Question QH Pedigree -good, bad or ugly?

I know nothing about Quarter Horse bloodlines. I'm not planning on breeding my filly, but out of curiosity, I would like to know what , if anything, her background indicates. (reining, cutting, halter, etc.) Also, if anyone knows anything about her sire and/or dam or other relatives, good or bad. I have tried to find pictures of both sire and dam, but have been unsuccesful. THANKS for ANY INFO!!!

Your horse is cow bred for sure, and looks pretty foundation to me. Big names are Two-Eyed Jack and King. Would love to see pics!

Seeing as you are so pleased with her, I won't mention the reputation of TEJ horses...

Oh, PLEASE do. I know SHe has a marvelous , calm temperament, but Do want to know good and bad

Well, let's just say according to the "grapevine", TEJ horses do not have "marvelous, calm temperaments"...

That tells you how much the grapevine knows...

I happen to love TEJ horses or at least the two we used to own. Just had to comment on the only trail horse thing. Nothing better than a good honest trail horse. :)

I have been around quite a few TEJ horses. Would not take one if they where given to me.

I think that it comes down to what each person likes and what you get a long with.

I've been around a few TEJ horses and it really depends on the individual horse. I've seen good and bad.. An ex-friend's had a TEJ bred mare who was a really good horse. She did what she was asked but she was very marish, a big time diva.. As we all know, there are good and "bad" horses in each line, it just depends. If you are happy with your mare that's all that counts..

Now, her bloodlines aren't that great. Sure she has TEJ a few times but they are spread out and there aren't really any big horses closer in her pedigree. There are foundation bred horses, such as King, far back in her pedigree and they can set up for a nice base for a horse but when buying I do look for horses closer in the pedigree. Your mare's aren't bad but they're not exactly exceptional..Which doesn't matter in the least if you love your mare..
