It’s been said many times that prior proper planning prevents a poor performance. It’s referred to as the three Ps and lectured through generations. Large Bills Please, a 2004 American Quarter Horse Association Stallion, has his own set of Ps: pedigree, performance and personality.

The first P of the bald-faced bay stallion’s set is his pedigree. It reads like a who’s who in the annals of American Quarter Horse history, having lineage that includes household names like Smart Little Lena on the Sire’s side and Dual Pep and Doc’s Hickory in his Dam’s lines.

The second P of the equation is the performance of the all-around dynamo. Having claimed victory in many different events, including Performance Halter, Reining, Ranch Horse Versatility, Ranch Riding and Dally Team Roping Heeling throughout the course of his short AQHA show career, his accolades are many. He passes that ability to perform at a high level onto his offspring and has several AQHA point-earners and World Show qualifiers in his downline.

Those qualities, both possessed and inherited, are the third P to the trifecta, which is personality.

“This horse has a personality that will win you over in a heartbeat. He is a very kind, gentle being full of cute little quirks,” said his owner, Paulette Woods. “He has a nice small head with a lot of chrome that shows up on many of his foals as well. All of these things combine to form a personality on a horse that can be witnessed from afar. I am thrilled at the legacy he is building.”
