Breed Likes and Dislikes
 
This just came to me randomly, but now I'm curious.
Five common breeds are listed below. Copy and paste, and erase my answers. Write what you like and dislike about each breed (preferably based on experiences!)

Thoroughbred -
Likes: Beautiful athletes, great endurance horses. Very lovely to watch.
Dislikes: Tend to be high strung and unpredictable (more so than other breeds). To wily for my own good!

Quarter Horse -
Likes: Wonderful mover, very smart cow horses.
Dislikes: Too small and stocky undersaddle for me.

Paint -
Likes: Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Very elegant looking, too.
Dislikes: Hm............. I can't think of any, to be honest!

Arabian -
Likes: Tons of energy, great show horses. Seem to glow in the arena!
Dislikes: Way too high-strung for me!

Welsh Pony -
Likes: Adorable. Often seen as a child's pony. Very cute, very sweet.
Dislikes: Often in-bred with bad bloodlines.

Your turn!

Thoroughbred:
Like: Fast, Athletic
Dislike: Their builds. I don't find them very attractive.

Quarter Horse:
Like: Versatility, Builds, Gentle temperments, Loyal, Stockiness, Athletic, Very Intelligent
Dislike: The halter horse bred ones. And the fact that all the QHs seem to be related to each other.

Paint:
Like: Well, the coloring of course!
Dislike: The fact that they won't seperate the paints from the AQHA!!

Arabian:
Like: Their movement
Dislike: EVERYTHING else. The dished heads, the fact that they have one less vertebrate, their builds, etc. etc. etc. etc. their flightyness, etc etc.

Welsh Pony:
Like: Their builds, they are CUTE, a very versitale breed
Dislike: Some come with that "pony" attitude. :P

Thoroughbred:
Like: Athletic, when in work and good shape are very attractive.
Dislike: Often difficult keepers, injury prone, not very practical riding horses in my opinion (high maintenance)

Quarter Horse:
Like: Easy keepers, Agile, Fast, Stocky, cattle sense.
Dislike: Halter bred QH, the fact that any with any cattle potential cost a bajillion dollars, the geneitc diseases they refuse to breed out.

Paint:
Like: Awesome colouring! Many fo the same as the QH
Dislike: That a lot fo people breed for colour ONLY, resulting in a lot of low quality paints.

Arabian:
Like: Loyalty, heart, edurance.
Dislike: The fact that if not trained in a specific way most are hard to handle/not very good for much except endurance. With the right handling though they are great.

Welsh Pony:
Like: CUTE! fast, easy keepers.
Dislike: Attitude, susceptibility to founder.

Yes, but the AQHA and APHA are allowing this double registered crap, even though the APHA people want the paint to be considered its own little breed, yet they can't seperate themselves from the AQHA for some reason..

Sorry. Mini rant. lol
