Her sire has cutting and reining blood all over the place. Her maternal grand sire seems to be your weakest lines, but even those have the old foundation sires on the back end. Maternal grand dam is by a running stallion and out of some of the best old ranch blood out there.

Over all, I like her. What do you plan to do with her?

It's okay..Not really impressive but not terrible.

She does have a few bigger names but they are further back than I like to see when buying. Her biggest asset are the cow bred horses on her sire's line, there are only a handful of those, other than that she's a little foundation bred on her sire's line and older TB running lines. Just about any performance horse will have Doc Bar somewhere in it's pedigree. Doc Bar and his offspring because a huge thing in the cutting and working cow horse world. Everyone started breeding to those horses so they aren't really a rare find. Still nice to have though..

Her dam's side isn't really anything to note. Jet Deck is really the only horse I see that I like on that side. Oklahoma Fuel was an okay horse when it came to running but some of his offspring did better than he did. Still nothing huge though..

She's an mediocre bred horse, not bad but not really impressive..That doesn't mean she's not a good horse, she may be that but her bloodlines don't really contribute a whole lot to her, I like her sire's side but the line is better farther back. She does have a good bit of foundation horses in her sire's line and that's really what stands out for her.

Not really.. Doc Bar was a crop out, he was bred to be a race horse and failed at it, only his line went on to completely set a new standard for the cutting horse world. Other than that, the horses on her sire's side are a handful offoundation horses and older running bred horses like Lightening Bar that were TBs..

Actually, if you go just a little further back, you see Poco Bueno. I agree there is some old race blood and the foundation horses, but the foundation horses were working ranch horses where the cow blood comes from.

Her sire is a grandson of Doc Bar. I plugged her into allbreedpedigree.com so that I could look at the whole picture. Playboy Marie
