Thoroughbreds

THe Thoroughbred is my favorite breed! Especially racehorses (Man O' War being my ultimate fav!) I love their look as well as their speed & history.
They evolved in the 17th-18th century in England, where they were handbred to produce speed for racing. 81% of TB genes derive from 31 original ancestors, the most important being the 3 foundation Arabian sires: the godolphin arab, darley arab & the byerley terk from whom all TB's descend in the male line. The mares were chosen for their looks, build & speed.

Is that really a good thing? I mean its very illustrious in theory but in practice it makes them all sound completely inbred -- I know you get that in every purebred registery but I'm just wondering why that's a *good* thing to bring up?

Appaloosas

The coat patterns now collectively known as "appaloosa patterns" have existed for millenia. The appaloosa coat pattern has fascinated Man since the first hunters recorded its spotted image on their cave walls in what is now France. The peoples of Europe and Asia coveted spotted mounts, wars were fought over and with them, and appaloosa patterned horses were often presented as gifts to the highest rulers. Legends abound about the power, tragedy, and courage of spotted horses, from Persia's Rustam and his spotted mount Rakush, to the Blood Sweating Horses of China, to the story of the Ghostwind Stallions, told by a Native American man here on our own American continent.

The North American History of the appaloosa began with the Nez Perce (Neemeepoo) Native American Indians. Up until the association with the Nez Perce and their geographic location, the spotted horse and its various color patterns went by various names. The term "appaloosa" is thought to have been developed by the slurring together of the words "A Palousey", referring to the spotted horses from the Palouse River region.

The Nez Perce were documented to have had several thousand head of fleet, well formed horses, with some being appaloosa spotted. According to the Journal of Lewis and Clark, these horses were comparable to the finest blooded horses in Virginia. When the Nez Perce were driven from their homeland by the you.S Army, their fine horses were dispersed-- some were destroyed, some escaped to join wild horse herds, and some found new jobs with soldiers, farmers, army Indian scouts, and even circuses.

The Appaloosa Horse Club was founded in 1938 by a farmer and horse breeder by the name of Claude Thompson. This marked the official beginnings of the Appaloosa as an American breed with recorded pedigrees. He and others had been gathering what they could of the spotted horses. They began the arduous task of preserving, improving and re-creating the fine spotted horses of legend. They advocated crossing to purebred Arabians, Thoroughbreds, Morgans and other fine riding horses where necessary and possible, to refine and improve the Appaloosa.

The Appaloosa Horse Club issued its first written Breed Standard in the 1940s. Breeding rules continued to evolve. Crossing out to other breeds was not discouraged. The "Tentative" registration system was set up in the 1950s so that Appaloosas with an other-breed or unknown parent(s) could earn "regular" ApHC papers by producing a certain number of registered Appaloosa offspring.

Through the 70's and early 80's, categories were also established and refined for the previously unregisterable solid non-characteristic products of Appaloosa breeding, allowing those solids to be registered for use as breeding animals, and eventually to be showable. Crossing to other breeds became limited to registered Thoroughbred, Quarter Horse, and Arabian, and registration of breeding stallions and mares from unknown bloodlines was halted.

The Appaloosa was marketed early-on as "America's Best Rough Country Stock Horse", and seemed equally at home working stock, jumping, playing polo, and as a family mount. This trend for versatility still exists-- today Appaloosas can be found excelling in many disciplines. They are known for their family-type dispositions and for their general soundness and durability. Colors can range from solid to roan to blanketed to all-over spotted leopard.

Well there is always some dispute on this issue in every breed. The Jockey Club is actually one of the strictest registries out there as it allows NO outside blood. All horses have to be live-bred to be registered (no shiped semen) & you can't register a clone (lol, which is why they havent dug secretariat up & cloned him!)
If you look at Qh's, people always seem all gung-ho about "foundation bred"-which usually means they have the same "foundation stud" on their pedigree several times. For example, there was a stallion I found who was 99% foundation bred & he had Poco Bueno on his pedigree 4 times (& that didn't include the extended lines!).
(Little known fact:) Not sure if this still applies, but in the 1900's & beyond horses were only belived to be related if they had the same mother - not father. Which resulted in alot of "inbreeding".

Well i've always had a bit of a passion for the breed & the sport, which started when I was just a kid & kinda got outa control over the years I've spent alot of time researching the breed & racing's history (especially the horses)& even got to speak with some people who are involved with the sport (people at Northlands can be so friendly, lol. Plus a very old friend of my mom's does some training herself)
My aunt breeds paints, so I sort of convinced her a cpl years back to buy some TB mares. One inparticular that I loved was a granddaughter of Seattle Slew.
