Talking Just For Fun How Much Thoroughbred is in my QHs Pedigree?

Hello everyone, here is a link to my Quarter Horses pedigree.
http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/mckb+chop+willow

Im not really too into pedigrees except with racehorses, but I was surprised when I started doing a little digging and found out how many Thoroughbreds my QH was related to in his 5th generation back. In his 5th generation, there is 1 full-blooded TB (possibly 2 as Ill explain below), 5 that were 1/2 TB, and another 7 that were 1/4 TB. When you take into account that in the 5th generation there are 32 horses altogether, and that of those, 13 of them had pretty strong Thoroughbred blood, it really got me curious. I dont really know how to divide it out to figure it out, but Im interested to know what percentage Thoroughbred that my QH technically is. Does anyone know how to calculate that?

If it helps, in his 5th generation, the following horses (from top to bottom) were the ones with strong TB bloodlines:
Mr. Bar None was 1/2.
Lucky Bar is listed as a Quarter Horse but if you look, both of the parents were registered Thoroughbreds so for the sake of argument maybe we should consider that horse to be full??? I listed it as half when I was doing my research but maybe it should be a full blooded TB?
Skip Monte was 1/4
Skip Albar was 1/2
Lee Tag was 1/4
Joe Baileys King was 1/4
Win Or Lose was 1/4
Miss Lucky Too was another weird one, because her parents are listed as QH, when both grandparents were TBs on her fathers side. Therefore, I counted her as a 1/2.
Skip Salero was 1/4.
Joe Baileys King was 1/4 (hes in the 5th generation twice, thats why I listed him again)
Pasamonte Paul was 1/2.
Twin Bar was a full blooded Thoroughbred
Trusky Bar was 1/4

Some of those horses make other appearances in his pedigree, but you get the picture. So for anyone out there who likes pedigree and can help me with figuring out, technically, what percent TB my QH is, please let me know! This is kinda silly I know, but I really love Thoroughbreds (I used to have one) so to find out this info on my QH was pretty cool to me. :)

18% would be what I figured.

I figured my racing Quarter mare and she's 58% TB I figured yours given the numbers you had and all others as QH but if they have TB then the percent would be higher.

Thank you QtrBel! I knew how to do the research but after that I got confused trying to calculate it out. lol That sounds about right and a few of his other relatives did have TB blood way back in there, so it might be a little more but 18% seems good to me. lol Thank you! :)
