okay guys. About 2 months ago i purchased a 4 year old sorrel appendix gelding. He is the bane of my existence and yet i love him to death! He has been in training for eventing and has continued the training with me.

I have never known much about qh lines, but a friend casually mentioned to me when i bought him "that horse is a wasted jumper. Barrel race him". Never thought much about it. Today a friend at the barn commented that he looked like he might make a nice barrel horse. I told her "i've heard that before. I think his qh lines focus on barrel racing and qh racing. He was used in qh racing". So then she wanted to know who was on his papers. So i showed her.

His dam is little french rose, a daughter of frenchmans guy. Who is apparently a popular barrel stallion? And then she threw out a bunch of other names she recognized and got another girl involved and then proceded to convince me i was dumb as heck for not barrel racing this horse. They reccommended i send him to a barrel trainer and then sell him for big bucks.

So *ahem* my question is- is it stupid to be trying to go into a different direction with this horse? I know nothing about barrels! And he doesnt either! He is great at jumping and seems to love what he does. We work together great and i'm a little selfish and cant help but think i dont want to sell him for another discipline So my barrel hf friends- would it really be worth it to send him off to a barrel trainer? Am i "stupid" if i don't? Would i really be passing up the chance for a lot of money? Thanks for the opinions!

Here he is on all breed:

cadoc cheval appendix
that is not your horse! That is someone else's horse!
Your horse is muddy moon and i can prove it
