Pedigree Analysis Please.....

I bought 2 mares at the last sale and I'm very pleased with both of 'em. I like their looks and their personalities. But, I'm fairly new to QH pedigrees and I'm looking for some in depth analysis of their pedigrees, who their ancestors were, what they were know for, and based on pedigree what you'd expect these gals to be good at when they grow up.

First:
Shiners Moon Dance aka Goldie

Shiners Moon Dance Quarter Horse

And then Laker Smoke aka Dunny

Lakers Smoke Quarter Horse

I'll try to get some pics this evening when it cools down a little. The ones I took when I first got them aren't terribly flattering.

Ooh, Goldie makes me faint!

On her sire's side, you've got Shining Spark, who was one of the base studs in Carol Rose's breeding program. Reining royalty there. Also, Taris Catalyst was a NCHA money winner. Really old powerful reining and cutting lines there.

On her dam's side, you've got even more cutting and cow horse royalty, but it's a little farther back; Doc O'Lena, Peppy San, War Bond Leo, Docs Drifter.

Basically, you're looking at a cowhorse through and through.


As for Dunny, again, you're looking at reining/cutting lines, but the names I know on that one are a little farther back.

Sire's side: Double bred Mr Gun Smoke, who was a NRHA and NRCHA hall of famer, NCHA money earner. Also have Leo San and Doc Bar back there. Again, cutting bred.

Dam's side: You got Laker Doc right there, who goes back to Doc Quixote. Cutting royalty. Lots of Doc Bar in that side. THEN, you look down at the bottom and see High Brow Hickory. He is the sire of High Brow Cat, who is the leading sire of cutting horses seen in the ring today.


Basically, both those babies should eat a cow up and look pretty doing it. If you ever want rid of either, I want to get a chance at them.

WOW, thank you! That's awesome. I knew Shining Spark was awesome, I've met several of his offspring and wanted that blood. I was a lot less familiar with just about everybody else. I mean, who hasn't heard all the names, and I vaguely knew they were performance oriented as opposed to halter oriented but that was pretty much my limit. I'm still studying all the good working lines.

In the pasture they've both dropped their little hineys and slid a ways and roll back on a dime, but I wasn't sure which way to head when they're ready to train. Your explanation will help me lots next year. THANK YOU!

Today was the first day that they've been allowed to "meet" the old timers here. They've been in quarantine since they arrived, both to make sure they were healthy and to give them some up close and personal attention and time to gain a little weight. I'm pleased with how they're coming along.

Goldie is a 2 year old, and she was very thin when we got her. She's gaining weight quickly and starting to gain some height. Dunny wasn't in bad shape, she just needed to add a little more weight and a lot of shine. She's doing great.

They're both S W E E T as candy. They want to be in your pocket all the time.

Yes, you sure do have yourself a couple of well bred cow ponies. I'm envious ( :
