To those who think they are not real.

Here is that first horse, the Dun one at liberty.

Or whatever you call this. It's painful to watch this hulk stumble and drag himself around.


How majestic....
That was painful to watch.

Hard to believe he's so much bigger than Keegan.

In height and weight.

This girl is five foot five.

Wow, that looked awful. Seriously, how can they think a horse that muscle-bound looks good? And 1800 pounds?! For a QUARTER HORSE?! I feel sorry for the poor guy.
And yeah, the backgrounds are often Photoshopped in. Not to mention the fact that they cut off half his hooves. Well, it's either a bad chop-job on Photoshop, or they desperately need a new farrier.

Sometimes people forget that Impressive was sired by a Thoroughbred and his dam was over 1/2 Thoroughbred as well. He was bred to be an athlete, and many of his descendants are athletes-- its just that the "look" he passed forward was so distinctive and prepotent that more of his offspring were steered into Halter "careers". Impressive himself was not a behemoth-- only a bit over 15 hands, and although musclular, framed similarly to and not really much heavier-made than some of his TB ancestors--


Impressive's Thoroughbred sire, Lucky Bar,

Impressive's maternal grandsire, the Thoroughbred Lightning Bar,

Three Bars, Thoroughbred sire who appears three times in Impressive's pedigree (grandsire, great grandsire, and great-great-grandsire-- Three Bars was the sire to both Lucky Bar and Lightning Bar above)--

Impressive's AQHA ancestors were no "lightweights" either--

Maternal grandsire to Impressive's dam, Sugar Bars (the thrid son of Three Bars in Impressive's pedigree)

More distant maternal relative Leo,

And Leo's sire Joe Reed II--

This is the look that I love...

Yes, I don't like them overly stocky like that dun, but Impressive and his sire and grandsires are AWESOME. I just love a heavy built horse, lol. Impressive was a very "impressive" looking QH.

I love that look too of the foundation QH's. Hoping someone knows this answer... I have heard that in the not so far future, that AQHA is to stop registering Impressive bred horses?

NO not Impressive bred horses but H/H horses are no longer eligible for registration. Now they are going after the N/H horses so as long as the horse is N/N it can be registered.

Hopefully that will remove HYPP out of the gene pool.

My horse has Impressive bloodlines. Its his 3x great grandsire, I think. His great great grandsire is Noble Tradition and someone told me that was his best foal. Is that true?
My boy, Ricky, is tall and a little bit stocky. He stands at 14.1 and he's only a yearling.
He's negative for HYPP, but call me paranoid every time he shakes or shivers, I always watch him to make sure it stops.

There's his pedigree, sorry to hi-jack but do those Impressive lines carry a lot of HYPP?
