I like to go to Horse Sales for fun and I see a lot of neat horses here in N. Texas. I seem some names that sound familiar popping up in the pedigrees but I don't know much about them other than they are usually NCHA names.
Sure enough, these horses are always a little on the small side. Usually very soft in the bridle and agile. The owners are always high on them and seem reluctant to sell for less than 3,000+. Many have come straight from a cattle outfit.
Thing is, I usually don't find the horse's name that is being sold on any pedigree website. Usually I only find some of the lineage, the ones with the name that grab your attention.
Nice ranch horse at recent sale
I'm not trying to call this person out, nice guy and a great horse. Just looking for opinions on this type of thing. I am looking to buy a horse like this for a nice novice All Around in a a year or so (Ranch Sorting, Cutting, Reined Cow Horse, Versatility) and just trying to build up my knowledge on it.
Thanks in advance
