Hoofbeats from the past....

2_horses.gif

In the previous pages, we've looked at the stallions of the past that are still influencing our Quarter Horse breeding program at Cloughrinka, today. Now, I'd like to change the perspective to the pedigree distaff side.

Unfortunately, there's a decided lack of resources [concrete information or photos] when it comes to AQHA producing mares of the past. Too many times you simply come to "mare by so & so". Most of the ones listed below were on the track & that's probably the only reason there was much documentation done on them.

Please take a moment to meet some grand mares. They are just as significant, if not as well heralded.
