    Default Justin Morgans Figure ---- Totalis today

    Justin Morgan had a horse named Figure, whose breeding consisted of Arabian/TB/Barb/Fresian breeding, and that was the foundation of a "new breed" in the US.

    I feel it's very likely in the future that Totalis could seriously influence horses, as long as he can produce progeny like him. Totalis is a culmination of the best of the best of the best of many years of of the best that careful warmblood, TB, and Arab lines produce (as many people know, only the best Arab and TB, and select others are brought into the breeding scheme).

    Could a future breed come about? Or will he be the Donnerhall of our time?

    It has been noted that his temperment, conformation, general health, and durability are all very high per breeding standards, along with, of course his performance record.

    It seems possible to me.

    it would be nice if he can pass those to his babies... we still don't know if he can "stamp" them or not and also we don't know how "ridable" his babies will be. He is quite hot himself.

    but that breed probably would be still KWPN Dutch, they had highly talented horses for a while now. Actually if you can look at the statistics of USDF top dressage horses, KWPN has the highest numbers out of all breeding registries.

    Or may be TRAKEHNER will make a strong come back since his sire is a solid trak

    anyway, he has a solid Dutch on one side and solid Trak on another side. Not much of a mix of drastically different breeds.
