I know that the QH has to have TB in his lineage to be considered an Appendix, but how far back do you have to go?
Fella has TB blood (what horse doesn't) three generations back. Does that make him an Appendix?

I would have thought it would have to be a first generation cross, e.g. Mama TB(or QH) + Daddy QH(or TB) = baby Appendix. But I don't really have any data to support that opinion.:)

Yup, Peace. Most all QH will have TB somewhere in their bloodlines because that's part of how they were made. To be considered an Appendix Quarter Horse (from what I know) it should be a first generation cross, other wise they are just a Quarter Horse :)

Here is the official definition quoted from AQHA:
Appendix Horse BACK TO TOP
A horse registered with AQHA which is the result of breeding a Thoroughbred and an American Quarter Horse that has a permanent number, or a combination of an Appendix numbered American Quarter Horse and an American Quarter Horse with a permanent number. Appendix horses are distinguished by an "X" in front of their registration number and their certificates are gold.
There are three different mixes of horses that are eligible to be registered in AQHA's registry:
Registered Appendix (X) + Registered American Quarter Horse (QH) = Registered Appendix foal(X)
Registered American Quarter Horse (QH) + Registered American Quarter Horse (QH) = Registered American Quarter Horse foal (QH)
Recognized Thoroughbred (TB) + Registered American Quarter Horse (QH) = Registered Appendix foal (X)
Some examples of horses that are not eligible for registration with AQHA:
Appendix (X) + Appendix (X)' not eligible to be registered
(Unless one Appendix horse is eligible for advancement)
Thoroughbred (TB)+ Appendix (X)'not eligible to be registered
(Unless the Appendix horse advances)
American Quarter Horse (QH)+ Any other breed of horse besides a registered Appendix, acknowledged Thoroughbred, or registered American Quarter Horse not eligible to be registered with AQHA

Yep I would agree, appendix is a TB X QH, all QH have TB blood somewhere but it has to be 1st cross to be appendix.
Interesting, we are allowed to register a QH X anything else here, just gets labeled a Section 3, Part Bred.
