IMPORTANT MISSION STATEMENT
BUYER BEWARE. Did you know that quite a lot of
Purebred Registered Quarter Horses
carry as much as 75% - or even 94% - Thoroughbred Blood?
Over the past several decades, the original
Quarter Horse Type and Character
have been steadily eroded by the constant influx of
Thoroughbred blood, via AQHA's Appendix Registry.
At the Lonesome Dove, our purebred Quarter Horses are either Certified,
or Percentage Confirmed, by NFQHA to contain less than 20% added Thoroughbred blood over 11 generations.
The higher the NFQHA rating, the greater the actual Quarter Horse
content in the horse. Learn more about the serious deterioration of
QH Type & Character in the article linked directly below.
