I love my TB. I wasn't looking for any breed in particular in a first horse, but he was just what I happened to come upon and I liked him enough to buy him. He is a hard keeper, but I think if he were on pasture instead of a dry lot, he'd keep well enough in addition to everything else we feed him (five flakes, and between 6-8 quarts feed) He is a handful on the ground, he has a HORRIBLE attitude and loves to be testy, but under saddle he is perfect. He is so willing and attentive to try just about everything. But, he is very unsure of himself. He doesn't like do do things the first time, and then after that he goes on with it like a pro. He is also more sensitive than other horses I've ridden, which I guess is a good thing because he's taught me how to lighten myself up and use my seat/legs more efficiently.
