Funny pedigree stuff...

I needed to laugh so I decided to look through Lacey's dad's pedigree and see if there are any seriously funny looking horses that went into my poneh. He did not disappoint.

First off there's "Bad," a 1929 mare. First off, her name is super funny but then when you look at her picture, prepare to laugh out loud.
I couldn't find the picture to link to so here's her page. Scroll over the little picture thingy up by her name to see the picture.

Bad Arabian

Then there's "Elegantka", a 1923 mare. She's not horrible deformed or anything, I just laughed when I saw her picture after reading her name. I was expecting something pretty lady-like but she's not so much.



And then, my all time funny looking favorite: Matih, a 1922 mare. Do you think she could be any more awkward looking? Evidently she's a pretty typical "Muniqui" arabian. I guess the desert people who bred that type of Arabs were going solely for speed and had to leave beauty by the wayside or some such thing (here's the link, in case you're interested: Arab Families (1950) )




This guy was less funny looking and more just random: Bazleyd, a 1928 stallion. He was doubled registered as a TWH because he was evidently gaited. WHAT?? Haha That was one of the funnier things I've ever heard. Here's a link to his page, I guess that picture is of him gaiting. Who knew? Haha

Bazleyd Arabian

Good times. Very good times.

Does anyone else's horse have some funny skeletons in their closet? Feel free to post lots of funny pictures. The funnier the better.

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Oh my goodness, this killed me! Whoever named "Bad Arabian" was pretty clever, because he looks more like a TB! I would take great pride in such a unique pedigree. Honestly, there's nothing quite like it :)

Newminster Thoroughbred

Hermit describes him well. I just can't believe he is a Tbred.

I wonder what this one was bred to do.

Front end of a Thoroughbred, back end of an arabian, and I'm not sure what's happening in between...

This one looks like a warmblood...

EEK! I can't believe there are so many!! Oh well. I take solice in the fact that they are all pretty far back there. Could you imagin if one of the owners of these horses came on to the forum asking for breeding advice? I don't think that any of these horses should have been bred, but I am darn glad that they were or I wouldn't have the horses I love right now...no matter how fugly their ancestors were.
