About bloodlines I've learned most people don't pay attention to lines outside their own chosen discipline, myself included. I mentioned Dash Ta Fame once to a western pleasure rider, she didn't know who he was. She names off some big western pleasure names I've never heard of.
I get what your saying though, most horses I buy I never get compliments on by some people then others absolutely love them. Can't please them all. My gelding actually comes from very nice parents with a nice set of papers, but had many people say he was to small, to thick and solid, and Dinky's Red Man Horses aren't speed horses, he won't be a 1D horse. He's on his way to becoming one. My mare isn't bred for barrels but she makes a good horse, though I get the I don't like Impressive bred horses alot. My 2 year old has already been picked apart in 3 weeks, he's pig eyed and has a long neck and big withers blah. He's skinny, and yes he is kinda pig eyed. But I think he's going to make a great horse. Take it with a grain of salt. Most people who put my horses down I wouldn't ask for advice on one anyway. But when the trainers and the people who win and can pick out a good horse tell me they like my horses, that just makes up for all the insults
