My rescue foals bloodline...

Hello everyone! I had posted in another thread that I had rescued a mare and her now 17 month colt not that long ago. Unfortunatelly I had to put Callie, the mare, down due to a very severe founder.

I found out the name of Jack, the colt's, sire. I don't really know much about what counts as good bloodlines in Quarter horses. Would any of you mind looking at the sire's pedigree and giving me an idea on how good of a bloodline this colt has? An honest opinion is wanted. If you think he is only a so-so please let me know.

It would help to know the sire's full registered name as well as breed. Jack sounds like just a barn name.

Sorry I thought I had added the link to the sire pedigree. My bad it's been one of those days...

Nothing really stands out to me. There is some Hancock breeding which is a more stocky foundation type quarter and if you go back a little farther I found Skipper W who sounds familiar to me. There are also a LOT of grade/unregistered horses in there though too.

Ok that's what I was thinking. I did notice that if you go back more than the 5 generations it shows if you click on the desciption it seems like he had a lot of racing QH in there. Kinda funny because the sire is from a cattle ranch...

That is common. You may also find some TB in there too as a LOT of Quarters and Paints also have TB. Cinny is a Paint and he goes back to Man O War and other great race horses LOL but he was bred for Reining and Ranch work.

There are some good famous horses far back, I'm not very familiar with US QH bloodlines though so I can't say anything about the up-close bloodlines... which are what matter.

There's a lot of Joe Hancock in him but it's some way back in his lines, I'd be interested to see what's known about the horses closer up?

I would have to do some in depth research on most of the horses because I'm just not familiar with QH bloodlines. I know that the sire was a good ranch horse and that his other offspring were really good ranch horses and that he apparently throws an excellent personality. I'm trying to track down some of the owners of Jack's half siblings and see if they can tell me anything.

Well, if it's a really good ranch horse then I figure it can't be too badly bred. Just because the horses in the bloodline may not be famous doesn't mean they're not good horses, especially if they throw a consistent type.

That being said, close up famous genetics are more likely to produce a truly spectacular horse... but do you want this little guy to be spectacular, or do you want him to be a fun horse to do some ranch work on?

I want him to be a good consistent trail horse, to be able to pull a cart, maybe do open shows/ maybe halter classes.

Callie was a grade horse but I had ridden her multiple times at the previous owners place before they fell on hard times and she was a fantastic trail horse! We were riding once and a train went by less than five feet away because we needed to cross the tracks and she barely flicked an ear at it. That is the kind of personality I'm already seeing in Jack. If he sees something scary and it doesn't hurt him the first time around then the next time he sees it he hardly pays it any mind.
