Just curious as I don't know the whold back story but do you have any info on the dam and sire? Were they point earners, out of point earners etc or what else was it that drew you to this cross.
I am a big fan of the Poco Bueno bred horses as most that I have seen are bigger bodied good bone and very versatile on the ranch or in the arena.
Have a good one!
I'm in the process of learning more about his sire and dam..I did figure out recently that his sire, while not "huge", was an Superior Performance horse , AQHA High Point Performance Horse, ROM Performance, NCHA money-earner, and NCHA Open Super Stakes finalist.. Not anything huge, but still impressive to me..Then of course you have Son ofa Doc who was an amazing horse, produced awesome offspring..Google him, I can't even type it all out..It just keeps going back like that to foundation horses..Three Bars is the only horse who "threw off" Hickory's foundation breeding. He's still 87% foundation but it would be higher without Three Bars in the mix, but then of course I wouldn't have my Doc Bar and other horses...I am a HUGE Doc Bar offspring fan..huge, huge fan..
Not much information about his dam yet, still working on that one, but she's by Doc's Hickory was another great horse..His offspring went on to do great things also..
Hickory's dam's sire..Docs Hickory
And then Hickory's grandsire on his sire's side.. Quarter Horse Directory - Son Ofa Doc
He is about as King bred as my mare is Doc bred.
She is also linked to him in the Chickasha lines I believe. I was recently looking into a Doc Hickory gelding but passed on him. He's nice, though. I'll do some deeper looking when I get back on an actual computer instead of my phone. I think your gelding has several links to my mare other than the normal QH links
That's pretty neat, our kids are probably related then.. Do you have your mare on allbreed? Just curious and nosey, love seeing where they meet..Love to see pictures as well!!
