Bloodlines, your horses..

I thought it would be cool to start a thread to see what you guy's horses have in their bloodlines.. I have a mixed mare who has: Three Bars and Bodacious Son in her, which are pretty big. And our other horse has: Three Bars, Boston Mac, Poco Pine, & Poco Bueno in him and is an amazing WP horses.

Also, how important do you guys consider bloodlines? Should they be addressed? I love good bloodlines if I am looking for a show horse, because people see more potential in them. But other than I don't think it matters(:

I'm a bloodline-aholic. I obsess over up and coming stallions, who is hot and who is not, and it's one of the first things I look at when buying a horse. Zippo Sensation, All Time Fancy, Special Invitation, I Got Charisma, By Appointment Only, Real Bonanza just to name a few of my favorites... (APHA western/english pleasure ponies.)

My baby is I Got Charisma x Real Sweet Lady (Real Bonanza).

Bloodlines are VERY important to me..There are just so many great benefits to knowing your horse's bloodlines. From knowing if they carry genetic flaws to knowing the horses in their pedigree. It is definitely something I look for when buying and plays a big factor when making my decision, a nice pedigree is a MUST.

We have no idea about Yahzi.

I honestly am not big into bloodlines - very few of the horses I have owned have had traceable pedigrees, so I have relied on evaluating the individual horse. Were I seeking to be competitive and/or breed, I'd be more inclined to get into them.

Here's my APHA mare's pedigree. She has some decent horses in there but most are further back.
Worlds Chilly Filly Paint

I have 2 Grade geldings that are half brothers. One is a purebred Curly but was never registered, and the other is a Curly/Spanish Mustang cross.

The Curly side goes back to Ernie Hammerick who was basically one of the "founding fathers" of the ABCR (Curly Registry) and continued to breed the foundation Curlies as opposed to crossing out with Arabians, Thoroughbreds, Ponies etc like many Curly breeders decided to do. Bad Warrior who is one of the best known Curlies would have been on my purebred's papers as his dam was sired by him. He also would have him on his sire's side but I don't know how far back that would be. Neither of his parents were registered but came off of a large section of land in South Dakota. By then, Ernie was old and couldn't keep up with all his Curlies which is why the sire and dam of my boy were never registered.

I love bloodlines but I'm not stuck on them for making my decisions when purchasing a horse. I'd take an amazing Grade over a decent registered horse any day.

I really do my research when breeding though. (Not that I breed much but that part is very important to me if I'm going to breed)

him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."

Rodeo has some pretty major names in his lines, not that it means anything in his case, lol

But he has.....Gilded Time, Docs Dynamo, Bold Ruler, Somethingroyal, Doc Bar, Leo, Native Dancer, and Leo.

I love good bloodlines, but they arent a must. Our new horse, Boston, got his papers yesterday. And I was really excited. Dont ask me why but I like looking up the whole family tree!(: Boston Mac, his sire, is a world champion, superior wod champion, reserve world champion in Western Pleasure, & an ROM Halter and superior stallion who has produced many amazing horses. My mix, Charm, has several world champion cutting brothers, who arent registered, & her lines go back to some of the greatest horses of the 1900's. Bloodlines, IMO, play an important role, but the right and CORRECT training make a good horse. And I just found out that my horses are related to the main horse who played 'Hidalgo'( :
