Bloodline Question..
 
I have a 15.3 hand quarter horse that is bred for cutting. I finally found his papers and I want to know if his breeding is any good. I am trying to trade or sell him and am trying to see what I should ask.

His papers are here: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/peps+gone+roan

He is green broke and is a very sweet guy and learning very quickly! I just don't have the money to feed him anymore and so we are getting rid of a bunch of our horses. My main goal is that he goes to a great home.

Here is a picture of him...

Anything Peppy and anything Bar are great cutting lines. How old is he?

I have a daughter of Peps Black San, who is this guys grandsire. She is 14 1hh, compared to your big boy.

His bloodlines are average...nothing special, but not terrible either.

Just a word of advice I wouldn't advertise him as a cutting prospect he is far to large for what the big timers like to see. I would suggest putting some more rides on him and selling his as a please/trail or gaming horse.

He is a pretty guy for sure...but he does need his feet done pretty desperatly.

He is a very cute boy. I hope that you find a good home for him. I absolutely adore Two Eyed Jack horses. Billy Allen made many of them famous for more than just halter horses. He was the one who started using them for roping and working cow horse. Your boy has a TEJ head on him.....beautiful.

Are you wanting to know what you should ask when you sell your boy?

I didn't realize that he was 15.3hh. He is quite a bit too large to be sold as a prospective cutter, at least in the upper levels. It would probably be better to advertise him as a prospective trail horse, 4H type horse, or maybe a barrel or pole horse.

Considering he is green broke and registered, I'd think it would be reasonable to ask $900-$1100 for him, but I am not sure how the market is where you are.

Good luck!

He is a handsome guy, i like his looks. Bloodlines are nothing amazing, nice cow lines, i would advertise him as a rope horse prospect or a barrel racing, trail horse, all around type. He has a nice color not your regualr bay or chestnut, so that will help him. I would say what leah says. With him only being green and the way the market is, the only ones that are selling are the dead broke kind. If you were close to me i would consider him lol.

Thanks for all the replies. I know we definately got ripped off when we bought him but I paid 2000 for him as a yearling. I am just hoping to find someone looking for a nice prospect getting rid of a nice big grade gelding.
Maybe I will get lucky, or if it comes down to it I can just add my pleasure saddle and come out with a nicer horse.
