My mare's pedigree...do you know her bloodlines?

I saw on another thread someone asking about their horse's bloodlines...what traits/disciplines they are known for, etc.

Thought it would be fun :) So here is my mare's pedigree...interested to find out what people know!

Well I know that the Norfleet line is more to western pleasure along with the Eternal. My mare has Eternal in her and she is definitely built for WP. Impressive is halter, but they also can be pretty much all around. The Coosa lines are pretty much western pleasure too.

Don't know about some of the others. What do you use her for?

Not so much, western pleasure easily can be used for hunter jumper if they have the height. My mare had been used english hunter and for jumping before I bought her, she moves easily into either discipline. The QH is that versatile breed.

For the most part she is halter bred. Eternal sun was a runner who sired everything from an NRHA Open Futurity Champion to halter point earners and champions. My stallion is a g-son of Eternal Sun Bars by Eternal Sun.

Cossa is all halter along with most of the other horses in the pedigree. Then toss in a bit of Sunny D Bars. Again halter but also has some nice WP horses with that line in there.

and forgive my ignorance as I'm still fairly new to the horse world (been riding for only 4 years now and been a horse owner for 2) :) but...what is meant by "halter horse"?

I have a general idea but love learning more details especially when it has to do with my horse :)

A halter horse is a lead and feed type horse. They are show at halter and judged on their conformation. They are not ridden at all for a halter class. It is all on the hose.

Halter horses are shown from the time they are yearlings. They are massively built and most of your top winners do nothing but that. They often remind you more of cattle than horses with their heavy muscles that are prominent in the shoulder, top of the legs, rear end, flat wide backs and teeny heads. They are generally stallions although there are mares too. Some are trying to move away from it, but that won't happen until judges stop awarding the "ready to ship to market" horse build with top prizes. That is just my humble opinion.

They generally don't become anything more than a halter horse that of course will be bred to produce more halter horses.

Wow thanks for the info, that's really interesting! Well, here's my "halter bred" pony Coosa's Playgirl (whose show name I actually changed to "Hoofprints in the Sand" since when I bought her, her barn name was "Sandie") ;)

I can kinda see the whole big body/little head thing that was mentioned though...she wears a cob bridle but a wide tree saddle ;) She's built like a tank, but in a small package...and her hooves are like ROCKS! She has never had to have shoes, they are such tough little pony feet!!
