Thanks! I do too :p They are just such versatile, good using horses with lovely temperaments. Because we are a relatively new breed (At least compared to the QH) they haven't started breeding for extremes yet - I hope they never do. Of course, there are a lot of ASH out there who have noodle necks and blocky heads, but the majority of them are just really nice horses. It is so hard narrowing down studs - But I have always had a soft spot for Abduls progeny - They are all stamped so strongly you couldn't mistake one and some of the sons progeny is just stunning. I actually think all is sons I know of (About 5 I think) Are ALL black - What a record - And all have the lovely neck and head.
* And a bit of trivia - The first ASH stallion to be exported to Canada, and who is now doing really well in working cow horse events (Also one of my favourites) is another Palmers Fort Abdul son - And lo and behold, he is beautiful and black as well!
This is him, Cadabra:
