New Mare Pedigree Analysis
I got this mare about a month ago and I know nothing about pedigrees and was wondering if someone could tell me a little about hers. I'm not super familiar with big names and horses. Any info is appreciated! Here is the link to her allbreeds pedigree.

Jackie Bee! I love him. I've known a few horses that have him in their lineage and they are tanks, so stocky. I love it. He's an AQHA Hall of Famer, and a big name halter horse. She's got inbreeding though, which is often practiced. But I'm not a fan of it at all.

Looks like she's slightly linebred Jackie Bee but outcrossed on her dam's sire line. I wouldn't necessarily look for another Jackie Bee horse to breed her to but I wouldn't call her inbred either. From the pedigree I'd expect a pretty substantial looking mare. Pics?

Paco bueno, Wimpy, Three bars, are names that pop out for me.

The famous names are all back 4 generations or more. I put the sire in Google and did not get much for performance etc.

FWIW, the names you want to see in a pedigree need to be reasonably close up as in the first 3 generations (and yes, those horses cost quite a bit)!

This horse is NOT INbred. She is LINEbred. INbreeding requires a lot closer relatives be bred together (like 1st cousins, brother/sister, half siblings and so forth). Line breeding of this sort rarely causes issues.

Would love to see a photo of your horse.

Yea, a lot of old time foundation breeding, and no...the horse is not inbred. She's linebred...there's a HUGE difference.
