    Question Pedigree Gurus - some advice please.

    Do either of these pedigrees suggest Sporthorse sire potential to pedigree experts, here?? Lots of good names in both!

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/maximus+prospector - 16.3 big boned, 5 yr. old TB colt

    http://www.pedigreequery.com/galaxy+rush - 16.2+ lighter boned, 3 yr. TB colt

    Both horses are sane, very nice movers and vetted sound.

    Thanks.

    I wouldn't want either as a breeding stallion, but if they are sane and nice movers, there's no reason why they couldn't make decent sport horses. I don't really see upper level in any discipline for them.

    Not that I'm an expert of any kind, but I do like the Ascot Knight in the second pedigree.

    There was a recent thread discussing linebreeding of Mr P and ND. If you search for that you may find a lot of discussion on them. Also, some people aren't too keen on Storm Cat but I think it's just a temperament issue.

    the first one: the Mr. P/ Northern D on his topside is done to death...is adding nothing special to the gene pool. The damside is really nice though.
    The second one holds no appeal for me. Linebred Mr. P (nooo thank you), linebred Northern D and throw in Halo whom I don't care for...or Storm Cat either. In short, personally the second one has no redeeming qualities on paper.
    As viney said...for riding horses look at the horse in front of you. As breeding material? I would breed to neither personally. Though if the first one was stunning looking I *might* consider the first one as the damside is really nice.

    Default The visual that comes to mind for the 2nd one....

    Mr. P, Halo and Storm Cat?!!!!......I can see a picture of that horse storming the gates of hell with the devil riding him, complete with fire flaming from his nostrils!

    Yes, I've heard Halo was pretty ugly to be around and Storm Cat, too, although some people love their Storm Cat riding horses. Not worth taking a chance on producing "lucifer"!! The colt is very attractive and the owner swears he is super quiet and agreeable, but Mr.P x 3 is asking for trouble.
    I do like the other horse's looks and demeanor.
    Just window shopping for now, but don't plan on buying trouble!! I want excellent confo, excellent disposition tall and user friendly to cross on 1/2 TB (ISH) mares and maybe an occassional TB. With the market in the dumps there is no point in producing more, although I have sold several lately.
    Thanks for all the input.
