    If you line bred the Hancock horses you would get a thicker more muscled horse. The Gelding I just sold looks like the picture of Joe hancock. He had huge feet and feathers also. The draft blood could very well breed through to later generations.
    I don't know for certain and none of us will if that horse is a pure QH or part draft. Shalom

    Looks FQH to me. All any of us are doing is guessing though based on a couple of pics and our own experience. He's a nice looking horse whatever he is.

    Two eyed jack is a big ol boy! Lol.



    ^ that's two eyed kacks grand dam-- and grand daughter of joe hancock-- she looks smaller than two eyed jack- to be truthful.. doubt her fetlocks were trimmed for the picture she didnt have a bridle or halter path cut, lol.




    ^triangle tookie-- two eyed jacks dam n joe hancocks great grand daughter-- she got her big bone and muscle structure from a horse named 'grey badger' not from the joe hancock line and she don't have big feathers either..

    I doubt the line bred hancock horses are all too big at all-- in the picture I posted his (joe hancock) feet aint that big just not trimmed good.. and as you can see not all of his generations have his long fetlocks.



    ^ the famous- Red Man an own son of joe hancock and don't have big feet or big feathering- he's not got huge muscles or bone structore and is downhill.

    Foundation Quarter .. is my vote. The ranch type, old fashioned horses had big hooves, which is a good thing.. no hoof no horse.! don't want that 100 lb body on petite tiny feet..

    Toto I have been around QHs all my life. The gelding I posted about is a registered QH. I have his papers and he does HAVE big feet, hairy fetlocks and heavily muscled. He is 80% hancock bred. Looks like a belgian/QH to me.
    I have a mare almost bred the same way but with Te N Te added she looks very drafty and is a pure bred QH.
    Foundation QHs do not all look like little bulldogs. They don't all look the same. The ones I see bred in North and South Dakota look just like the OPs horse.
    We will never know what they horses lineage is everyone is entitled to their opinion. Mine is that he is a QH. AND I am sticking to it. LOL Shalom

    Lol me too.

    That's cool. Im not saying they can't have big feet or be uphill or even backed-- the picture posted of the other members hancock bred horse is very even backed.

    There is a way to tell the breeding of a horse through blood testing- how do you think they know your horse is 80% hancock bred?

    I respect your opinion by the way.

    Ironically, my gelding I mentioned earlier is linebred Hancock, 3 times through Blue Valentine and the rest through different sons and daughters of JH. Here he is in his summer coat.
