After more than 30 years breeding Quarter Horses, Dan McWhirter Quarter Horses has featured Hall of Fame Stallions The Big Investment and The Invester, as well as Good Asset and other, top-performing stallions. But, it’s Absolute Investment that’s siring the current generation of performance horses that are proving themselves in the show pen.
“Absolute Investment is so consistent in the quality of each individual he produces,” says McWhirter. “With him we’ve built on our goal of producing horses with great minds, balance and conformation, but it’s the predictability of his foals that’s truly unique – he stamps them with his superior, Absolute Bloodlines attributes.”
