New question....

Why does Sonny's sire's side go back to thoroughbreds? (Track the Eternal names). He's a quarter horse. Why do Thoroughbreds pop up so quickly in his lineage?

Would that then make him not full QH? Or is that not how horse breeding works?

*edit: his dam's side goes back to thoroughbreds too - what the heck? lol

Thoroughbred is an approved outcrossing for quarter horses and it'd be rare to find a qh that didn't have some tb somewhere because they also played a big part in developing the breed.

I'm not sure when they started the appendix thing (1/2 qh, 1/2 tb) but an appendix can earn full qh status after gaining a certain amount of show points. At least it was this way. Been a long time since I quit breeding and keeping up on all the rules.

Qh came from tbs. Track ANY QH back enough and the go back to eclipse and arabians and barbs. Also fun fact all gray qh can trace straight back to OLD MOROCCO MARE (an arab). So without the TB (or arab) there would be no QH. Pick a side of his pedigree and keep clicking until you cant anymore. there are some cool horses in there including Steel Dust (Qh used to be called Steel Dusts because of him).
