New footage of Quaterback, and more BABIES!!!

It's been awhile since I've posted on Quaterback, the stallion that is generating a lot of buzz in sport horse breeding. He was only about 3 or 4 years old in the 2006 video that "made him famous" as a youngster. Quaterback has no doubt changed and I have been looking for new pix or footage. Hopeful Farm shared this picture on COTH -- think it is fairly recent.

Well, just this morning I discovered 2009 video footage on Youtube! He looks stronger, more fully developed and in control of his own movement. In short, still gorgeous. Sigh.

Judy Yancey of Yancey Farms shared some photos of his 2009 crop. Aren't they just lovely? The bottom picture is a baby out of a mare (by ET) that I drool over, Tamarinde. My friend who breeds Oldenburgs -- she can spot conformation weaknesses at 20 paces -- calls her a "kickass mare." You can bet I'll be looking out for more pix of this flashy chestnut.

I have one gripe, which is why can't any of these Quaterback breeders pick the names I am dying to see in use: Quiji and Quixotic. I mean, how many good 'q' names can there be????


  1. Cute babies. Love the "lofty" gaits.

    Guess I will just drool along with you. *sigh*

  2. My goodness, that stallion is gorgeous!!! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Adorable foals, first of all. Second of all, (I know this is a little off topic, but...) you should check out my blog. It's If you can, give me some feedback, please!

  4. Sorry guys, Quixotic is taken;)
    My one year old after quaterback is names Quixotic Rubin (After Rubinstin on his mothers side)
