A little farther back, his bloodlines are actually pretty good. I see doc o'lena, dash for cash, mr. san peppy, Zann par bar, Mr. Perfection, and maybe some skipper w. Those are some good solid lines but that was several generations ago too. I owned a grandson of Mr. Perfection and a son of Perfection John named Baron Von John and he won all around gelding several times at aqha shows. I think with a little work, that horse could be a really nice one. The only thing that concerns me is what will happen to him if someone like you (who actually cares about horses) doesn't take the chance. I think it would be very good experience because then you can have the knowledge of working with a problem horse under your belt. It is true that it could be risky but maybe you could work out a deal with the owners that you train the horse and take him to sale but if he doesn't bring at least 1500, they give him to you as payment. That is only, of course, if you would be interested in a deal like that. I think that I would take the risk and give a chance to a horse that otherwise probably won't have any chance at all.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
