APHA Lookup

Does anyone have access to see the actual pedigree of this horse? I am not an APHA member. His registered name is "Storm's Quick Dude".

TIA

I used to be able to but there is an extra charge now to have access at that level even with a membership. Hopefully someone here has the upgrade and can help.

I have his papers in hand now. I don't know much about APHA or AQHA coming from the gaited world. I googled some of the names and didn't come up with much.

His sire is Storms Bee Quick
Dam is Dudes Dainty Lady

Grandsire on the dam's side is Longtall Dude, he is the only one I could find any info on. Seems like his babies were being trained for barrels.

Some other names on his papers are Ebars Lucky Star, Roxie Hancock, Big Sky Peppy, Apache Bee Quick.

All Breeds is a little like Wikipedia since it's on the owner of the horses to list them. Mistakes can be made, but so far I've found it to be accurate.

Looks like there's some really big names in that blood, but you have to go back several generations to find it: Peppy San, Hancock, Oklahoma Star, Doc Olena, Poco Driftolena, Freckles Playboy, just to name a few.


EDIT: What do you plan to do with this horse? I know he's APHA registered, but those are butt kicking cow pony and cutting lines until the last few generations (And those I'm not familiar with).

Thank you, that last bit is very interesting. Exactly what I was looking for.

I'm not sure what I will do with him exactly. He has a few issues to work on. In a perfect world I would iron out those training issues and find him a good home. In the meantime I would like to take him to gymkhana and flag night. Even if those awesome lines are far back, it would be fun to see if he has any natural desire to track. I deal predominantly with gaited horses so he will be a big learning experience for me. Where I live it is mostly rodeo, barrels and cowboys.

I got Norman on a trade, his previous owner only wanted $500 for him. So instead I agreed to put 30 days on another horse of his, plus some cash. Norman also has a roach back. I'm not sure how much, if at all, it will hinder his ability to work or perform, or his resale for that matter.

Any advice on roach back or experiences are welcome. From my research it doesn't seem to be "severe", I've tagged it as "moderate". lol.

They often aren't as flexible in the back and have difficulty using their hind end. Depends on the horse and amount of roach. Just for a solid riding horse - no competition then it may not have any bearing. A good saddle that is properly fitted and you would be fine. Mine has a very severe roach. She is a draft and we do use her for light work. No riding though. Not that it couldn't be done but she'd need a treeless saddle that is custom fit.

For reference, would you be willing to post a picture of a "severe" roach? How does it compare to the pictures I posted? The pictures really hide it, in my opinion. During my research I came across another thread about a mare who competed in the Olympics with a severe roach back, way worse than Norman's. He's also built downhill and he's fat, so I want to believe those things make it look worse than it is.

He will definitely be geared toward an "all around" type horse rather than a competition horse.

Thank you for your input!!

Sure, let me find one. The first is a mild roach. This is the sire of the second horse. The breeding was unintended and a result of a family member's poor judgement to be politically correct and "nice' about it.
