dang close to it. most of them i have been around were always real calm. they didnt get jumpy or startled easy just a real calm horse. I am still a dan of a good doc bar myself. i wish i could get one with the cow sense and quickness that a heavy bred doc bar (not to mention the heart.them little buggers got more heart in them than any other line ive been around) has but the calmness and lack of buck that the king bred has.

I put her down last summer, as her bum leg was bothering her more and more. Still have her daughter, a solid buckskin paint..going to gentle her this year..think she'll make a nice team penner or barrel horse..she is BIG.
We bred to a chic horse one year, Smokin Chic Olena. I was very pleased with the resulting gelding..he was actually out of the king glo mare. sold him to a local guy, who'd ridden hancocks his whole life. Said this little guy was born broke. day worked off him for awhile, then sold him to a 12 year old girl to breakaway rope off of..
this was him as a yearling
all this being said, I think you'll be pleased with the cross you are considering.
and more power to you breeding in this market....I got fed up always coming out on the short end of the stick, even breeding to well known, successful stallions...

The three that I had were all young horses that I started and sold as finished ranch horses a few years back and the bueno/bar is an older mare that I own now. My experiance with them has been SMART level-headed horses that want to be kind really bad but can sour fast because they learn everything the FIRST TIME and they don't un-learn... No buck at all on any of them. They like to work but won't take punishment like a doc bar bred horse will.
One of the ones that I started I bought as a two year old and she was spoiled rotten and mean on the ground when I got her. I thought she'd get better with miles so I jumped on her and took off and to the day I sold her she was mean on the ground(despite my going back and trying to fix it) and everything that I'd taught her was fine. The two geldings were broke after the second ride. Easy. Made nice horses.
