Well said. Even some quarterhorse lines are not so amateur friendly, chuckle. Certainly there are a number of Stallion lines that are marketedly producing good gaits, talent and rideability, in all the registries. Love the Flemmingh that I have seen. Think the Idocus progeny are doing very well in NA as well, and temperment hasn't seemed to be an issue. But, we forget, all the time, (guilty too) that the dam has a great deal to do with it all. Not only her bloodlines, but her actual mothering talents. We imprint foals, and so does mom!! Some of the nicest rideability/work ethic I am receiving, is from a trakehner stallion out of trakehner mares. Interesting. Our deceased KWPN stallion didn't physically mark his fillies, but his sons. The thing he passed on the best to all was a great work ethic, gaits and rideability. Hard to measure till they are doing work. But to me, the very best things to pass on.
