This has been an interesting read. Our mare has Poco Bueno on both sides...5 generations back. She also has Doc Bar as her great grandpa on her Dam side.

I would say she is an extremely intelligent and versatile girl (Our trainer agreed). She has no vices and loves to work. She can be a challenge sometimes with her young rider (I attribute it to miscommunication from my 10 year old)...but when Kitten gets her cues right, Acey and she are an amazing team.

Put me down as someone who likes Poco Bueno horses. :)

I like the PBs as well as his lesser known stablemate Pretty Buck. I have a mare bred with both and she is great as a heel horse, my daughter's drill team horse, and she can do all the cow horse/reining stuff with ease. She will, when horsey, kick out once when warming up....but she is solid, solid. I also am starting a Perllino daughter of hers bred to a PB stud....she is gona be nice.

I love PB horses... We had a horse that traces back to him at least 3 times... And I imagine a lot of people here know who Zippo Pine Bar is... Well, I just took a look at his pedigree. His dam is Dollie Pine, who is sired by Poco Pine, by guess who... Poco Bueno :)

Not exactly a representative sample, I know, but I have a PB/Poco Lena horse and from what I hear, he's typical of that line.

Classic old style QH confo - a witherless brick with legs, and a very broad back that takes an extra wide tree. Sticks at 14.2, rides much bigger. Small head with a kind eye and the tiny cat ears, wears a cob sized bridle. if you look at photos of him, photos of PB and photos of Poco Lena, you can definitely see the resemblance. The alpha horse in the herd, but quiet about it, doesn't kick or bite to make his point, a look is enough. Will try to cut or herd the tractor and the golf cart when they're in his paddock. Dead honest, will do anything you ask to do, all day long.

Smart, smart, smart - probably a little too smart for the taste of some riders and trainers. (I always think "stubborn" is code for "horse is smarter than the trainer") Adjusts brilliantly and appropriately to the skill level of his rider - will pack a beginner, take care of a tentative rider, and can be a blast for an experienced rider.

Now, this is the only PB bred horse I've know this well, but based on other's descriptions, he has a lot in common with other PB horses.

Based on him, I'd have another in a New York minute.

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 have to say i was feeling out, because the first horse i bought was a PB. And my trainer kept telling me not to buy a baby a PB, or a mare... I got all three. Now It is really nice to here about some people who love and own PBs. I am like the only one in my town that really ones one. Most go to the sale then to the meat factories! :/

I really proved everyone that knew me wrong. They said they buck, Have stubbornness, and don't ever forgive you for anything you do! Personally I like mares better, but thats just me. She is three, I can get on her back, well jump on her back, ride her for about 15 mins, then get off. (Because she is just learning.) ;) Her blood line go back to Doc Bar. ;) And I have never had any problems from bucking, biting, kicking, or anyting really. She is just so amazing. She loves me, and listens really well. I am really hoiping that when she is older she will make a really good riding horse for me. I have done all her training myself, and I just had a trainer come out and say that I did really well and she has the mind of a four year old... haha A whole year ahead!!! :P Well the thing is, is she is a Doc Bar and I don't have any regrets!

Success breeds contempt and many many horses now carry the blood of poco bueno. Poco means small bueno means good his name aptly described him.
Ignore the naysayers remember success breeds contempt and I have heard a few arabian owners complain about several very prominent sires in our breed. Shalom

I have a poco. 2 I believe I don't understand the whole importance thing as I bought a colt so the boys could learn to work with large animals and love horses. Wish someone could explain mines pedigree meaning

My mare has Poco Bueno 5 generations back - can be stubborn but would NEVER do anything nasty. She's one of the kindest and most intelligent horses I've ever had the pleasure of riding, which is why I bought her. She's rather large as well, 15.1 and 1200 lbs. Never bucked, reared, kicked or offered to bite.
