Conformation On Stallions

I've notice somethings quite odd. I just looked around the stallions people had for sale and at stud and noticed quite a few things about some in perticular. So far I have seen over the knees(Badly), extremely longed back(probably longer than my stallions'), roach back, ect....My ultimate quesitons are....Is there a perfect conformation stallion? I would expect no, but How do you judge what is good enough? There are some UGLY stallions out there labeled Stud Quality/Prospect.....From I've seen, I don't know what to think anymore. I was only on a website for five minutes and wanted to shoot my computer out of it's misery. Not reflecting on any stallions in perticular. Just a heads up

*Reason I was looking was because I was looking at the markets.

What have you been looking at? I don't think any stallion is perfect - that's the art of breeding. You find a stallion who has performed well and throws good genetics, then you find a mare who will hopefully fill in the flaws of that stallion to create the next, hopefully better, generation. As far as horses I think are pretty perfect, I'd go with these:



But it's just personal preference.

Here is one stallion I was looking at. These were for sale.
Gorgeous Red Roan WP Longe Line Deluxe! Super Mover! | Buy this Horse at Equine.com
PROTECT YOUR ASSETS/THE INVESTER GELDING | Buy this Horse at Equine.com

These were only two of them. I was only browsing to see what was for sale as far as stallions go. I like several who are breeding, it's hard to find one that doesn't have a too bad of conformation shot unless millionair horses :)

*I wasn't going to buy either.

I've always been a fan of those of those stallions :)

That's because people think just because they have a name in their pedigree means the horse should be bred. You breed a horse like All Time Fancy to a hundred mares, one maybe two or three would be good enough as stallions. I don't care who's name is first in the pedigree, I have seen some butt ugly horses coming from Zippos Sensation that I wouldn't touch, and then you see some amazing horses.

The big secret is, big name stallion owners breed their stallions to a lot of their own nice mares - and they keep the best prospects. Any horse you get from the Simon's ranch isn't going to be the next world champion, because they keep the best picks to make money. If I see a "stallion prospect" for sale anywhere, I would be highly suspicious unless someone got really lucky with their mare.

EDIT: Please realize this is me being jaded and that this information is probably not 100% true, lol xD

As much as we look at the stallions.....

How we look the mare is also important.

How we feed her and how we feed and care for the foal.

The colt out of my mare last year is at this point looking like a stallion prospect. It is not hard to find one it is that you might not find one from some big time breeder or the stallion owner as they either keep it as the next generation if their stallion is getting old or they geld it no matter what to limit the compitition.

You do not seem to see this as much in reining and cutting but that is more do to the fact that the price of a nice stallion prospect is going to be A LOT higher then a gelding. SO unless the colt is really bad you rarely see them gelded until they are a bit older.

One thing i have noticed is that in the European sport horse registries the approve far fewer stallions for breeding. I think the figure i saw was about 3%.

there are performance aspects to satisfy as well as showing the stallion with his get before a final permanent breeding lisence is given. imagine if we had something like that is the usa. I'm sure it would improve the quality of horses in the registry.
