- - Purebred??? (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-breeds/purebred-150115/)
When I got my quarter horse filly almost 5 months ago, I was told she was a purebred quarter horse. Both Dam and Sire were purebred quarter horses.
Her Dam is registered as Hanks Red Ace, and I did some research and found some thoroughbred in her 5th or 6th generations, and then, going back to the 1700's, some arabian.
Would she still be qualified as purebred, as up to her 4rth or 5th generations back are all quarter horse? At least on her dams side, I do not know about her sire, but assuming something like the same thing.
Should I call her a purebred quarter horse anyways, if people ask if she is a purebred?
I am really wondering.
Also, I believe this is the right horse, I found a link to on this forum. I will be running it by the previous owner to make sure though, but again, assuming this is the right horse.
All quarter horses have TB. It's Part of the breeding to develop them.

The Quarter Horse breed is a relatively young breed and was developed from a mixture of others - including Thoroughbreds and Arabians, and some Spanish blood. I'm not surprised she goes back to other breeds. Three Bars, a very influential and prominent sire in QH bloodlines, was a Thoroughbred.
My Thoroughbred filly goes back to Arabians some 400 years ago, but she's still a purebred registered Thoroughbred. Most Warmbloods have some TB and Arabian blood, and THEY are still purebred registered Warmbloods.
Nearly every breed is an amalgamation of many others.
And anyways, would she still be a purebred?
Yes, presuming both her parents are purebred. Since you're not sure about her sire, it is conceivable she MAY not be, but if she's registered as a QH [not an appendix] then she is considered a purebred QH.
Okay, she is not registered, but can be, if her sire is (he is eligable to be, but not) and what is the difference between the QH and appendix quarter horse?
You don't have her papers so she's grade. I personally haven't figured out how to make papers force my horse to be any better. Hmmm tho I suppose you could roll em up and use em as a crop! Lmao! Id worry less about about who she IS and put that effort into what she can do. And just enjoy her.

OK so she's purebred, then, if her sire can be registered... but grade because she's not registered. Whether it has papers or not doesn't change whether it's pure or crossbred, but does mean you can't PROVE it's pure. We had a purebred, but grade Welsh a few years ago, and he was awesome. Very typey little guy, there was no question he was purebred even though he wasn't registered. And he had that adorable Welsh personality. I'd kill to have another one [but taller... he was sold because I sadly outgrew him].
QH is "purebred" [always will have TB and Arabian in the pedigree though], appendix is registered QH cross registered TB. Here in Aus it's called first cross, then second cross if you cross that horse back to a QH again. I think, from there, if you cross a second cross to a QH, the resulting foal is eligible for full registration as a "purebred", but don't quote me on that. QH are not my domain!
