Help With Quarter Horse Pedigree- Research
 
Okay, so this is the first time I am actually buying a registered AQH and am trying to do some research on the pedigrees. The foal doesn't have a registered name as of yet- but his sire is Bye Bye Blue Isis and his dam is Pure Diamond Chance.

I recognize quite a few big names, King, Leo, Peppy, and Poco Bueno.

So I guess my main question is- to those who are familiar with lines, what potential does this little colt MIGHT have, and are their any horses in there to be concerned about?

Also! How far back does the breeding REALLY matter, as far as traits the foal may have? 9 generations, 10? Thanks in advance for the advice!!

Bye Bye Blue Isis Quarter Horse The Sire
Pure Diamond Chance Quarter Horse The Dam

On both sides they have some foundation- Leo, Poco Bueno, King, Doc Bar. But they're pretty far back and I am not sure how far back you can "count" the breeding towards potential. Does anyone see anything as far as what this colt may have potential for?

Honestly, those names are so far back in the pedigree that they would have absolutely no bearing on what your horse is today. Really, to see potential, you need to look at parents and grandparents. Did his sire and dam do anything beyond producing foals? What about his grandparents, did they perform in any discipline?

Also, if you were to post pictures of your foal, there are some conformational markers that tend to indicate an inclination to a specific type of discipline. A trained eye can usually tell the difference between a pleasure bred horse and a performance bred horse and a halter bred horse just from looking at them.

I only have one picture of the foal, and he's still very new, only a couple weeks old and the picture isnt good as far as comformation goes. I am buying the foal cross country, the gentleman lives in Iowa and I live in Maine, I've seen foals he's produced before and I liked most of them, and this was a colt that I fell in love with in the picture.

He has some running blood back there with Lady Bugs Moon and Top Moon, Go Man Go and Jet Deck. But once again its back aways. I guess it depends on your plans for him.
