I hate to say it, but anyone who is lured in by pictures of pretty horses probably gets what they deserve. I'm not saying I don't love pictures of beautiful horses, but what is it in a horse's bloodline that makes it worthy of breeding? It depends on what is important to each particular person. Maybe it is color, maybe conformation, maybe athletic ability, maybe a certain "look". Whatever it is, although the desired trait(s) may be inherent in the bloodline, that doesn't mean every individual in that bloodline is going to possess that trait or ability. Regardless of the desired trait or ability, the intended stud (or mare) should be able to demonstrate that ability. If it is color or conformation, so be it. If it is athletic ability, then there must be accomplishments in that ability. We get a lot of lip service from people who think their breeding stock is the best thing since sliced bread. Unless they can demonstrate that their stud or mare is carrying on that legacy, then all it really is is talk.
