    I've some tons of research. The only sound he makes is a loud clear airway sound. No whistle or gargle, just loud intakes of breath, kind of like a human gasping

    Congrats on your beautiful boy! And from how you describe him, it sounds like you got a great deal on him! I think out here in Oregon he'd have cost more.

    For anyone interested here is the pedigree:

    Dashinisasurething Quarter Horse

    Lots of nice nice race breeding there.
    If you want to know for sure about the breathing noise, you will need to have him scoped.

    I'd have a vet check it out to be sure he's 100% healthy and able to handle being worked. Breathing hard from being out of shape is one thing but jus loud breathing could be something more serious

    Aest, you are entirely right, those are 100% race bloodlines. 75% lead right back to TB's within 2 generations. There are a lot of ROM races and some hall of fame QH race horses in there.
    I wonder if he was tried at the track, Rusidio downs? , and then sent back to the farm to be sold as when his race career was done? I see no race stats on his petigree but that may not mean anything. He may of gone through all the training and then it was decided he just wasn't worth the gamble. Who knows? In light of what you have said about him so far a PPE is a must. Ask the vet if he thinks those back ankles warrent an x-ray considering how straight they are and what you want him to do. He needs them to deeply flex in order to dig in and make the turns.

    So, I'm a bit confused... Did you actually buy him or is he currently on trial?

    Is he in shape or has he gone a little while without any work? Does it seem like he's breathing hard or just loud?
    Amp- they allow full TB into the QH registry with open arms. Your horse could be as much as 95% TB and still be a papered QH. A lot of registries welcome Arabians and TB's to keep the gene pool vigorous.
