Opinions/thoughts on my colts pedigree/bloodline..
Hi everybody. I'm not very good with bloodlines and such and was wondering if you guys could help me out. Here is a link to my new boys pedigree: Gray Sky Aledo Elite Quarter Horse ...Have already had some opinions/thoughts but would love to hear more :) Also kind of going off his pedigree what do you think he might be good at? Thanks ahead of time :)

So what do you think he might be good at?

DrumRunner 12-30-2011 11:32 AM

Do you have any pictures of him that you could post? It's really hard to tell you what he would be good at without "seeing" him and his conformation and looks first. There are a lot of different factors that go into it than just his bloodlines. Like one of my barrel horses. She is bred for reining and she does as well as an English horse at reining, not so great. When it comes to barrels though, she's an awesome running horse. Most of your horse's bloodlines are Western performance horses, there is some Halter blood in there but mostly stuff like working western horse. I could tell you a lot more by pictures or even videos of him working.

He hasn't been started under saddle yet and atm I don't have any good conformation pictures :( I will try sweet talking my friend into coming out to the barn with me and taking pictures today. As soon as I get them I will post them for you to look at.
