Wanted: Help With Percheron Bloodlines
So right now I've been looking at weanling Percheron Fillies, and I'm hoping to go all out one day and get a girl that's registered and papered. I'd love to train her for showing, and perhaps aim for the Royal Winter Fair as a far away, not in a million years goal - a girl can dream, can't she?
But every time I look at a Percheron I get lost in those big dark eyes. And then I look at the pedigrees and I get... more lost. The names mean little to me. I've worked with unregistered Percherons before, and I love the look and mannerisms of the ones I've worked with - even the crazy ones. But how do you judge breeding in Percheron? I'm decent when it comes to conformation - not pro, but I can spot the nasty conformation faults, and I know what I like in an adult Percheron's conformation.
So the question is, what do you look for in bloodlines with Percherons? And are there any lines that are good to be leary of?
Thanks in advance. :)
