Well, since I have a 6 month old I'm not going to cut unless he grows up to have bad conformation, no drive, a bad attitude, things like that.
Bloodlines aren't a huge deal to me, but I love paints, especially tricolor with a blue eye or two. As for bloodlines, I like to see Doc, Poni, Skippin, or Poco, but the little boy I have now has Two Eyed Jack. As for temperment, I like my stallions to act like geldings. Sensible and calm, ruled by the brain in their head and not the one between their legs. My boys sire was a sweet boy, even ridable, and paid no attention to the mares on the other side of the fence, or the other stallion they had.
When I had a ranch, I also looked for studs with good cow sense, but since I don't plan on doing any cow events and my cattle are watched by someone else and a state away, that wasn't as big of a deal this time.
