That is exactly my gelding above.. He's right at 14.1 hands and a little tank..He's 22 now, he was 21 in the pictures I posted.

I believe the sorrel horse on anything to do with AQHA is what was supposed to be the "perfect Quarter Horse"
I read that bit of information somewhere.



I just have to share my mares similarity to that horse...



Don't mind her fatness... but she even has the back socks.




Now, as for disposition wise:
A horse that can:
Be loaded into the trailer at 6am
Trailered on the gravel roads to a pasture round-up,
Tackle deep coulees and rocky hills with ease
Kick it into high gear over the rough terrain to cut off some cows
Sort cows from calves in the branding pen
Drag calves all day
Come home
And still have plenty of gas left to clock a smokin hot time on barrels
And then do it all again the next day.

That's what I like, anyway.

That is a good looking mare for sure!

The girl gets any bigger of a forearm and she's going to be whoopin' on some studs! Haha.
I love her. Great looking mare and I bet she's got a pretty pedigree to back up those pretty looks.

Thanks guys :) She's my little 15.2hh powerhouse! I want to see how fit I can get her this summer, the past year I havent used her much... too many greenies to ride!

She's a winning team roping (heading) rodeo horse, fastest time I got with her was a high six/low seven. I've barrel raced with her in a rodeo or two and placed, and she gets used as a ranch horse too.

I know a lot of people are dead-set against breeding Impressive bred horses, but I think I really want to breed this mare, or her older half sister.

Docs Queen Cutter Quarter Horse


I saw a Dry Docs Cutter yearling gelding at a sale last fall, he had a bigger hip than most of the 2 year olds selling that day.

I actually like Impressive horses if they aren't built like halter horses. We had a son of Impressive Dandy (by Impressive) and he was a heck of a ranch and roping horse. Unfortunately, he did develop navicular at a young age, but it was caused by a terrible farrier that kept him trimmed all wrong for several years.
