Yes, it was the versatility of his offspring that really drew me to him... and his height. I'm hoping for a bit of a taller horse. He also moves very nicely, which I also liked.
My overall impression of him was pretty positive. He has a very quiet temperament. My six and eight year old nephews were with me (with the stallion owner's permission of course) and were making tons of noise, petting him, scratching him, etc. and he barely batted an eyelash. He was a little more excitable when I dropped Lilly off a couple of weeks ago, but there was also 80+km/hr winds which he really didn't enjoy - but I don't know many horses that do. I've seen one of his foals born this year to a grullo mare and she is a good looking filly.
