    DWBs are notoriously hot and usually are strictly a professional's horse.
    The reason he is so fine looking is because he is all TB/SF on the bottom.
    Definitely not my kind of stud at all.

    Really? That's actually very interesting to me, since the only Dutch horses I've had contact with are the stallion we had at our barn for awhile & a few of his offspring, all of who had lovely temperments. I didn't realise that wasn't the norm.

    I personally wouldn't breed to this horse myself, because a) his neck just looks awkward - he looks more like a young gelding than a mature stallion to me, & b) I wasn't impressed with his attitude around the jump course. I like more "manners" in my horses. But if anebel's correct, apparently that 2nd point is just a breed trait. However, I did think his babies looked quite lovely.

    The ones out of Samber and of that line are usually very well tempered, they are the only ones I have found who are super to handle. My mum has a Samber out of a TB mare who is a very sturdy boy, lovely movement, very quiet and a super temperament. And he should be a psycho judging from the breeds involved hahaha.
    From the other Dutch lines (Jazz, Voltaire, Ferro, Contango, etc..) I have been around and handled, I would stay faaar away from them. I like my sane little Swedish horse lol.

    Uhh...
    That's like saying all QH's are slow and placid. I have trained too many DWB's to think they fit any kind of stereotype. I have had personalities all the way across the board.

    I still wouldn't breed one for myself.
    Yes, not all QHs are slow and placid, but when you're going to see a QH you generally know what they are going to be like. The reason that there are breeds of horses in the first place is to distinguish between them very generally.
    I'm sure there are lots of well tempered KWPNs out there, but a lot (if not most) of them fit the stereotype IN MY EXPERIENCE. I PERSONALLY do not like the temperaments they have although they may be different from horse to horse, they are generally hot horses and very few are suitable for the amateur rider.

    Not trying to start an argument, just stating my opinion. Which apparently is more often controversial than not lol.

    Thank you for all of your opinions! I think I am going to breed him with my mare. I met some of his offspring and they are amazing both physically and mentally. They are all very quiet and have awesome personalities. Wish me luck with him :) (PS: There are better pictures and videos of him and his offspring on Facebook. He has his own page, lol)

    Personaly that stallion would be gelded if he were on my yard. There is nothing special about him that would justify continueing his lines (Just going on the photos, link doesnt work for me)

    Thankfully my lad is of the Samber lines (colour and all!!) he is beautifully mannered and is a saint to handle, an old head on young shoulders (he is only 3.5 years ols).

    Personaly whilst I agree generaly the other lines are best left to proffessionals, I would contest that it isnt because the horses are too hot for an amature.
    I personaly believe that it is because these horses are highly intellegent and generaly pushed quite hard to excell whilst young thus if you make a mistake they will remember and take advantage.
