    How do you determine the % of Foundation blood lines in a QH??
    Hypothetic question, since I don't have any real example to use,...,
    But my horse is Zippo Pat Bar bred, is there any foundation in that breeding??
    Just more curious than anything else?
    Thanks:)

    The FQHA runs the percentage as part of the registration procedure. I believe NFQHA does as well (they come up with different %'s as they use different criteria).

    Some use the first 25,000 registered AQHA horses are 100%, some go back only 10 generations regardless of the AQHA number. It totally depends on the org. If you figure your horse as 100% and then take it by half each succeeding generation and only deduct where you find a TB or A before coming to an N or Unknown or 25,000# & lower number horse you will get your FQH%.

    I let FQHA figure out the percentage when I register them. :)

    You've got a TB in the 5th generation so that is already a high deduction and I see TB in other lines. May make it, the only way to know is to submit the paperwork or do some research yourself. There are no free sites to figure percentages and most folks that try themselves without correct AQHA pedigrees do not figure it right.

    Sorry this pedigree cannot help in determining foundation percentages int that there are no registration numbers on it. You will need an AQHA extended pedigree to do so. There are no free sites to do a percentage and every group figures it differently.

    Thanks!!:)
    I was just curious if someone that knew, could tell from seeing the pedigree.
    I've had this horse 17 years, and I love the Zippo Pat Bar horses, just didn't know whether or not that particular line had much foundation blood in it.:)
