RE: [RC] Another great "old" QH - LEO - Peery, Sandra

I don't think that most educated quarter horse people would argue with you, either about Tbs or Arabians in the role of developing the quarter horse.  Unfortunately, there are a lot of ignorant people out there who wont take the time to learn anything or are so breed/discipline biased that they refuse to believe anything else then their deluded beliefs.  The Quarter Horse Legends book actually lists 3 Tbs (Three Bars, Top Deck, and Depth Charge) along with several of their descendants and other horses that are clearly marked as coming from Tb sires and dams that were influential in developing the breed.  I think the reason that these horses aren't included in the blood calculations by the foundation people is that these horses were never actually given "quarter horse status" ie never were evaluated in the beginning or did not earn points so it is more of a silly political type thing unfortunately.
PS Leo is one of my favorite bloodlines, we have several horses that are descended from him.

Subject: [RC] Another great "old" QH - LEO

I promise - this is my last post on this subject.  But I just had to send this link.  "Leo" is one of the most famous QH in great pedigrees.  Take a look at his pedigree and tell me that thoroughbreds weren't behind the foundation QH.  (You can also see quite a few gaps in the old pedigrees -- those could have been grade horses, or registered horses from other breeds.)
