How well do you know your horse you breed?

I was thinking after smrobs grade horse thread. How well do you know your horses you breed. Im talking like blood, past problems, the way the sires foals are, the way the dams foals are. What is a good cross and a bad cross for them. Do they have a good chance of making it in what you are breeding them for?

Ill start.
My mare has old bloodlines. She has ncha money but not much, and has aqha points and is a great penning/sorting horse. She is a lenas jewels bar, and bob acre doc grand daughter. Her sire was a good cutting horse in the area, BUT his foals arnt good cutter they are way to cowy, and want to chase the cows instead of holding there line. They make amazing penning, sorting, roping horses but not cutters.
Her dam dont have alot of foals yet but they are making great roping, and working cow horses.
There historys dont have any hypp or herda. And my mare has been tested.
But if i bred her for cutting the foal may not work out and be worth as much, but i did breed her to a highbrow cat son that has aqha points in penning and sorting. And the foal will be aqha incentive fund foal. So she will be well looked for in the aqha world because of the incentive funds.

A nice all-around cross that I specifically bred for. I know some people dislike the "all-around" horse because they are usually not competitive in particular classes, but I love pattern and trail classes the most, and hopefully a little hunter over fences thrown in, so I don't mind if we don't place at the top of a specialized WP class. The all-around award checks aren't that bad, in my opinion >D

I have 2 geldings out of the same stud
AWESOME STETSON. He is half quarter horse half appaloosa. He had hall of famers on both sides. He had King Plaudit-App hall of fame, Miss Meyers-one of the few mares in the Quarter Horse Hall of Fame, Kid Meyers, and the a lot of old horses, Three bars, Leo, Impressive.
The mares are all old bred to, Leo, Impressive, King Plaudit, Skipper W, Prince Plaudit.
Then my other gelding is out of Badger, King Plaudit, Three Bars, Leo, Skipper W, Eclipse, Impressive.

Many people have sighed for the 'good old days' and regretted the 'passing of the horse,' but today, when only those who like horses own them, it is a far better time for horses. ~C.W. Anderson
