Poco Bueno horses? Jaz Bronze Bueno babies?
I wanted your opinion on horses bred the same way as a mare I got about 6 months ago for $100. She's a nice little mare and is coming along very nicely (: I'm planning on doing poles and barrels with her , I would love to try out cutting on her but there's no cutting in shows or rodeos anywhere I could compete at nearby. :(
If you've had experience with horses bred the same way as her what did they excel in besides cutting?

Some pretty good breeding in your mare, working cow bred top and bottom. Honestly I am not sure if she is the horse you want to run poles and barrels with - as an exaggerated example: it's like bringing a Percheron to the Kenntucky Derby. I hear that barrel racers start to appreciate some cutting blood as addition to their speed breeding for quickness, but your mare is cutting through and through.
However - maternal grand daughter of Freckles Playboy for $100 - pretty good buy!

Thanks! She's gonna be a good mare!
I figured I might try breakaway or goat tying as we'll but like I said we don't have a lot of cutting nearby. Otherwise I'd love to do what she's bred for.

... and cutting is a sport that you can not teach a horse if you've never done it before yourself, you would probably need to send her to a trainer, and that gets really expensive. She will probaly make a very good roping mount, though.

I know this lmao. But I'm always up for trying new things. I know I couldn't teach her myself. But there's no point in trying if its gonna cost a lot of money to go somewhere just to do it for a weekend

I really like her breeding, has she been tested for HERDA that you know of?

There's no reason why a cutting bred horse can't run barrels and poles. A lot of barrel racers, myself included, are looking for not only running bloodlines but I like my horses mixed with cow horse bloodlines. My mare is reining and running bred...My gelding is cutting bred through and through and he makes a really nice barrel horse. If anything his cattiness, really getting low, and being quick on his feet helps dig around the barrels and turns.

I'd love to see a few conformation shots on your mare and a little more information about her. I think she's an excellent buy for $100.

This is Hickory's pedigree.. Just to show that a horse with awesome cutting horse bloodlines can still make a great barrel horse.

No, she has not been tested that I know of!
I FINALLY got her registered which seemed like forever with the parentage verification!
She's only 14.1 and will be 5 in April. I'm hoping she'll grow just a few more inches! But most likely mature out at about 14.2
Are you still wanting confo pics on her? Sorry, I never checked back on here ! D:
