Two Eyed Jack vs Smart Chic Olena Breeding...What do you like better?

Which breeding do you like better? These are both filly's about 2 months old. The Two Eyed Chic filly is a Smart Chic Olena grand-daughter, she is a palomino. The Nosey Josey filly is a sorrel with 4 stockings and a blaze, she is also about half the price of the other filly. Based on these pedigrees, which do you like better? (Based only on the breeding).

Thank you!

I'd say that based on lines, Two Eyed Chic is better.

I would usually go with the horse that has more Two Eyed Jack in there, but gawsh that first horse had Two Eyed Jack on there more than 5 times, and sometimes they were very close.

I like the Two Eyed Chic filly better. She has better breeding and having the Smart Chic Olena in there, if you ever decide to sell, could get you more money being as he is a king in the reining and cutting world. She also has the Zan Par Bar on her papers. To me she has way better breeding. I would get the Two eyed Chic filly.

quarter horses.....simply the best

Yea, I really think Two Eyed Chic has better breeding. They are asking $1200 for her. Is that a reasonable price?
Thank you!

I like the Two Eyed Chic much better.
We own a daughter of Smart Chic Olena. She is a multi-talented horse and can do anything we ask of her. Reining, cutting, trails, jumping, dressage, endurance, etc. She was a bit high spirited as a youngster but has a heart of gold. She wants to please and I can honestly say is the best horse we have ever owned. On Saturday she competed in a 30K Endurance training in the Alps and led the way for the Arabians on the ride!
If you want a horse with heart, intelligence and talent, the lineage is there with that filly.
Good luck.

$1,200 may or may not be reasonable. It depends on where you are located and if her sire (and dam) have a really good performance record. The sire has a ROM and qualified for worlds in Jr and Sr reining, and has some points, so he has a decent show record, but in this market, that doesn't make his foals worth over $1,000 necessarily.

She is well bred though, plus the decent sire-record, so I'd put her value at $750-1,250. If she's sorrel or chestnut, that puts her at the lower end IMO. Sorrel QHs, even well bred ones, are a dime-a-dozen...

I'd look around and see what other similarly bred horses are going for in your area, babies through unbroke 2yr olds. That should give you a better idea of what she's worth.

The Two Eyed Chic is much better bred! She is a daughter to Slide To Jamaica, who IMO is a very talented reining horse.

If that filly were in Canada I would scoop her up for sure! $1200 is not alot of money for that filly (if you were in Canada) I don't know your market there.

And there is nothing wrong with the fact that she is "just a sorrel." My reining filly is "just a sorrel" and every big time reining trainers/competitors that have seen or worked with her has just loved her.

There are 12 horses listed for sale under 1 yr old with similar breeding on equine.com.

Horses for Sale - Equine.com

Prices vary from $500 to 6,500, with a median price of $3,860 (throwing out the low and high prices). Now, MOST of these foals are some neat color, like dun or buckskin, so their prices are going to be higher. Some are also by world champion sires or top money earners (reining), so their prices are going to be higher.

A similar search on Dreamhorse.com produced 56 foals to yearlings for sale with similar breeding.
Search Results List - DreamHorse.com - Dream Horse Classifieds[]=39&form_breed_id[]=110&form_distance=&form_zip_code=&form_area=0&for m_name_position=CONTAINS&form_name=&form_words=&fo rm_position=CONTAINS&form_bloodline=Smart+Chic+Ole na&form_generation=4&form_skill_id=0&form_days=0&f orm_gender[]=Any+Gender&form_min_age=0&form_max_age=1&form_yea r_foaled=0&form_color[]=Any+Color&form_other_color=&form_min_height=0&for m_max_height=0&form_min_weight=0&form_max_weight=0 &form_min_price=0&form_max_price=0&form_min_temp=0 &form_max_temp=0&form_for_sale_yn=Y&form_sold_only =N&form_at_stud_yn=0&form_sort_by=NEW&form_rows=3 0

Prices here are ranging from $500 to $50,000, some listed as "Private Treaty". Most prices were in the $1,000-5,000 range. Many of these horses are also "colored" and "stallion prospects", so their prices will be higher. Many are also by world champion sires or top money earners (reining), so their prices are going to be higher.

Keep in mind that these are the asking prices, not necessarily the sale price.
