    She is very pretty and she has really filled out since even your first pictures last August. I noticed "Three Bars", and my QH "Ro Go Bar" (1982-2009, RIP) had a similar build. He was a grandson of "Go Man Go."
    If she is like my QH she should have a very pleasant sitting trot. But he was built downhill and couldn't really jump--more of a fast pleasure horse. He was also very lazy, but, after some reassuring by fawning teenage riding students he became a wonderful and quiet babysitter horse, at 15'3hh. I agree with waiting to back until next year and take it slow. Ro Go Bar had those TB legs and big feet. You wouldn't want to work her hard until the bones are set. =D

    Nice to know other people have had success with similar type bloodline horses!

    Queenie is gentle, laid back, "honest" and very smart. I should say incredibly smart with an attitude to please. She also seems like she could really run. At first I just thought she didn't have the attitude to run, lazy and what not, but others have suggested that she just needs to get the hang of running/balance etc maybe just maturing a little more... Which I think might be her case. For an example, I've been ponying her off of Red for a couple of months, at first she didn't want to trot or run very much, was very bracey and maybe a little unsure. Now she is right where she's supposed to be, light on the lead line and canters right along side of Red. She still doesn't have the quick start like Red has or can go as long, but she is showing improvement. :)

    I measured her today, she's 14hh and 1/2"...Do you think she'll grow to 15.hh? She has been a slow grower, just curious to see what your opinions are. The horse standing next to her is 15.hh.

    There is still time, or so I'm hoping, lol. My March 2011 model is currently 14.2 and my long legs could really use 15hh...

    I'm hoping so as well, I see a couple other AQHA two year olds are only 13.2-3hh so maybe she isn't too far off being 2 1/2yrs (which would add 1-1/2")? Anyway I'm doing my part by feeding her, she needs to keep up her end :). Supposedly her sire throws 15.0-2hh foals, and I don't know what her dam throws, but assuming since her dam is a quarter horse and since she's got TB in her bloodlines that I would think her dam would be at least 14.3-15.hh?

    Anyway we shall see.

    Judging by her pedigree and height and if she puts alot of muscle on, you could look into cutting if that sparks your interest... I think she will mature around 14.2

    Thanks for your opinion, on the good side of things I can probably get up on her fine, on the bad side 15.hh under is not very popular if I were to sell her. Oh well time will tell. I can't wait until spring/summer to try her out!

    Anyway nothing to do with anything, but I re-measured Red, the gelding she is standing next to, and he is 15.2 1/2hh instead of the 15.hh I thought him to be (last time I measured was when we got him, he was 6yrs at the time).
        01-15-2014, 03:27 PM
    So...she is NOT 14.1/2 hh...My math errors! She is 4' 10" which 4'x12=48", +10" =58 divided by 4"=14.5 which is 14.2hh correct? For what ever reason my brain transferred the 14.5 to be 14.1/2...Now I'm wondering if I measured the gelding right .

    Anyway if that is correct she may just reach 15.hh!
