Digging around for more information on Hickory's pedigree.

With everything going on recently I've just been playing around with my horse's bloodlines..again.. I've started with Hickory, just because he's my old man and I love his lines. I'm pretty good with Quarter Horse bloodlines especially cow bred and running bred horses..

I've said before that bloodlines are pretty important to me, I'm really fascinated by them, and really like researching each of my horse's pedigree. I've done a little more digging around with Hickory's and have recently found out more than I actually knew.. So please, feel free to add anything or critique his lines at all. I think I pretty much have obsessed about them enough and would just really like to hear more about any of the horses that interest you in his pedigree. I'm also trying to get in contact with his breeder to find out if they can email me any pictures or just really ANY information about him from his younger years.. I want to know more about his sire also..

Have at it, anything you want to add is appreciated.

His bloodline sucks.

Just kidding...

Six runs to King sort of speak for themselves. Some people refer to their horses as "King bred" with one or two distant runs, but your horse is truly King bred. Neat pedigree...

lol Well..not exactly what I wanted to hear but hey, you never know with the meanie heads on the forum! Just kidding! *Cough*..I'm not one of those at all..

He's king bred for sure, I just like hearing more about the different horses from different people..Good and bad opinions. Thank you though, I think he's pretty neat also..His personality is what wins people though, he's a brat, which I'm sure you've heard from me multiple times..

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!

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

Wow your horse has an amazing pedigree!!!
A lot of horses are backyard bred and don't have good pedigrees... But wow!!! I have only seen one horse with a really good pedigree, it's one my family used to have. Looking at your horse's pedigree, your's and my family's horse are fairly closely tied in pedigrees, but yours deffinitely has the better one!
Here is the pedigree to ours Just Super Dandy Quarter Horse

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..

And then Hickory's grandsire on his sire's side..

Thank you!! I like to think so too..

Zippo Pine Bar was an awesome horse too, completely different style from my guy's lines but awesome none the less.

Love that name! Yeah, your girl is definitely Doc Bar bred out of her bottom.. I like her bloodlines a lot, Doc Bar bred horses just seem to be really versatile and good horses when treated right/trained right. Hickory gets his feelings hurt really easy and pouts about things..
