The ones I was around were often "explosive" when put under pressure. However, once they were fully trained they would think before acting. There's one gelding who I became very fond of and he had the sweetest personality, but when he was younger he would launch when asked for a lead change or introduced to something he found of difficulty. Another mare, who was otherwise sweet, was excruciatingly hot under saddle. But otherwise she had perfect ground manners.

    Now, it could very well be their breeding, seeing as they came from the same breeder, but I'm fairly certain they had different sires.
    I would never base my opinion of a breed on TWO horses from the same breeder, regardless of bloodlines. So much of their early handling can affect their training. It's much more likely, IMO, that they were not handled properly and soured by those experiences. As I said, thinking horses for sure, and they don't tolerate foolishness. Anyway...

    Thanks for the compliments from everyone! The girls may look like little things, but I'd venture to guess that the chestnut filly is a good 42" already, if not better. She is absolutely huge. Her dam is over 16.2hh, as is her sire. She is going to be a giant!

    ^ just for the record, I am by no means trying to put down the breed or start an argument. Those were just two examples and I've had experience with many more than that.

    I love the breed and they tend to be amazing partners. Your foals are close to the cutest things I've ever seen!
