Has anyone traced their horses bloodlines really far back and gotten any surprises? My Morgan wasn't really much of a surprise because theoretically ALL Morgans eventually trace back to the ORIGINAL Morgan...Justin Morgan. But I mean, you are just goofin one day because you have time and you are looking back far in your horses bloodlines and you almost fall off your chair from the unexpectedness.
This happened to me tonight. Cinny traces back to Man O War! I know it's probably kind of stupid and whatnot because a lot of horses probably trace back to him, but WOW.....I was kind of shocked that my Stock Paint's no name Sire and Grandsires...all paints....eventually lead to Man O War.
And it's 11pm and though I want to announce to my barn friends "hey guess what I discovered" it's really too late....so cookies to you for reading this and carrots if you don't think I'm totally batty for thinking this is really awesome...
I think next time I see him I will bow down and kiss his royal hooves!
