I'm looking at a couple of different barrel prospects. One is a cow-bred 2 y/o filly from what I've learned, and the other is a reining-bred un-started 6 year old stud.
I am not aiming for the big time, just some jackpots near home, but my current horse is a draft mix lol. She's my heart horse, but just not the quickest on the pattern.
I did look at a few barrel bred youngins but to be honest nothing caught my eye.
I'm thinking of looking at the stud (has never bred a mare and would be gelded immediately). He is close to me and is unregistered from reg'd lines, which I think is partly why he is priced so low. I have not looked at him yet. I like the fact that he is older than 2 because I don't even like to start horses under saddle before 3... But before they are 6 lol.
He is reining/cutting bred for sure so there should be agility there, but is there any way to tell BEFORE I buy him whether or not he might have the desire to run?
Like I said, he was never actually registered but here is his pedigree:
(On a side note, am I reading correctly on the AQHA site that to register him would be around $500)?
