I think she was ok to say he's halter bred. He does have halter breeding in him.

It's OK to say any horse has halter breeding in him somewhere back in the ancestry, but that horse, although a very nice horse, is no where remotely close to being halter bred, which is self evident from both the pedigree and conformation. The QAR ranch, which bred this horse, does not breed to specific disciplines to begin with.

There is nothing particularly negative about any of that. The poster said she wasn't sure, so I was just letting her know...

Yes the Impressive Lines, which are on both top and bottom, but also his sire at least showed in halter, and his dam's sire did as well.

Challenger-

1998 Nat. High Point Appaloosa (2 yr. Oldstallions)APHCC,1996 Alberta Appaloosa Champ, 1999 AB Appaloosa Champ (3 yr.old stallions),1998 AB Appaloosa Reserve Champ (2 yr old western pleasure)

Outrageous Rock-

Michigan Appaloosa Breeder Futurity Grand Champion2-year-old; Crookston Int Horse show -Halter - 2 Grands, 1 Reserve. CrookstonInternational Grand Champ stallion. Outrageous Rock was shown at the Canadian National AppaloosaShow in July 1998 in several performance classes. He was the Reserve GrandChampion in both English and Western Pleasure.

The King of Rock was also shown at halter, and did well from what I can find.

I'm not out to lunch saying he's somewhat halter bred, but he's also western pleasure bred.

I did not mean to imply you were "out to lunch"...sorry if you took it that way, but there was no such implication. Yes, there are halter horses in his pedigree - as there are with most horses - but he is not bred for halter nonetheless, which is obvious in his conformation. Surely you can see the difference between his conformation and those that are actually bred for halter. Again, QAR does not breed for halter - or any other discipline for that matter. He is typical of QAR production, albeit nicer than most - a mixture of performance disciplines, WP, some halter and some speed, with no production objective as to ability or discipline. There is nothing negative or critical about that - it is just fact. He is at the upper end of what QAR produces - relatively versatile Appys that can be used in a lot of disciplines but generally do not excel in any one area, because they are not bred to do so. There is nothing wrong with that...personally, I will take a versatile horse over a specialist any day of the week...
