When I got my quarter horse filly almost 5 months ago, I was told she was a purebred quarter horse. Both Dam and Sire were purebred quarter horses.
Her Dam is registered as Hanks Red Ace, and I did some research and found some thoroughbred in her 5th or 6th generations, and then, going back to the 1700's, some arabian.
Would she still be qualified as purebred, as up to her 4rth or 5th generations back are all quarter horse? At least on her dams side, I do not know about her sire, but assuming something like the same thing.
Should I call her a purebred quarter horse anyways, if people ask if she is a purebred?
I am really wondering.
Also, I believe this is the right horse, I found a link to on this forum. I will be running it by the previous owner to make sure though, but again, assuming this is the right horse.
