Wow, what a monster! My first instructor's husband rode an 18 hand warmblood. I rode him once...could not believe how far away the ground was O_o. I guess I was like 9 at the time, but still, that memory really stuck with me:P
Anyway, as you have pointed out, its kind of a craps shoot as to what you'll get sometimes. Finding an older stud with well-documented offspring of a certain size is probably your best bet, but you never know what the dam is going to throw in.
