Larkin, Susan. Thoroughbred Sires of Quarter Horses. Houston: Loshadt 1999. 220p, no ills. Very good paperbound, comb-bound (slight cover soil). Bookplate. ** This excellent reference compiles 172 6-generation pedigrees of Thoroughbred stallions foaled before 1940 that are found in Quarter Horse bloodlines. Many pedigrees go back to the early 1800s, and many foreign horses are included. There is also bloodline information on hundreds of other sires, including many U.S. Remount and fairly obscure sires. Arranged alphabetically and fully cross-indexed, this one-volume edition expands on and replaces the author's earlier three books with this title. Making available much pre-electronic information, it is invaluable for both Thoroughbred and Quarter Horse pedigree researchers. It is out of print, was never published in any other medium, and won't be reissued.
