Oh yeah, definitely. Color breeders
. I've been to the auctions too...not a pretty place
. And you know, I had a few mares..each one I was told by multiple people that I should breed them.
And...told by people I respect and knew well (like the gal I boarded with). Nevermind I was 18 years old, had no experience raising foals, and my horses weren't really anything special.
