Genetics in quarter horses

Here is a stallion that was one of the founding horses that the quarter lineage traces back to. Information on this horse can be found at the site Americas horses daily.

Oh heck.. thought I put that on there. His name is Old Fred. It was on the Americas horse Daily. One of the quarter horse sites. I first saw it in 'Cowboy Magazine. The issue talked about how quarter horses change America or such,dont remember the exact article name, it also talked about Traveler and a few other of the horses the were the basis for the Quarter horses, and I think it said this horse was one of the Sires in Peter McQue lineage. People usually just go back to the horses that became Registered as Quarters, and don't go back to the horses prior the registry. ;) Its interesting info for those into genetics.

Dont use the bottom link, it does not come up to what I saw earlier.. must have been some more to the link that I missed. You can also search quarter horse legends. Look at these horses too .. Baldy, Della Moore, Colonels smokin gunn (gunner), Midnight , and Waggoner.

Another one people don't think about is Plaudette - Plaudette Quarter Horse

She was the dam to AQHA foals as well as Bright Eyes Brother whose sire is also an AQHA horse. Bright Eyes Brother Appaloosa

Here are a few other foundation sires:

This is Yellow Jacket, he was a noted match racer and became one of the most influential sires in the industry. Some of his most noteable sons are Cowboy P-12, Blackburn, and Strait Horse.

Check out the description on the Plaudette mare in her history, Mare by Old Fred.
Listed as Quarter but look at the color PAL APP RO .
So these colors are genetic in the Quarter horse. So the crooked jagged white marks mean sabino ? Or is that rabicano ? Hmmm..
