If you have the time, effort and money to get him, id say go for it. But...make sure his work ethic is up to your standards and he has the disposition you want to deal with.

He's a little old, but not "old" old...So, he's got a shot. As long as he isnt pushed and his brain fries.

LOL I'm sorry. I'm just not in a hurry and I am not due to get a load of hay for a couple weeks.

I'm still going to try to talk him into selling me a colt by that stallion lol....

Honestly, if you're breeding your mare in the spring ...then id say no...I wouldn't. Never know when you'll need $ for an emergency...plus shell be eating for 2.

But you know your finances better than the rest of us.

Depends on what your horse market is at home. Do people buy older horses as quick as they buy young ones? That might be a big selling advantage actually.
Maybe consider this, after he's gelded, you could put about a week on him? That way you could asses his training, and the owner wouldn't lose anything. He'd actually be getting a free weeks tune up. Just a thought.

Just a heads up.... this horse is in good condition, be he is lacking on grooming. Please no flaming.

Anyways, here are the pics. The photo quality isn't that great bc it was dark and he needs cleaned up, but his confo is nice. He's penned up with a yearling colt, so he gets along with other horses well. He was super quiet and friendly, very in your pocket. He is 15.2h+ and just as wide. I love his big feet and thick bone.

Here is his pedigree: http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/stud2

The "stud" in your allbreed link seems a little sketchy. Is this really his pedigree, and his registered name? Confo wise, he's not my kinda guy. I wouldn't breed to him. Long back, too straight of shoulder angle, neck ties in weird. Just all around kind of "off" as far as confo goes. But, that's just my personal opinion. I would def go with a younger horse who has some better blood to back him up. Unless I'm missing something on his breeding that I just don't know about...???

Your confo critique is the exact opposite. Not sure where you're seeing a straight shoulder and long back. His shoulder is what I like the most. He has beautiful confo. I was quite impressed with him when I finally saw him up close.

I chose to add him to allbreed and I chose not to use his registered name since I do not own him.

And as I said, I don't want him as a stud. I want him as a GELDING. Whether or not you'd breed to him is irrelevant.
