Yeah, I really like the horses in his pedigree, and I loved him. So I am keeping my eye out for something similar, I wouldn't even mind buying a weanling in fall or something if it was similar in build and caught my eye. It may also wait until next year too, I have plenty of work to do with my mare, so it will be a timing thing. I just gotta see what kind of time I have, and stuff. But if I found something, I would have to take it up, and make the time if I didn't have it. The mare I have now is amazing, but I have a weakness for a paint that looks like the one I had. This was him.

Plus knowing a pedigree and whether a horse is true to its breeding gives you more of an edge to produce what you're looking for. If a horse is not true to its breeding and is essentially a "freak" (not necessarily a bad thing) then it is less likely to pass on the desirable traits to its offspring.
Not to mention knowing things like if there is a potential for HYPP, GEB, CA, LFS, Herda, etc.
Breeding a dead/affected foal is rather counter-productive.
