    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.
