They have good conformation, unbelievable sweet dispositions, their offspring are easy to train )some say born broke), they are proven in show ring & breeding shed. If I said they were perfect I would be a liar, but they are worthy of reproducing and have proven that. My other stallion is Painted Coos younger (14 yr old) 1/2 brother through dam - A Spectacular Flash whom I'm sure is also not perfect but close enough for me & the people who have his offspring.

I agree.. This "perfect" thing is a sad commentary on those who profess themselves experts, when in reality, anyone with a sane mind knows better.
No horse is perfect. I choose mine as you do yours-- temperament foremost, and informed breeding as a rule.. ;)
