No, most are not mules and donkeys. However they do run low because of the lack of demand. Color or not, horses are horses and I have seen decent cutting/reining bred horses ran through the sales in east TX. Roans, palominos whatever they still get ran through. Depends on the bidding as who gets them, a backyard owner or kill buyer. Not all of the horses are stolen either. The market would have to warrent the risk and in the last 15+ years the horse market has not been well enough to make stealing and sending horses to auction or kill pens to make it lucrative.
