Anyone familiar with Bonanza Lines?
I just acquired a Bonanza bred 2 yr old filly. I am not familiar with her bloodlines and would like any insight on trainability etc... So far she is extremly well mannered and quiet. At 20 months old she is 14.3 hhs.

I plan on showing her in WP, Trail, western horsemanship etc...

She is a registered breeding stock Paint - Fancy Lady Be Me

out of Josie Bonanza (APHA)
Luckys Kar Bar (Lucky Sonny Dee x Impressed Star Bar)
Bonanza Barflower (Mr Golden Bonanza x Scootin Petals)

Any insight would be great! Thank you!

My DJ was out of the Bonanza lines - registered name was "DJ's Little Bonanza Man." He was a real sweetheart - very laid back and anyone could ride him. He would stand forever while my disabled hubby tried and tried and tried to mount him, no matter how much he got kicked (accidentally) and yanked on. We sometimes called him "Eyore" because he would act so put upon, like he was saying "go ahead, everyone else does." He was unbelievably kind and gentle for a six year old.

We sure miss him.

My gelding in my avatar is by R Big Time Fancy who is by Mr. Fancy Bonanza. I find that his personality is great but can get a little hyper.

Mr Fancy Bonanza is a great sire of some wonderful western pleasure horses with very smooth gaits. He seemed to pass that on to most of his babies. Looks like yours also has some Impressive far back too along with some cowy lines.

I guess confirmation pics would be the best way to tell more what your horse would be suited for than just bloodlines.

My QH mare is Bonanza Bred on her top side/sire pedigree. She goes back to Bonanza Can by Brother Can and further back to Coys Bonanza. She goes back to Leo, Go Man Go and Three Bars-TB on the bottom side/dam. She is great on the ground and has alot of common sense about her, but she can be flighty, pushy and full of herself. Which I a tributed mainly to her bottom side pedigree. I've always liked the Bonanza Bloodline.

I just had the farrier out to trim. She had been trimmed but not correctly, but no harm done. Once I find my camera I will take some confirmation pics.

Brookside Stables, your filly is so very cute and a real looker already!! Coys Bonanza was the founding sire of the Bonanza bloodlines. As I recall he was a Halter Horse, could be wrong there, though. Every Bonanza bred horse I've seen have been very good looking and well built.

i had the priviledge of getting to work with big daddy bonanza, big guy bonanza, boogie bonanza, achy breaky bonanza, kt blue chip bonanza, and others. they r a wonderful breed to be around!! they have done many of things, in halter, and different riding events. big guy was also known for throwing a lot of color on his foals, which we called crop outs or known as a paint. i really miss the days of being around all of them!! they always had the best temperments.

Love the bloodlines
I bought a beautiful buckskin splash mare last year with Mr. Golden Bonanza her sire. She is incredibly calm. I just sold her foal from last summer. The gal who bought the foal wasn't interested in young horses but when I told her she had Bonanza bloodlines she was quick to buy her. When the farrier came out to trim her for the first time he commented on how docile and sweet she was.
