AQHA Pedigree Critique?

All these posts about pedigrees and famous parents makes me want to join in :)

On his father's side his great-grand-sire is Peppy San Badger (son of Mr San Peppy) and great-grand-dam is Docs Cara Lena (daughter of Doc O'Lena). His other great-grand-sire is Mr Gun Smoke.

His mom was Docs Peppy Cutter and on her side of the family he has Doc O'Lena, Doc Bar, Poco Lena, Peponita and Peppy San.

I've heard of some of these quarter horses and I'm not sure if it's necessarily because they are "awesome" bloodlines or just very common. So tell me, are they anything to write home about or just generic quarter horse stock?

I assume he takes much more after his mother (although try as I might I cannot find pictures ) as he and his maternal half brother look very much alike and neither look like their dad.

Those are all great horses but that fare back it would have more to do with what is after those horses that I would want to look at. Anything more then 2-3 generations play less of a role then what comes after then.

Also those crosses are fairly typical. Doc O'Lena/Peppy San was a very nice proven cross and there are a lot of them out there.

I'm only looking at a 4 generation pedigree and many of them are 3rd gen :)

I get what you are saying though -- fancy pants ancestors don't contribute much.

My Doc O'Lena stallion went to Fox Easter through his second dam.

Doc O'Lena and Peppy San are nice proven performance lines, most generally cutting. Though they may be pretty common lines, I would never look at papers like that and turn my nose up.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
