Does anyone know anything about Zippo Pine Bar? He sired my horse and I do see alot of his offspring for sale. When I bought him I really wasn't interested in his breeding because I fell in love with him, but now I'm definately interested in knowing any info I can find out about him.
Zippo Pine Bars... almost all competitive western pleasure horses out there are related to him. There are a few other lines, but for the most part, it's ZPB. And what's nice about his horses is they are supposed to have good minds and be good all-around prospects as well. He's one of those stallions that changed the Quarter Horse industry.
Zippo Pine Bar horses were also bred by his owner's neghbors for awesome working ranch horses (not the classes, but the real thing!) - the dispositions and willingness of this lline are unbeatable. Our gelding (ex-stud) is double bred ZPB on both sides on his papers, and was one of the easiest and best natured colts to break out we have ever worked with.
We have a couple Zippo bred horses, one is our AQHA stallion, and the other is his 2 yr old full brother! I can only speak highly of them both!! And Bucket loves doing the ranch type stuff! He only lightly gets to do it now due to his age, but we feel he will only get better!
We breed the Zippo line of horses as well, they are calm and even tempered, and do make good all around horses, even though known most for their western pleasure. It depends alot, I think, on what you breed them to. Add a little cow lines to get some spunk.....etc.
Here is the pedigree of our pride and joy... http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/zippos+mac+in+black
