There are certain aspects that I don't like about certain breeds but I still like the breed itself. Though most of them I have no interest in owning. These are the reasons for my dislike of certain breeds. (all stereotypes and personal experience)
TBs= tend to be hot and flighty. Too dainty with small bones and not enough muscle mass for a large frame. After growing up with QH's, TB's just look scrawny. Too tall for roping.
Arabs= same as TB, tend to be hot and flighty. Too small for most cow work and seem really skinny and really short. Plus I really don't like the dish face look.
QHs= really dislike the breeding in recent years. Bred to be either way too compact with short neck, short back, short legs, and way too much muscle or tall and gangly like a tb. Hard to find what I consider quality QHs anymore.
Paints and Appaloosas= not really much difference in the two in my opinion. There has been so much cross breeding done that these breeds are really nothing more than QHs with color and suffer the same flaws. Plus, I don't like my horses to have too much white on them.
That being said, there are exceptions to every rule.
