How should we know?? Breed and registration does not determine temperement. Without personally knowing the parents there is no way to predict. The baby could be a demon or an angel on four legs. Raising of the horse(s) also has alot to do with it.

well breed does give you an idea, raising does alot, but if the horse is a hotblooded horse breed its going to be a whole lot more highstrung. If its a coldblood the more draft breeds are usually calmer. Warmbloods may be gorgeous, but they are used as sporthorses for a reason. Arabs are known for a more high strung horse. AQHA are known as calmer. Mules are STUBBORN. Every animal gets a reputation. IF YOU MUST KNOW. So yes that's how you would know. Thank you very much.

It was simple!

I'm with paintsrule on this one. I had 2 ottb's who were bombproof babysitters. If I had judged on breed reputation, I would never have had the privilege of owning and learning from them.
