EmilyJoy - originally, I was positive that I was going to breed her to a QH or Paint. But once I got thinking about it, I realized that since my goal was to hopefully lighten up the build of the foal and add a bit of height, a QH type wasn't the best option. I ALMOST bred her to a foundation QH last year... but thing is, they really weren't built all that differently - short, stocky, thick.
I'm still a huge QH fan (especially foundation), but for River, I think something taller and lighter is a better option.
That's why I've begun to look at TB's and Warmbloods!
