    Which ever breed you like the most. You should have a joy and passion for the breed you choose. Otherwise it just wont be as fun.

    If you are an adult, then yes, choose what you are into! If you a a young'un, and are doing 4H showmanship, then I'd suggest a bantam breed, or smaller breed of LF, as they are easier to handle, for what is expected.

    Also if you are new to showing/breeding for show. Solid colors are easier to breed and a lot of times a solid black or white is what wins..
