I'm really curious about my horse's breeding. She was bred entirely for color (!) but her parents have some ancestors with familiar names. Could you tell me a little bit about what they were bred for, etc? I have a hunch that Diamond is 'cow-ey' (is that how you say it?) just because of her personality, though she's never seen a cow up close before. She also has a tendency to run around barrels when loose in the arena, which really surprised me when I first saw it. Does she happen have any barrel racing ancestors way back there?

There are many AQHA point earners in NCHA such as Royal King and Major King. Race and Halter on her dams side... So yes your girl might like to dart around and run.. Most of her quarter horse on her dams side is foundation breeding...Lots of Halter and performance on her sires side..She should be able to do just about anything you ask her to do with a level head. She is also built very nice from what I can tell from her picture..
