This is what I love about him; type AND substance. I've searched and it's hard to find a good balance of both. If you check out Sapphire Farms' site, you'll see that Sue Wells consistently produces an excellent balance of both, while breeding calm, tractable horses. I am amazed daily how obedient and laid back Dream is. Even around mares in season, he always defers to his human for direction. We regularly walk and work near the mares, and he keeps his attention on me. He has quite a lot of self-control for a young man, but he has been/is being trained well, so that surely lays a great foundation.
Temperament is one of the most important factors for me, and this guy's got it in spades.
