No, you took that wrong..or I didn't word it well enough... I meant that the little TB Wasn't enough to take away anything good from the QH traits...I have an appendix QH/TB mare that is an awesome barrel horse. She's reining and working cow horse bred with a ton of speed from her dam's TB side...IMO, that is the best mix for a barrel horse...I absolutely love cow horse bloodlines, they are my favorite..Actually, she looks like a TB when she's in really good shape. Super fast and she actually is a decent jumper too. She also had a high enough percentage to get her registered as an appendix.
No problem..and I completely agree with you..The OP's horse should be very versatile and probably an awesome all around horse..You have a very well bred horse and should be a very versatile horse in what ever direction you choose to take the horse.
Drumrunner, I just have never heard the term barrelbred, When I was breeding QH's they were either cow bred,cutting, reining, roping, halter or race bred, and were champions in one or more of these, there was never any mention about barrelbred, so I learned something new today, Thank You Laurie
The % of TB has no barring on her being Appendix or not. It is just that the horses between her and the TB in her pedigree has not been advanced.Actually, she looks like a TB when she's in really good shape. Super fast and she actually is a decent jumper too. She also had a high enough percentage to get her registered as an appendix.
