Streakin Six offspring
Posted 26 March 2008 - 10:03 PM
I was told the line is very laid back, almost lazy, which definitely describes my colt. He also has a very stubborn streak to him. It kinda frustrates me because I do get the comments all the time that bash him about his rather slow "I would rather sleep and eat" nature. That he won't make a good running horse, but I definitely have a lot of hope in him.
If you have a horses with the Streakin Six line can you tell me the personality and how your training went with your horse. Very curious!

On the other hand I have a gelding, not out of Streakin Six, that is lazy and always cool and relaxed about everything, but send him at a barrel and he comes alive. He can run, yet he always calms right back down when we walk out of the gate. Laid back, doesn't mean they can't run. Good Luck with your colt!

He was already broke when I bought him as a 2 yr old and she said that he was easy to break no buck or anything. If he doesn't sale I'll be sending him off to be trained on barrels. I love this guy....he is just a sweet heart.

I said what I've seen...And I haven't seen a SS horse yet that can't run...laid back or not...I don't think anyone on here was being negative were they? Just checking, because we all know that on email/blogs/posts, words look and seem different on screen than in real life...

And honestly, at the end of the day, wouldn't you rather have one that a lil laid back than a flighty, got my head up, go go go horse? I have seen a lot of good Streakin Six horses that have been 1d & 2d horses. Good luck with him!

I think she was commenting about me saying people have been some what bashing my colt due to his very laid back nature, saying that he won't make a barrel horse.
Thanks for the replies!

Both my two barrel horses are the "I'd rather eat & sleep" natures. Boy do they get mad if they're not fed on time or if they're interupted at nap time. However, when it's time to work, they'll get up and go. And neither of them are Streakin Six.
Edited to add: I started trotting the stud around the barrels for the heck of it...see what he needed to work, etc. In less than the 10 rides and the handful of times I've taken him around the pattern, he already knows it & looks for the next barrel. Seems to have very natural talent.

He sounds exactly like my colt. He is super smart, but very stubborn!
I have ridden him only 4 times now and each ride is getting better but man does it take alot of effort to get those feet movin!
Thanks for all the replies! I hear about the Streakin Six line being very laid back but one heck of a barrel horse so I am very excited!

She ran on the track and had a 97 speed index.
She caught on to things fast and took to barrels naturally.
When you tell her to go, man she would go!
When you wanted to just play around and go slow, she would do that too.
Awesome mare. I want another Streakin Six horse!
