I was just looking through some old bloodlines on all breed pedigree and looking at some of the pix. Oh how things have changed in the QH world. What we consider to be attractive now was unimaginable back in the old days and what they thought was the cream of the crop back then is completely different from what we have now I also thougt it was interesting to look at the picture bloodlines of some of todays leading sires and just see how many of their ancestors would not be considered good breeding stock at first glance these days.

And of course, the always controversial Impressive
Impressive Quarter Horse
It is amazing how many champions came from such humble beginnings. Some of the horses in early bloodlines were just downright ugly, conformational nightmares.
