Quarter horse (two eyed jack breeding)

I bought a gorgeous 16h Two eyed bartender mare just recently but when I started telling my horse friends about it , most responded with "Two eyed jack horses are really mean" I was just wondering if anyone had heard that too!
lol I know that every horse is different but I found it odd that a number of them had given that responce!

I am not sure about that breeding but I have always belived that you can train any mean horse to be a nice one. As long as you love the horse that is all that matters.

My father thought they were a bit aggressive too. I went back to Two Eyed Jacks ranch a few years ago and met several of the horses in that lineage; I did not find them to be mean at all but they do seem to be horses that need a job, they are not what I would call kids horses. I love the way they look; Id take one in a heartbeat.

We had a grandaughter of two eye jack and the only time she was aggressive was when other horses were around but that happens with almost every horse lol but she was a complete angel when we worked with her and rode her. I even trusted her with my 5 yr old niece who was just learning to ride. Aggresiveness goes mainly how much aggression you take... but I dont think bloodlines have anything to do with it.

Are you talking about the 1961 Two Eyed Jack? He is the great-great grandfather of my gelding, who is anything but mean. My gelding is out of Sir Two Eyed and I haven't seen a single foal of Sir's that has any meanness in them. My Tommy (Pretty Fancy Two Me) is one of the most mellow, gentlest horses I've ever met, in fact he acts more like a puppy than a horse!

We own a great grand daughter of Two Eyed Jack and she is one of our most easy going mares that we have. Her babies are always highly sought after and are the first ones to go. Mare 319- Two Eyed Jack was one of the best if not the best all-around stallions of his time. He was born in 1961, on the Double H Ranch bred by Herman Mass. He earned his ROM was AQHA Champion Superior Halter Horse, with 70 Grands, 12 Reserves and 217 Halter POints. In Performance he earned 46.5 points in Western Pleasure, 2 in Cow Horse, 7 for Hunt Seat, 3 Western riding, and 6 in Reining. We really love our Two Eyed Jack horses that we have raised. They are extremely smart and love to work.
