Many of the horse registries are closed to general public access. Doesn't the owner have a copy of her papers you could look at?

She is a pretty mare. I saved the pedigree as a pdf file.

That mare would be good for just about anything judging by that pedigree. Wonder why the current owner isn't showing it off?

The owner may not know about bloodlines, plus a pedigree is only an indication of what the mare be good at, not a guarantee.

Some people have a prejudice against certain bloodlines too. I have a friend who won't have anything with Doc Bar in his barn because some of them can have an attitude when young. He had one that was a bucker and that ruined him on the bloodline.

Chippie, thank you for that information a lady was trading for this mare and wanted me to straighten her out when she got it home, but I think the deal fell apart.
And thanks everyone else for your opinion, I have heard good and bad about "Doc bar" seems like they come 2 ways good or bad and no middle.
good luck
