Nothing wrong with buying a horse for color, it is like finding a husband, if you are going to have it for the rest of its life, make sure you like looking at it.
LOL!!!!!!!!!! Love it!
I agree -- when I was narrowing down horses, it came down to my current buckskin mare vs. a chestnut Morgan. I chose the buckskin...I rode both of them so it certainly wasn't the color I was choosing alone, but even though the buckskin was greener I clicked better with her, liked her personality and calmness, and loved her color ;) So I went with her, and have been blessed that I did ever since!
Just don't close yourself off from other colors if an opportunity to check out another non-buckskin horse arises...you may end up pleasantly surprised at what you'll click with if you leave your options open!
