    17 hand Quarter horse? Are you sure he's not Appendix, because I really don't believe QHs get over 16 hands. The TB blood would make him taller.

    I will have a pic up tomorrow and he is full blooded and registered with the AQHA he's been bred with a world champion producing mare once. The syud horses sired by hercules are smaller than him but BJ and him had a filly and she's big too she's 7 months old and the size of a yearling she was just weaned. Hercules has been out to pasture for 10 years and still a gentle giant Mike the guy we are boarding him with broke him when he was 2 or 3 and he said that Hercules was so gentle that it took his uncle marvin running behind him to get him to trot. We are getting him for the tiny price of $400!

    What are your plans for this guy? Has he been rode or bred since he was 2-3?

    I think that is a big topic of debate in the QH world as a lot of people feel that the rules on registering TB crosses is diluting the original traits that the QH was bred for. My logic reasons that the QH is a mutt breed to begin with, having come from the cross of TB's and various native breeds. I have seen some very, very large quarter horses. (Even though, I can't even fathom 17hh. WOW!)

    I'd be curious to know more about your stud's lines. I'm no expert on genetics at ALL, but doesn't it make sense that somewhere in the stud's lineage, he inherited the height from his TB ancestors, and the trait just stuck with his line? Is that possible?

    Btw, I'd love to see him as well. I bet he's stunning! I love QH's more than anything! =)

    I'll can't get the pic off my phone so i'll try to get my cousin to email it to me from hers so it ends up on my ipod. And wee are going to stud him out its a co ownership with the barrel racing pro My dads friend Mike Sebree. And today we are getting 2, 2 week old AQH fillies they are orphans and they were on their way to slaughter. A man saved them and traded our neighbors and our neighbors gave them to us!

    What is your horses registered name? I'd love to be able to see the bloodlines that went into creating him.
