Looking for info and opinions on AQHA bloodlines

Tell me about:

Topsail Whiz

Smart Chic Olena

Cromed Out Mercedes

I'm looking for temperament, personality, trainabilty, mental stability, intelligence, traits known to go with those bloodlines.

Any well known faults?

Thanks!

There is a nice video on you tube called "tribute to topsail whiz" ... He speaks of his ease of train ability ect.... I believe his bloodlines are of Doc Bar, correct me if I'm wrong :) The Doc bar horses I have been around have been laid back- easy- and excelled at what they have done. .
Sorry don't know much about others- but would love to learn

The Topsail Whiz horses are good minded and I do not know of any soundness problems in the line. They DO NOT have any 'cow' in them.

The Smart Chick Olena horses are very good minded. The ones that are sound stay sound a long time. I would not get a young one without x-rays. A pretty good number of them had OCD and related joint problems.

The Shining Sparks are good minded and both athletic and cowey. They are not very fast.

The Dunits are real trainable and good minded. A lot of them are low in the front end and they have very little cow in them. They do not seem to have soundness problems. Some are pretty lazy.

The Starlights are good minded, athletic and cowy but a lot of them are fine boned and have hock problems. Like the Chics, if they are sound when 6 or 7, they will stay sound forever.

We like the Colonel Freckles and Playboy horses because they are athletic and cowy and really trainable. They are bigger and better bones than some of the others. They are not quite as 'laid back' to start and probably require a little better trainers than some but we really like what they make. Soundness is not problem with them.

The Peppy Sans and Peppy San Badger horses have a lot of ability, are cowy and do not have soundness issues. Some can really buck and need a pretty good cowboy to start them. Then, they are good forever.

We love a little Doc Bar in all of them, but do not care for the linebred and inbred ones. Too much and they lose bone and size and HERDA gets to be a real problem. Doc O'Lena is resonsible for 95% of the HERDA in the cutting industry.

Thanks Cherie! I'm looking at a couple of horses that are Whiz N Tag Chex X Kachina Oak Olena lines, one Cromed out Mercedes X Shirleys Folly. They're bred to be reiners and basically I'm looking for athleticism, more that any particular cow traits.
