Therefore I was considering investing the extra money (1-4K) in another breed, possibly trying to pick up a couple long yearling geldings. I've considered a few breeds and crosses, including draft sport, Arabs, Welshies, (wish I could afford a Canadian ^_^) and Lusitano.
We would be doing flat work (Country, HUS.) I really like the baroque look and I'm looking for a breed that could turn a decent profit (1-2 years with me, I'd like to try to average at least 100% profit from purchase price, so If I got a 2K yearling or green 2yr old I 'd want to turn it around for something like 4K) in sales of pleasure and started-for-show mounts.
I keep going back to Morgans, particularly the foundation bred lines. But I've never even lead a morgan, so I have no real clue about their basic temperaments and trainability. I've read all kinds of breed profiles, but every breed profile says that the breed they speak for is the greatest.
So if someone with experience could give me their opinions on Morgans, or a another breed that that might suit my goals, I would appreciate it. Heh...I fear I'm asking a bit much. ^_^
