THE LOUISIANA STORY

EQUUS - - Insights Conformation -

Finer-limbed and more up­right through the shoul­der than Peter McCue, Della Moore none­the­less proved her­self to be a tough, sound mare of in­domitable courage, who pro­duced sev­eral im­por­tant foun­da­tional Quar­ter Horse sires men­tioned in the text.

Della Moore’s pedi­gree in many ways par­al­lels that of Peter McCue. Like him, she is close to three-quar­ters Thor­ough­bred and also car­ries the same even bal­ance of Herod vs. Eclipse sire-lines, with one line to Matchem. She presents mul­ti­ple lines to high-qual­ity horses known for sound­ness as much as speed: Touch­stone, Sir Peter Tea­zle, Lex­ing­ton and Sir Archy.

An ex­cel­lent chalk ren­di­tion by Cheri Luce of Della Moore’s sire, Dedier or “D.J.,” which was made in con­sul­ta­tion with many Louisianans who knew and re­mem­bered the stal­lion. Note the big hindquar­ters, fine neck, sub­stan­tial hocks, and short, up­right fore pasterns.
