Are these lines known for this driven behavior too? Rebel does not think. He just reacts.
If that is your colts sire, then I would say that there is so little Impressive to make much difference.
I put Impressive horses in the same category as Hancock horses, either people love them or hate them. They are either great or they're not.
I know of people that love them and knew a lady that had a son of Impressive that was a great horse/stud. On top of being good natured he won a ton of money in the roping pen and most of his get were money earners as well.
I have rode a few Impressive horses and owned one as well. He was also had Miss Farmer Deal and Quincy Dan on his papers. Fastest horse I ever owned, extremely athletic but like a said, a driver not a thinker. I sold him a few times and he always came back. He flipped over backwards on someone and was labeled "a killer". And a stock contractor had offered to buy him from me after seeing him buck. I am not blaming the Impressive breeding as the Quincy Dan sure didn't help! LOL But between the ones I had rode they had a common lack of brain power.
