My hopefully(haha) future event horse, got him off the track this summer, he is 4 years old..built well, great brain. I'm not too familiar with bloodlines, ive searched around and see some of his ancestors quite alot(Bold Ruler) but I dont know what to look for or if any of his were any good.

Nasrullah 3X on the bottom twice as a sire sire nd 1X as a dam sire.

W/ In Reality a tough cookie s*o*b* on top.
You should have a tough minded horses w/ an opinion.

For modern day horses w/ jump I have had phenominal luck w/ Grand Slam (Gone West) horses and any time I can get a Private Account bred horse I grab it. Conquestador Cielo's fabulous gaits, tough , sound can jump the moon...but opinionated.
Sweetsouthernsaint (Saint Ballado), a horse who no to only throws pretty w/ color but lovely minded, good movers, brave jumpers.
Artax pretty chrome lovely gaits lovely minds.
Allens Prospects lovely movers, good jumpers, bit cranky personality, PRoud n True every one has phenominal jump talent, good minded, easy learners, little hot.
Storm Cats, Halo's, Two Punch I try to avoid no so much luck .

He's lovely and looks like the type I'd pick out. I know what I like in bloodlines, but that doesn't mean I know ANYTHING, so I'll leave that to others. And, really, while bloodlines are great, it does still boil down to the individual. If you like him and are happy with him, it shouldn't matter if he's by an old plow horse out of a cowpony. ;)

He's *very* cute! And a lucky guy to have found a good home after his previous owner :yes:

I have a son of In Reality, and he is the sweetest and easiest guy to have around - so not all In Realitys are tough :)

Has he had the throat surgery that Michael Gill is famous for?

Words can't express how dreadful that SOB is IMO.

Viney - a friend of mine owned a colt who came from Gill, and he hadn't had the surgery yet... so perhaps this one got lucky too. But I agree, Gill is scum.

I'm hijacking for a second....sorry!

viney, I just found out (since it's cold and I'm bored and have nothing better to do) that two horses I really like, one of them an all time favorite, are closely related- their grandsire is Wild Again.

Fave little mare that I keep thinking of ways to get back, even though I love her owner like a little sister- http://www.pedigreequery.com/darlas+doll

The big guy who is very fancy-

While they bare no resemblance physically (Darla is teeny tiny, Cass is a big, handsome, leggy guy) they are both extremely athletic and have big, powerful jumps. What, if anything, do you know about Wild Again? I've heard he's quite nice, but that source may have been speaking in racehorse terms and not sport horse.

I dont think he has had the surgery. He hasnt shown anything that would lead me to think thata but im not positive. Im reading more into it because that definitely worries me. He also had another owner or two besides Gill, after he was with him so i'm hoping he wasnt with gill for very long.

He has a great personality and is wonddderrrrfulll to work with. He has small opinionated moments but is not difficult or thick headed in anyway! Good thing! :lol:

DD's **** horse is a g grandson of In Reality on the sire's side and grandson of His Majesty on the dam side. He's a little beast, but we keep him around anyway!
