    If all you're interested in are stereotypes, then he's going to be a half calm, half stubborn horse. But since stereotypes aren't actually what determine these things - who knows! You need to post specific information about the mare & stallion if you want a serious answer.

    Well im definitely not going to let their reputation stop me from getting the foal. Im just wanting everyones opinions on Appaloosa's and QH's. The mare and stud are both dolls. An 11 year old begginer rides the stud in shows. The mare is a halter girl.

    I'm with everyone else. Jsut because its a hotblooded breed doesn't mean ts high strung. My coldblooded pony is the hyperist, crazyist, highstrung horse ever. If you want our opinions on temperament or what you'll get out of the mare and stallion give us pictures and tell us the temperament of the mare/stallion.

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.

    I think you answered your own question.

    I think that the disposition is going to be ok if the handling is from the beginning. But not always do horses act better just because they were handled alot in the beginning, my gelding is a butt head almost everyday and we were hands on from day one....

    I have 9 Appaloosas on my farm at the present time,and their personalities vary quite a bit. I have 3 that are very quiet, willing, and affectionate, one that is very sweet but also smart and naughty, one that tends to be shy and almost panicky, one that tries hard but is clumsy and accident prone, one that is super athletic, talented, kind of hot, but absolutely loves people and would do anything asked as long as it was explained so she could understand (and who I would NEVER put an inexperienced rider on), and one that is totally bomb proof beginner safe......

    It depends on bloodlines, training, ealy handling, how their mommas acted, and etc. Without knowing more about the breeding and individual temperaments of the parents, its pretty impossible to guess on the foal's temperament, other than to say the foal could be a blend of mom and dad's personalities, or could lean more toward one or the other, or could be completely its own unique self..... with the caveat that some of their attitude usually comes more from mom since she raises the foal.

    Typically... and this is just going off the information that I've read, TYPICALLY.... the foal will mirror the dam for the most part..... typically...
