I can pretty much appreciate any breed for certain jobs. I will be horse shopping within the next 1-2 years and I am not limiting myself to a breed and my outlooks have changed on what I want in a horse as far as past vs. present goes because I've turned into somewhat of a weenie. I will probably call up a friend first who has TB's and ask her what she's got going on because I trust her training and judgement but will pursue other options too. I thought I'd end up with another TB and still could, but as I've told that friend I have no idea what I will end up with when horse shopping next. Something that suits my needs is all I care about, it could be a TB, WB, STD, QH, Arab, or a random cross of some sort. What it comes down to for me is suitability for the task at hand.
