On #1, The best lines are he QH ones on the moms side, I think.
On #2, I'm not so sure about any of them......... usually the top sires/dams will have info on their page and a pic.

I have to agree with the previous poster. The dam with the Doc Bar, Skip A Star and Poco lines. Otherwise I am not very familiar with any.

The first one doesn't really have anything all that special until you get to Dry Doc, Skipa Star and way way back to Sonny Dee Bar. They are basically too far back to make much of a difference though. I can't find anything about the sire or dam. This horse was probably bred for color.

Second one I don't recognise much but Joe Quincy. And like with the other one it's too far back to make a difference. The sire didn't do much of anything, and neither did the dam. I would be willing to bet this horse was also bred for color only.

For Codys Blue Merle, Hank-A-Chief and Cherokee Maiden are famous Paints (Cherokee Maiden is a foundation Paint and you can read about her in the book Paint Horse Legends - More Than Color).

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

It's still too far back to make much of a difference. The sire and dam are do-nothings. I stand by my thought that the horse was bred for color.

The only thing I can add is never disregard a horse because the bloodlines are way back. There are those animals that will surprise you. There are well bred close up money winners who produce some animals that don't live up to the potential expected.

Thanks Macslady
Really I was just curious about the peds since I don't know anything about Paints. I am picking up the mare today and she happens to be bred to that stud. The owners are moving and can't keep her so I'm taking her. She could have the best horses in the world back there or in the words of Kassierae just have "do-nothing" horses back there, it wouldn't really matter to me, I'd still be taking her. Most hard working ranch horses in this country have "do-nothing" kind of horses in their background and they work just fine for what we need them to do.
If anyone else has any input I'd love to hear it

I didn't say it was a bad thing at all. My horse has do nothing parents as well. And he also has King, Skipper W, Impressive, Skipa Star, etc. Does it make a difference? Not really. Does he look or act like any of them? No. Heck he has Man o' War fairly close up, maybe 9-10 generations back. Does that make him and instant racehorse? No. All I said was that the parents didn't do anything and were most likely bred because of their color. Nothing wrong with the horse in question, doesn't make the horse crappy. My gelding was bred for color, and I love him to bits.
