Breeders of marked varieties are presented with special
challenges. With Brokens, the animals not only have
to excel in patching and distribution, but type as well.
When competing against other American varieties, such
as Black or White Selfs, where exceptional quality already
exists in the fancy, Brokens have tough competition.
Although type accounts for less points on Brokens than
for Selfs or Solids and Agoutis (under ARBA Standard
of Perfection), everything has to be going for a
Broken Color to cinch that Best of Breed win.
