    Looking at the bloodlines gives you an idea of what the offspring may be suitable for.

    If you like the looks of the paint, go for it

    I like the paint, but I'm not very knowledgeable about the disciplines you are looking into. I like his color and he seems reasonably correct for his age.

    Foal
    My only concerns are the inbreeding in the colts past :s

    The colt is line bred on his sire's dam line, not inbred. There's nothing up close, so I wouldn't worry about anything. There's no Impressive, Poco Bueno or any of the ones that have big genetic issues.
    GotaDunQH and KigerQueen like this.

    There is actually Impressive on the stud colt actually.The dam "Impressive Morn" she is a granddaughter of Impressive.

    Ooops, I missed her. So check his HYPP status too. Never hurts, I pull a genetic panel on all my QHs, regardless if they say they're NN for something anyhow.

    You really need to narrow it down a little....the ranch classes are totally different from the last two. What do you want to do more? Sadly, you will be searching a long timefor a prospect that will do ALL of those successfully and will pay $$ for the prospect. What WILL happen is that you will try to fit a square peg in a round hole. If you want a ranch type horse....then check out the filly. The colt is just too upright everywhere. If you want to do WP and trail.....nix both of them and keep looking for lines and conformation that have PROVEN themselves in this discipline. Bloodlines DO have everything to do with....it's a reality.

    It's more of personal ranch work. Cutting our cattle and going on long journeys with them. Nothing too up there in the big bucks. The only thing I'm planning on making money with would be halter and western pleasure shows.

    From a conformation perspective, I would be looking at the first foal over the second one. Better conformation. If you are looking at the lines, I can't give you my opinion on that because I don't have the background.

    Hard to judge either one based on young foal pics,but of the 2 ,I prefer the filly,she is stronger conformationally & pedigree wise. Pics of her sire & dam I found on a website. Sire is N/N & is pretty consistent in what he produces WELCOME TO FVP STABLES - Our Stallion. Personally not a fan of the colt.... is a yearling but they have no up to date pics,those would give you much better idea of how he is maturing from the chubby foal pics. Incidently the colts sire is now a gelding....
