I owned a Hancock mare that was anything but a bronc, so yeah they aren't all difficult.
I have had a few hancock horses and none have been broncy. I think it's a myth. Somehow they got a bad rap. It seems to be worse in the south since they aren't to prevelent there. In Wyoming, Idaho and Montana they are quite well thought of and popular. I have actually never seen one that is broncy.

I have an AQHA/APHA filly that is grandaughter of Freckle's Playboy (out of Payday for Playboy) and who's mother was line bred out of Barlink's Macho Man. She's a year and a half, and allready knows how to lounge, had been saddle, bitted, ridden by a younger sibling (so she was very light, and didn't put stress on her joints) and learned all this without being driven, trained every single day, let alone being trained proffesionally. So, that being said, is it just Holly being smart? Possibly. Is it her breeding? Possibly. I'm not really sure which one, but I tend to think it's her breeding.

Keven you're right.. I'm in the South where Hancocks are broncy, roman nosed things. I don't care for them, but do know those that do

I have heard that many of the Boon Bar horses are tricky and hard to train, not sure though as I have never messed with one. However, we have a local stud named Lena Fajita (Lena Fajita Quarter Horse) that the majority of his get are very hard to train. Spooky, broncy, and quick to bolt. However, once you get them trained, you won't find a more solid horse anywhere. Of course, there are exceptions. My brother bred his Mr San Peppy mare to him about 10 years ago and as a 3 year old, that colt was virtually bombproof. He never offered to misbehave at all. My dad's horse Pokey is out of a Lena Fajita mare and OMG, he was a monster to get broke. Dad's been using him for about 3 years and he is just now kinda starting to relax and mellow out a little bit.

I adore the Two Eyed Jack lines. The 2 of them that I had experience with were very laid back and easy going, if a bit lazy. Not stubborn but a long way from being energetic.

Really? I have what I believe to be a heavily bred Hancock mare and she is a dream. Calmest mare I've ever been around. She doesn't like a heavy hand tho.

I also have a Sonny Dee Bar gelding, Abe.. Bred for showing, he was a HUS winner at Congress as a 3 yr old. Now he's a big lapdog.

Same as my hancock horses, our former breeding stallion has 100% hancock breeding.

I'm sad that no one mentioned Coosa bred horses...

:) They tend to have wonderful personalities, all I have met are very sweet and have gorgeous, kind eyes.

I like Coosa's. I have a friend that tried for several years unsuccessfully to breed to Coosa. Not sure if it was his mare or the seamen? He finally was successful but the baby is really small.... Are they general small babies? It's a pretty baby....
