If someone asked me two years ago what I thought of Quarterhorses... i'd have said that they were horrible, ly least like breed, and just in general put together rather ugly... but that was because I've grown up around gaited horses and all quarterhorses I'd ever seen had been put together strangly with too big or too small heads, short, thick necks, long backs, and no rear and had very short, wispy manes and tails. Yeah, can't really blame me for not liking them...
Now, though... while they're not my favorite breed, they're in my top five and i'd like to own a Quarterhorse in the future... though I do find them rather bumpy to ride, but I guess I'm just used to my smoother gaited horses. I like them and find the well put together ones very nice looking and very good horses in general. I love the ''Doc Bar'' Quarterhorses the best.
I like Quarter Horses! Being a Paint fanatic, you can guess why! LOL! There are a lot of great QH's out there, and they have made a huge contrabution to the equine world! As for that first pic there.. Very nice QH! My preferences, I like the hind quarters to be a bit bigger, but the barrel on that one is nice!
This is my QH Denny. I have no idea how he is bred. He is papered but due to the circumstances behind how I got him, I was never able to get them.
This is my Dad's QH Jake's Fajita (Pokey) He is a grandson of Doc O'Lena. This picture was taken after one of his first rides.
And this is the most current one that I have.
I do love QH but I don't particularly care for how most of the breeding is going anymore. Lots of them are being bred with the fine bones and teacup hooves with 1200 lbs of mass on them. But, there are those out there with good feet and solid bones. Those are the one's I really love.
