All paints are crazy. All quarter horses are dead heads.

All drafts are plodders...oh, wait. Just kidding!!! Lol

I've heard that paints are dumber than dirt, TBs are all hot heads, arabs are flighty, QHs are the sanest horses you can get, and grades are worthless.

Mine is half draft and he does what we call the "Draft Horse Plod" when he doesn't want to do something or when we're headed out on a trail ride. He walks as slow as physically possible while still moving forward and no amount of squeezing, prodding or even kicking can make him go faster. Lol

Well these are probably well known .
Throroughbreds-spycho(sp?), hard keepers, hot/high energy, unpredictable etc most of these are commonly known but only apply to a few individuals. It also is mostly due to there feed whilst on the track that causes this.

Warmblood - the one thing I have constantly heard is dumbblood which is far from the truth from the one I kow he is extremely smart.

I can't think of anymore at the moment though.
