How to Calculate Blood Percentages in your horse's pedigree. Since we receive so many inquiries about how to calculate the blood percentage of one ancestor in a horse's pedigree (Joe Hancock or Blue Valentine, etc.), here's a quick tutorial, written up by Jennifer Keller.

5-generation pedigree form - a free downloadable .pdf form you can open & print for record keeping or figuring blood percentages by hand.

Joe Hancock
AQHA Hall of Fame tribute
including additional information and photos of the Perche influence on the original Joe Hancock.

The Story of Joe Hancock. March 30, 2012, America's Horse (from Quarter Horse Magazine) One of the greatest quarter-mile horses in all history had a typically American “rags to riches” career.

Hancock Super Stars; a Directory of today's “Hot Hancocks!” A tribute to modern day Hancock horses who are carrying on the tradition of excellence in performance areas. Many Hancock horses of today are hard at work on ranches and feedlots, but, these featured horses demonstrate that Hancocks can hold their own with any QH performance bloodline. Anyone we have missed? Let us know. Not all these horses have pics: Do you have photos of these Super Stars we could use?

Heart ...
... or, Two Riders' Opinions

I talked to a friend
just the other day
who's got lots of opinions
and plenty to say.
We discussed what we both
like to see in a horse
His requirements and mine
were different of course?

He likes a clean throatlatch
and a long skinny neck,
and prefers that their hocks
are set close to the deck.
Short backs and hard feet
and clean slopin' shoulder,
and a gaskin that looks
like it swallered a boulder.

He likes a short face
and a big ol' soft eye,
and says these are the horses
he's likely to buy.
And when he'd completed
his lengthy discourse,
on all of the attributes
of the quality horse...

He asked my opinion;
... and ... where do I start?
I said that I ?
just want horses with heart.
I said I want heart
above all the other.
I don't care if he's
Smart Little Lena's full brother.

Or just how much money
that his grandmother won,
or whether he's roan,
palomino or dun.
But give me a horse
with some grit and some try,
and some heart and some guts
and that's one that I'll buy.

And I've found it's the same,
with a woman or man?.
the good ones won't quit you,
when the s*** hits the fan

by Monte Baker



A Hancock Compliment
... ya gotta see the humor in this!

He couId of said
you're sweet as pie
Or that you're prettier
than pasture posies.
He could have said
your company was precious
Or twice as nice as anything.

But no...
None of that would say it,
good enough to suit
And being shy,
he struggled w/ emotions,
seeking proper relevance--
and looking at his boots,
he found it, and spoke it
Before it slipped away,
or took a fright and hid again.

The finest compliment
that he could possibly imagine
He hoped she would realize
that even so
It still wasn't quite as much
As he would like to say.

"You are a woman
I'd be proud to ride beside," he said
"You remind me
of a really fine Hancock horse
The kind that
you can do anything astride
The kind that's full of try."

And she, shy too, swelled up w/ pride inside, and couldn't speak
But knew exactly what he meant
as she went racing home to Mother
Comparing herself to the supple athleticism, the tenacity,
The incomparable intelligence of the
Finest cow horses this country's ever seen...

She couldn't believe it
when her Mom kinda hurt her
Listening to her breathless recitation
Of his wonderful Hancock comparison
And laughed and laughed and laughed.

"That's great! Hancock horses...
Perfect wives!"
Dear Mother laughed and cried,
"Hard headed buckers, tough to break,
Big in the hind end,
and mostly ugly in the head!"

by cowgirl poet Sue Wallis,
recited in Elko, NV, at a cowboy poetry event...
