There may be some truth to this statement!
I have an Impressive gelding who is one of the calmest horses I've ever known. Have never heard anyone complain about behavior when it comes to Impressive lines however, I did own a Sonny Dee mare who was always extremely high strung. I took her to a lot of places, desensitized her like crazy and she did OK but you had to handle her with kid gloves
She also had very bad hooves for her entire life, often was ouchy for a couple days after a reset and then wouldn't hold shoes for more than 5 weeks.
Her dam (the Sonny Dee side) was in the same barn and every other foal she threw would be like my mare and some much worse.
I think your farrier just has a predjudice against Impressive horses or he just heard it somewhere and took it as gospel!
I saw your other post about pain problems in both of your horses after this guy got done doing them-I'd start to be a little suspicious of him unless you've been using him for many years with no problems.
