I totally agree.


Blackburn horses (Wagoner Ranch)= Calm, easy minds. Maybe a little lazy but I like them.

Pitzer Ranch horses= Pretty but a little hotter than some will like. They need a job.

Driftwoods= ugly heads but they will go all day long. These are true cowboy horses, cowboys love them.

What about Blue Valentine horses? What about Robert Redford? What about Joe Quincy? Anybody know anything about these?

I think to some extent horses get some of their sire and dam's temperament but their uprbringing also affects their personality.

Piper is out of Enduring Tradition who is out of Noble Tradition. : )

Ok, so I am a total bloodline buff, especially QH racehouse lines. I think, somewhat, you can generalize on lines but seriously. A 'Driftwood' bred horse, which I had, was also a 'Sunfrost' bred horse. How do you a classify a horse in one bloodline when theres 4 others mixed in? Unless you're talking about certain linebred horses or bloodlines then you can't generalize. My Drifwood/Sunfrost mare totally lacked ambition and had no attitude. This horse was bred UP THE BUTT by Potter Ranch in Marana AZ (Sherry Cervi's parents) and she lacked ALL the qualities those two lines are known for. It seems ignorant to generalize a bloodline when a "King" or "Sunfrost" horse is so diluted that they have more other stuff mixed in than that. Certain qualities are bred down, yes, but in good performance horses you will find MULTIPUL great sires on one paper. How do you generalize that?

Music Mount is supposed to be really pissy hard to train horses, but I've never owned one.

HERDA can be traced back to Poco Bueno.

Biankas lines are known for barrel racing as are Lucky Straw and Jet Deck.

There are a couple other really famous sires, but I've forgotten them.

Peace, Love, and Ponies of all shapes and sizes.

good point, but some bloodlines seem to cross on other bloodlines.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.
