Pros & cons of horses with flaws are the same thing for me. Fixing the flaws. Frustrating sometimes to work through some things but rewarding once you do.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Yep! Just as people do!

So yes, I'd want my horses to be as "flaw-less" as possible for my own sake and the sake of people who have to deal with them.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
