Short Keel vs Normal

Could someone explain to newbi lke myself..what is the difference between a boat with a normal (longer?) keel and the same boat with a shorter keel.??
I am asking about the sailing performance...I would think that the shorter keel one would be much less stable than the other one.. How much does this affect the stability curve?
