"own son/own daughter???"

I have a really really dumb question, but until I moved to Nebraska, I had never heard horses advertised or described as this.

Sometimes in horse ads someone will say the horse they are selling is an "own son of... name horse here" for instance "own daughter of two eyed jack" "own sone of sonny bar dee"

What is that supposed to mean, "own son/daughter?"

In my experience its just a fancy way of stating that the horse is that sire/dam's daughter/son..

That horse is a daughter and son of the said horse.....Usually it is Own Son/Daughter of big name horses or very well known horses they are talking about. So it is what it says....own son or daughter of the horse.

Okay, that's what I thought but I was just wondering why they didn't say "Sired by...two eyed jack" or whatever.. that's the way I'm used to it being said, LOL.

Dang, I have used that term....I am going to stop now. I just copied what everyone else was saying.

It's funny, I have been here a year and couldn't figure it out ha ha. Where I come from we say "Out of" to signify dam and "sired by" to signify sire. I couldn't figure out why people weren't advertising sires and dams but yet they kept saying it was their own horse!
