Thought, fact and quote for the day 21/4/12

Thought 4the day: When things arun smoothly and your in control the world is at your side but we all have those days where we may think things are going out of kilter when it reality its still ok! We had one of them days yesterday! We had one pony jump a fence to be in with another group, another opened his gate and decided the grass looked greener on the other side, another decided to get her sho...e caught i could go on! But when i sat and thought about it things were not really that bad when you weigh it up. Some people had a lot worse day then us. A friend of ours posted on the wall that a mare died while giving birth :o( We reposted to see if we can help find the a foster mare and i hope they do find one. The world with our beloved four legged friends has its ups and downs and luckily and thankfully we will always have those four legged friends...
Fact 4the day: Color breed

A color breed is a term that refers to horses that are registered based primarily on their coat color, regardless of the horse's actual breed or breed type.

Some color breeds only register horses with color that also meet specific pedigree criteria, others register animals based solely on color, regardless of parentage. A few pedigree-based color breeds, confronted the reality of many animals born without the proper color even though they are from two registered parents, have modified their rules to allow registration of animals with the proper pedigree even if they do not possess the proper color.

For example, many different breeds, such as American Quarter Horses, Tennessee Walking Horses and American Saddlebreds come in the palomino color, as well as a wide variety of other colors. However, a color breed registry, such as the Palomino Horse Breeders Association (PHBA) , accepts only palomino (or palomino-looking) horses—regardless of their particular breeds. Thus, Palomino can be considered a color breed. Another example is the pinto horse color. Horses of many breeds can be registered as Pinto if it they have the correct spotting pattern. White horses also have their own color registry: it includes cremello horses, but not grays.

Many horses eligible for registration with their own breed registry and are of a particular color are often "double registered" in both registries, often increasing their sale value by doing so. With stallions, double registration may also increase their breeding value by widening the set of interested mare owners.
