Don't mean to hijack...

I do not inted to hijack, so if anyone could help me on this you can pm me...

I don't give a rip about pedigrees other than it is neat to learn about history from them. That being said, My girl Josie was touted to me as a "foundation" qh when I got her. The person seemed so proud of that, that I just smiled and nodded. Lol

But after reading this one thread you posted on and doing some research, I was just curious to know if these ancestors of my girl are true foundation?

Will he do the job you want him to???

He looks good.

At 10 years old he is not close enough to "foundation" to talk about.
Well, he's a gelding and I'm pretty sure breeding "with him" is illegal in most states - so I certainly hope that isn't he OP's plans

I agree with everyone else, mostly. Being a gelding, the bloodlines won't really matter except to give you an idea of "where he comes from". He looks very solid to me, and his color is gorgeous.

I'd look at his temperament and make a decision on that. Does he fit what you are looking for personality wise? Do you think he'd be a good match for YOUR personality?

I can't speak toward prices anywhere else, but a trail horse here that needs a refresher would probably go for about $800-1000 with wiggle room. I'd negotiate based on how much time you feel it would take to get him to the point you want him. =)

Nothing near enough to be relevant.

My favorite thing about them though is that they make good jacks of all trades. My old mare (that my daughter has now taken over) was a formally trained reiner and did very well at it but she was my all-arounder and did everything from wp, hus, jumped (with cleats in her sliding plates), speed events and has always been the first pick to put a green rider on when we hit the trails.
I so miss this type QH! It's hard to find them like this anymore.

I agree. I get accused of being old fashioned with what I like in QHs on occasion but when something works, you don't change it. I like my handy all-arounders. I've got one on the way, if I get another colt he won't be staying, come on up and get him

I would LOVE to! I have secretly drooled over your horses for a while. Hmmm I wonder how Rascal would feel sharing the pasture with a rambunctious little yahoo? Knowing him, he'd have a blast.

OH, and their isn't a darn thing wrong with wanting a nicely built, well mannered, well trained, jack of all trades, smart, quick thinking little ole hoss!
