It is a sign of a great stallion that can reproduce himself time and time again.
You can see his ablity to consistently pass on his conformation generations after he died. I think they call that a dynasty. Shalom

Well poco translates to small on Spanish. And my gelding Dollar is poco bred and isnt very big. But he isn't hard to Train and was quite a bit more than a dime a dozen.

10% of Henny's bloodlines is the the Poco Bueno bloodline. Sure, he's stubborn sometimes. He was pretty difficult to halter break according to his breeder. Though I've not thrown anything at him that he's absolutely said "no" about. He is a quick learner and will do what I ask him. Sure, he may think differently now after his accident. He needs a reminder more often than he should, but he picks it right up again like a pro. He's an absolute love bug and will follow you everywhere. He string tested to 15 hh even, which I don't really consider short. I'd actually prefer him to fall a couple inches lower than that cause I like 'em short.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

I really attribute the PB line as one of the many good King lines actually, with the "credit" if you will going to King rather than PB. Just me, though...

I can't like from my phone or I would. Totally agree with you on that face. No doubt King should get the credit there. When I have some time I will round up some pics of some we've had from King down through the sire line, there's no doubt on the prepotency there.

never met one I didn't like, but I like a small, quick horse. My filly, who has the best mind I've ever seen on a two year old, has poco pine on her papers.

On the other hand, every doc bar horse I've ever worked with has bucked like a rodeo bronc.

You might be right Faceman about King. However the accomplishments of the get of PB have garnered him the accolades his sire wll never receive.
All those great horses with poco in their name assures that.
Lets remember that both Doc Bar and Poco Bueno were only a few generations away from being broncs themselves. LOL
Anyone reading this that wouldnt hock their teeth to have owned PB, Doc Bar? I know I would be a denture wearing fool or that everyone would call me Gummer if I had the chance. Shalom

I briefly owned a Poco Bueno grandson, named, "Super Moleo." He wasn't crazy, but he had a good trot and a rotten canter, so I sold him.

Not sure who you where talking to but they know nothing about quality horses. I had up until last year a g-daughter of PB and I have her daughter. Some of the best horses you could ever hope to own. Once they learn something they never forget it. They are not big horses but they are what a QH should be.

People who think they are stubbern or what have you are not working them. These horses are bred to work. Not only the PB in them but what they are normally crossed on are working horses. They NEED a job.

When crossed on Doc Bar horses are hard to beat in just about anything.

Yes and no. Poco Bueno added a bit of try to the king line. You see the Poco Line crosses well on Doc Bar to get some great cutters and on Hollywood Jac to get some of the best reiners. Where you do not really see the King lines from others doing this. Yes there are some but if you look at the best of the best that tract to King they 95% of the time go through Poco Bueno.
