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!

As for color...that is never a good reason to breed and should ALWAYS be the absolute LAST thing on your list when you look at stallions.
I was mostly just poking fun, the way you worded your post sounded like you were infering that unless the colt inherited the Paint side, that it would have a poor temperament.

Just curious as to what your short list is at this point?

The reason I would shy away from him is because both the get they have as examples are showing the exact same thing - flashy in front, not quite right in the back.

However, I am but a novice, sharing what I see. I may be really far off with it, just my observations.

I still like him. I think with the right mare, he makes nice babies.

UB40 is gorgeous, im partial to a big chestnut though. Looks like he has very nice movement, has a nice show record, as do his offspring, and seems to stamp his get with color and a pretty head.

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson
