It's been a while since we've focused on a Krazy Kolor Breeder here. We all know who they are. They claim their stallion produces 100% color (because they don't register the plain brown ones), or they have a HIDEOUS looking cremello. They can talk all day about perlinos, grullas, palominos, buckskins and how you get each of those, but they ignore upright shoulders, backs longer than a dachshund's and calf knees. They can quote you the colors involved in their horse's ancestry, but can't point to a single point earner in the past three generations. The most recent "name" horse in their stud's pedigree is Bucephalus.
Now here's my question. OK, another day, another wacko hoarder. But does anybody see how a lot of this happened? Well, to begin with, CLEARLY the people who sold Ms. Elledge horses did not ask to see her property. She has a LONG history of this kind of behavior and there have ALWAYS been emaciated horses at her house. Numerous people are saying they reported her and nothing was done (what else is old).
Please, don't ever look at something like this and walk away.
1. Breeding low end horses based only upon color.
2. Having absolutely NO plan with regard to feeding, training, or vet care. You KNOW those mares NEVER saw a vet during their pregnancies. Those babies have NEVER seen a tube of dewormer or a farrier before now. You should see the worm pics, they're on SAFE's message board. Ewwwwwwww.
3. Taking on far more than you can afford AND THEN BREEDING MORE. Again, BREEDING means you have MORE to FEED. It is not something you should do when your finances are shaky to begin with! BREEDING LOW END HORSES DOES NOT MAKE MONEY. IT DOESN'T! NOT EVER! If you are a lowlife with no morals who can't possibly bring yourself to get a job, DEAL DRUGS or BECOME A PROSTITUTE. Those things actually MAKE money. Feeding a mare for fifteen months to get a foal you sell for $150 at the auction does not constitute a profit!
