Yes, he was a Halter and Wastern Pleasure horse - inducted in the AQHA Hall of Fame in 2007.. His offspring went off in different directions though, from barrel racing, ranch work, to Western Pleasure.

I know our big TEJ gray horse was the nicest horse around and loved everyone. No one rode the other one buy the ex and he always seemed so nice. I did see Monty at the fair last night, the guy my ex sold him to after our divorce, he said "Jack" was a rank rodeo bronc bucker and he didn't keep him. Said he got hurt real bad when he got tossed and ended up in the hospital.

So out of the two we had one good one and one that was good at our place.

I've ridden a couple, one that fit the reputation of being cold backed and could buck like no other when it suited his fancy and one that was darn lazy. My grandpa used to say that was one line he didn't care for, he didn't think they had enough between the ears. Is it true? I don't have enough experience with them to say.

I believe it was a question about my horse' bloodlines that started this. (Pedigree- good, bad or ugly) My mare is TEJ line, and she is WONDERFUL - calm, willing and very sweet and also very athletic. However, since TEJ is back several generations, as I assume is the case with most of the horses mentioned, there is plenty of other blood in her, too. Attributing any or all of her temperament to one horse several generations back seems a little illogical to me since there are so many other horses contributing their traits. Just a thought.

^^That's what I think about as well. Most the horses my Dad rode were either direct offspring of TEJ himself or of his son, Watch Joe Jack (who was the sire of both the horses we owned). We've talked a lot about the horses he used to ride back in those days and he said he mostly liked the TEJ bred horses.

So much of a horse's temperament comes from the dam side as well.

It did but just out of curiousity. Every line, like every breed, will have it's good and bad :)

I imagine what they are crossed with makes a big difference, like mentioned above.

Sometimes two goods don't always make better!LOL

Most definitely. The one I rode that was the gnarly bucker was TEJ & Hancock bred....pretty sure that being cold backed was inevitable with that cross

My mare goes back to TEJ. Skip Autumn Summer Quarter Horse

She's too lazy to buck. She's a great mare for me though I can see where she would be too lazy for others. We just trail ride so a bit of laziness doesn't bother me.
