>>>> I guess I should clarify that when I say Impressive bred I mean a horse that has him in the pedigree. That's what everyone around here calls it too.
OK, so you feel that ONE occurance of Impressive in a pedigree makes a horse "Impressive-bred"?

>>>> the biggest thing i dislike about Impressive bred horses is that when they blow up, they BLOW UP. I know from experience with several of them. its a well known fact that many Impressive bred horses have a screw loose, especially when crossed with certain lines. i will not even touch a directly bred offspring of Impressive. every one i have met, and this is talking 20 plus, have been nuts. thats JMHO and experience though, and take it with a grain of salt if you wish.
So the horse has Impressive, once, back a ways in its pedigree, and you know for sure that its Impressive ancestry is the reason for the horse to be nuts?
What do you mean by "directly bred offspring of Impressive"? As opposed to... what? Some sort of indirect descendant? Or.... please explain.
