As a breeder or seller, it's your job to advertise your horse(s) to the community as nicely as possible, because these horses that you sell represent who you are as a breeder, trainer, and overall, your stable's reputation.
When a foal is born, oh what a glorious thing it is!, it is often thought that as a breeder in our community that you cannot alter the foal's coat. There's no set rules for this, however, we do highly encourage you to completely remove blemishes and other markings not characteristic of your foal's breed. It's also important to know that changing the hoof colors is also highly recommended. This is a minor detail to most people, but it's significant enough to make the difference between realistic and unrealistic. People want your foals to simulate foals in real life, because this virtual reality we enjoy is often the alternative for many of us who cannot own horses in real life. They don't want horses with weird looking blotches on their face! So, again, it is OK to edit your foals to make them look more realistic.
Horses - Adults & Elders
For creating and selling adults or elders, you should provide at least a front shot and two side shots. Optional shots might include some pictures of your horse performing various gaits, jumping, or interacting with people. Just like foals, you want your adult horses to go out into the community and bring great reputation to your stable. They should be realistically colored and built to their breed standards. As for elders, EA has provided us with a rather HIDEOUS elderly coat overlay. There's currently no fix for this, but I'm sure they're will be one eventually.
