Well, I can speak for the temperment of a two that I knew intimately. I had a mare (from the time she was a filly) out of an own daughter of peponita. She was an amazing and wonderful girl that I will forever miss. Both she and her mama were built like tanks and as calm, cool and collected and gentle as the day is long and easy to work w and train (** think sweet old plow horse, even as a baby! **) but put them on cattle - and "poof" they could turn it on w the best of them.
However, I worked w a peppy san badger stud (he was not mine) that was wonderful in every way (temperment, confirmation, etc.,)...except, his pasterns were way too "straight up". I have no idea if that was unique to just him or common to that line. As gorgeous as he was, I did not want a baby by him b/c of it.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
