Hoofbeats from the past....

[I'd thought to put Three Bars in the Thoroughbred section but, all things considered, he really does deserve a page of his own!]

Lightning Bar - Three Bars (Tb) X Dandy Doll - Texas Dandy
1956; AQHA - 76,136
 
By a stallion who ran AAA & out of a race ROM mare, Doc Bar was bred to run. Apparently he didn't agree. A rather lackluster career gained only a SI-75 and $95.00. Doc Bar then went on to a successful halter career, earning  36 points. His true claim to fame was his ability as a sire. When crossed to mares of specific lines [ex,- Poco Bueno daughters] the foals were amazingly talented cutting horses.  He sired World Champions, Superiors, ROMs, NCHA money earners of $3,213,453 and NCHA Hall of Fame inductees. Doc Bar was inducted into the  AQHA Hall of Fame.

Impressive

 

Impressive
 
Lucky Bar (Tb) -Three Bars X Glamour Bars - Lightning Bar
1969; AQHA - 767,246
 
Much like Doc Bar, Impressive's pedigree indicates that he was bred for speed. Also like Doc Bar, his talents lay elsewhere. Although he never made it to the track, Impressive was a World Champion Halter horse with 49 halter points. Linebred to Three Bars 2X3X4, Impressive's get have become the standard of the modern halter class.
 
Whether you love him or hate him, you probably have an opinion on Impressive. Few horses have ever caused such an emotional, knee jerk reaction among horseman. For the uninitiated, the cause of all this concern is a genetic disease called HYPP,- a potassium in-balance caused by a mutated dominant gene. This particular mutated gene started with Impressive. Because he was such a popular show horse & bred extensively, it was passed on to quite a few of his offsprings who in turn passed it on...
 
I've included U. C. Davis' link in reference to HYPP as well as the N/N Alliance. The N/N Alliance is a group of breeders promoting N/N [Impressive horses not effected by HYPP] & non Impressive breds in the show ring. They are also fighting for the eradication of HYPP in the American stock horse breeds. If you are unfamiliar with HYPP, you might want to investigate both.
