Does one breed always have the same behaviour problems?

Is it true that:

All arabs are stubbon, and really energitic

All Quarter horses are doppy

All Thoroughbreds are stupid in the head-cyco

All Warmbloods are either hot or just plain stupid

Are all those predictions of the breeds true? I have a QH cross and he is well fairly dopey and my TB is Dopey too-except when jumping . So there you go I proved that one TB isn't loopy in the head.! Its weird you know, could you help??

Could you prove the 'predictions' wrong with your horse?

Heh...no, its not true:/
Could name many horses I've met over the years that don't fit their breed stereotype.

Mmmm yeh but when we are looking for a horse in a mag or something-well I know I do, I skip the appys, and arabs because of this sterotype that goes with the name I guess.

I tend to think that it is more genetic characteristics rather than breed, this is not taking into account training.

I worked at a stud that bred warmbloods, holsteiners in particular. They had 4 breeding stallions of different bloodlines but you could always pick their progeny from the characteristics that were shown, same goes for the mares and their progeny. So I never looked at it as a 'breed characteristic' as all the horses were different and we only had one that I could classify as the stereo typical 'dumblood' as people like to call them though he was extremely mentally challenge so could have made up for all the others that weren't

Okay, I WILL agree with that. Well said, Frog.

Very well said Frog. Although I will say that there are breed tendencies, there are always exceptions. IMO QH are calmer as a breed than say Arabs or TBs. Not because they are "crazy" but because they are more sensitive and inquisitive. (I didn't say smarter)

Now, do these breeds have "tendencies" because of the foundation parents had certain characteristics that have (for the most part) been bred true? I can't honestly say. But is does give one pause for thought.

8) O OK, SO IN SAYING THAT ARABS COULD HAVE A DIFFERENT TEMP-EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE ARABS AND THEY ARE SUPPOSE TO BE WELL HOT.
