Thanks for the input.
Fortunately the Andalusian spirit and brio is something that I want. It's part of my mare's temperament as well and I want to keep it. Both she and this Andalusian stud are very sweet and sensible, but they're also full of spunk. They're spicy without being flighty, and that's exactly what I like.
I do think that for more dressage purposes the Andalusian would be better. A lot of the cob studs I see are very drafty, and while I like them to be sturdy I don't want them so built up they don't have any flexibilty.
Even the half-andalusians tend to sell for a fairly good price... if I absolutely positively had to sell the foal at some point, which most definitely would not be my intention.
