View Full Version : Info about my mare's lines
I bought this mare in the Fall 07 sale at Tattersalls and I'm curious if anyone can tell me anything about her bloodlines. All I seem to be able to find is show records for some of the horses and a picture or two. Anything you can tell me would be awesome.
She's by Matchbox Twenty (Desert's Supreme Admiral x Auburn) and out of a mare named Lemon Parfait (Anacacho's Golden Genius x Whisper Sea).
Here's a link to her pedigree : http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/lemon+supreme2
I'm really interested in any traits that are carried through these lines (temperament, action, etc.)

We'd love to hear your own observations about the mare you have had for 18 months now.
How is she coming along for you -I see she is 5 now?
Your mare's bottom line is older, mostly Golden Saddlebreds, strong, well-boned, and muscular with good shoulders and perhaps longer necks than are commonly seen today; and crossed with good show stock -back then, I'd say about evenly gaited and not.
Of course her action (if it is there) came through the sire line mainly -you have some nice crosses to Sultan's Santana and the nick of Supreme Sultan-Wing Commander.
Hope you are enjoying your gal!

My mare actually has some related breeding. Her dam is by Desert's Supreme Memories and is out of an Anacacho's Golden Genius mare. Top side, my mare is by Guy's Superfine, so has the extra "dash" of Supreme Sultan that way. The biggest difference is that your mare has Kalu, and mine has none at all, while my mare's tail line goes to Stonewall King (a little closer than yours).
My mare is deep liver, however, her dam is a golden Palomino. While she thinks well of herself, she's quite opinionated, and often thinks she's right. That has led to some interesting events along the way, LOL. She had tons of motion, but had the wrong trainer as a weanling and never forgot it - so motion comes when she wants it (victory passes are always a good time). She has found her niche as a WP horse as she has beautiful, balanced gaits. She is extremely athletic - far more so than the rest of my ASBs. She's compact, has fabulous bone, a gorgeous eye, and can really break at the poll. We don't shoe her in the rear as she has really good driving hocks and shoes give her way too much motion in the rear for WP. It's hard to find a photo of her where back and front leg are not balanced.
She is NOT the most loving of my horses, however, compared to when she was a youngster, as she has matured, she has become far more of a pet. She's very, very, very social and would much rather stand around on a lead rope at the shows "talking" with my friends and I than stand in her stall. Since she has a daughter, and threw her body as well as her personality (in general - her daughter is more of a love bug), I'd say the above are all traits that she is carrying.
Sounds like my mare. She's definitely opinionated. When she doesn't want to do something, there's no way to make her do it - I've heard that this is common with Kalu bred horses. I've also been told that mares out of the Sultan's American Dream line have a wicked streak in them. She's currently a WP prospect. She has hock, but she has no motion in the front. But one thing I've noticed with her is that some days she's as calm as can be and other days, she's all go. I know that she was shown in the Iowa GASHA futurity as a weanling, but according to the breeder, she was never shown under saddle.
Here's a link to some pictures of her:
None of them are very good and the only recent picture of her is the one with the show headstall on. She was 3 or 4 in the rest of them.

My mare is very game. She can do a show and then a 20 mile trail ride with no problem (and has). I liken riding her WP to "playing chess with a firecracker."
Here are two photos from March of her as well as a parade and a trail photo:
For reference, this is her dam:
She's a very nice looking mare. She really does sound like my mare. Mine loves trail riding. I guess she likes having new things to look at and I like it because she has to think about things. She's only been shown once and I quickly discovered that she is not nearly as calm in the ring as she is on a trail. She loves to show off whenever she thinks someone is watching.
