So Cool!

I was very excited to see the response from the National Foundation Quarter Horse Association today.  While I fully and completely understand it really doesn't do or mean much - I think it's pretty cool.  A few weeks ago I had sent off Whiskey and Roxy's information to them.  I have eagerly been awaiting a response since.  

In order to be certified Foundation, a quarter horse must have no more than 20% Thoroughbred in something like 12 generations.  Basically they're looking at promoting what would be considered a traditional type quarter horse.  It turns out both my girls are certified Foundation.  Whiskey barely squeaks in at 82% and Roxy is at 86%.

Basically meaningless, but cool nonetheless.
