The Pro's of QH's, is that they are strong, hearty and have a lot of heart. The Con's of QH's for me, are their conformation. Now again, this depends on the breeding and the breeder and what their goals are of their stock. I've seen some very TBy QH's.
I grew up with QH's with small hooves, big bodies. Lots of hoof problems. Short and stocky. But again, I grew up in a very, very, very ranch/rodeo community who bred horses who are designed to work with cattle. I dislike this particular conformation.
I do however, like the Appendix due to there being TB in the mix.
Appaloosa's, I love Appy's. The only con I can think of is the Moonblindness. Now I know it can happen to any breed, but Appy's are known to be more vulnerable to this issue.
