    Default Another pedigree analysis!

    Anyone willing to have a look at this mare's pedigree for eventing? Any suggestions for possible compatible stallion lines?

    Also, is the heavy inbreeding usually considered favorable or undesirable?

    Thanks in advance for any insight!

    Would love to think on this one. She has her pool of available ancestors reduced to very, very few. They are good ones, mind you, but the bad and recessive traits have just as much chance of popping up as the good ones.

    I love the breeding on the dam, not so much the sire. What's interesting is that neither parent was a sound racehorse, so it's somewhat amazing that Tuttmania lasted for 4 years on the track. Is she sound? What's her conformation like?

    If you want to see her on Sport Horse Breed database, I've entered her. The sire's inbreeding is pretty amazing.

    Here's her CANTER listing if the conformation shots can provide any insight?

    It states she's been pin-fired, which might make those family soundness issues more relevant... Hmm...

    Pinfiring is or was, as you know, very common at the track. She comes from a line of precocious TBs on top. If she trained and ran as a two year old, it's likely that she showed up with bucked shins (very common) and was pinfired for that. If it was just for bucked shins, I wouldn't let that worry me at all. I have a horse who is now 26, worked hard until he was 22, and he was pinfired at three for his shins.

    I also think pinfiring is used for splints, but have no personal experience with that. Where the scars are will tell you what she was pinfired for.

    vineyridge, thank you so much for all your insight! I'm so bad with pedigree stuff, is it possible to elaborate on any of those possible traits that might show up, if you have any familiarity with these lines? Or possible nicks that might improve on her (in my uninformed opinion) eventing lines?

    Thanks again, all this info is great!
