving homes & Tory will find another hobby (hopefully in jail).
Sabino Arabians can show. They do well in performance, not quite so well accepted in Halter yet. I can list plenty of Sabinos and splash Arabians have done, and are doing, well. But you got to have the quality behind the colour.
Other then a select few, all of these horses are purebred, and are registered with AHA.
As per breeding programs, I guess we all have different opinions. You might not like my horses for my program, nor I yours. We all breed with something specific that we like in mind. I just won't buy from you and you won't buy from me and all is good. You and I in general times - not me and you in particular.
That being said, there is a reason she had so many horses, and the same ones have been for sale for forever. There isn't one personally that she's bred (although I will say, MMM doesn't look half bad, or didn't, granted he survived or not - I think her choice of mares were wrong, but that's my opinion) that I would use, whether I'm a fan of Sabinos (I am) or not. I saw too many long backs, long cannons, no hips, and all colour.
What I don't get is breeding when you can't care for animals. Be realistic about what prices you are setting for your "quality" horses. $35,000 for a yearling filly out of unproven stock that is not halter quality is not reasonable.
It's also not reasonable to see your $35,000 stock starving out in the field.
