You found her!! LoL, how?

Yeah, on Belle's papers, her "grandpa" is a TB and it says "TB" and also has a "T" in front of the registration number.

So you CAN register the cross of two appendix horses as appendix? I'm not breeding Belle, just curious. I love the look of appendix QH's, and so far from what little I've gotten to know of Belle, I love her temperament and sense.

LoL, there's just something about that "splash" of thoroughbred thrown in there, IMO.

The splash of TB is what is "in style" these days! I went to the AQHA website and went into the members area and looked her up!

LoL, uh oh...I tend to be wary of things "in style." Are people breeding too much thoroughbred back in, in your opinion?

Also, were you able to get any lineage on Ritz? On AllBreed, it only lists her parents.

I will go back and look.

I like the old QH look as far as build and facial structure go's but I do kind of like the size w/ the TB....

I personally am not a fan of the newer looks of some QH's the halter horses, the ones that look like warmbloods or TB. I love the look of the old school QH's.

Just out of curiosity, could you post a picture of these newer TB looking QHs and then a picture of the old style QHs?

This is a QH that at least to me looks like a TB.

This is a foundation QH the top two photos have the look of the breed.

Allot of early QH did have some degree of TB blood in them but not to the point that they do today.

I have to say, I love them both. I prefer the appendix look, and my boyfriend prefers the foundation type, but I think they're both lovely. Definitely a difference, though. I also think it's really important to maintain the "foundation" body type so that it doesn't die out. Although, I don't think there's much chance of that with as many fans as there are.
