QH lines?
So most of you have seen my little mare by now, I'm just wondering what her lines are like. Now before you guys go off about having Impressive in her lines I do know about him and HYPP please don't beat down on my baby girl about that, it's not her fault shes got him in her lines (nor is it mine I did not breed her).

Her sire: Impressive Dandy Dan

Her dam: Skip Lockette
By: Skip Alloy
Out of: Lil Spanish Locket

I'd really just like to know a little more about some of the horses in her pedigree and what they did if anyone knows and if it's respectable even for an Impressive lined horse. Thank you.

She was broke western but she seems to excell at eventing right now although she's always had an aptitude for whatever I've wanted her to do. But I can definitely tell she's been taught how to neck rein because I get lazy on trails sometimes and neck rein her lol. I'm tempted to find out what she is like in a western saddle at some point.

Thank you for the links.

Impressive had some nice enough get when crossed with performance mares. I had a son of Impressive Dandy at my house for the better part of 23 years, we just lost him last fall at the age of 27. He spent the majority of his life as a working ranch and roping horse in spite of being diagnosed with Navicular at the age of 5 (combination of those small "impressive" feet and a really horrible farrier at his former owner's place).

There are some nice names on her dam's side, but they are far enough back in the pedigree that they wouldn't have much impact on her abilities. On her sire's side, I really like the cross with the Impressive and the TEJ. I adore TEJ horses, and contrary to what many people believe, they made some really nice performance horses. Billy Allen rode a ton of them back in the 70's and 80's and opened people's eyes about that line as more than just pretty faces. I've had 2 TEJ horses in my barn over the years and I loved them both.

Has your mare (or her sire) been tested for HYPP? If not and you don't know the stud's status, you really should get her tested, just so you can positively know her status.

I'm almost positive she's N/N I'd have to pull out all of her paperwork to be sure, but I don't really have any intentions of breeding her (just fantasies of sport pony babies lol).

Thank you for more info on TEJ :)

And yeah, fortunately I haven't had many problems with her feet, although she doesn't grow heel and grows crazy amounts of toe so I have to put her on wedges :/ and (fingers crossed) her feet looked good when I x-rayed them in 2010 as part of the PPE.

I would also watch out with has been said that they put a lot of stress on their deep flexor tendon.

I am also a pretty big fan of Two Eyed Jack breeding smrobs.
I have had a few runners with TEJ breeding and they were all very nice horses.

The wedges were actually a suggestion by my vet to prevent injury because if the way her toes grow out. I also have one of the two best farriers in the area working on her feet he adjusts things as necessary on her back feet as her feet continually develop. We go between steel shoes and aluminum wedges in front but there's nothing more we can do for her long toes.
