I'm considering trading my buckskin AQHA mare for this mare (long story)...

This is the only pic I have of her so far.  She's a 2002 model and nicely bred - pulled her 4 gen to find King 234, Poco Bueno, Lighntning Bar, Doc Bar & Doc's Hotrodder).

She is lovely, and as long as she is sound, and has a good mind, with no Jet Deck in her pedigree I would guess she would be a good trade.

Well the deal fell through...BUT Nic, you have to tell me for future reference what you have against Jet Deck (I'm a TB/WB person and don't know the stories behind stock horse breeding, just recognize the names)...

TB=Throughbred, WB=Warm Blood.

Jet Deck was and AWESOME race horse, with a tweaked mind. He would work, and work and explode. That trait has been passed on to his get, and I saw it 4 generations out from Jet in a mare someone brought in for training. I found I could do just about anything with this mare until she had, had enough, then she would tense up, and if you didn't move on to a new activity she would go ballistic-she would have made a great bronc because there wasn't a move she couldn't do with her 16.2hh frame. Jet Decks personality issue has been discussed in the Legends series of Quarter Horse books. He left quite a stamp on the horse world.

She's a pretty mare, helmsted.
 I'm sure you'll find another buyer for her, soon.
