I'm looking at a five year old paint gelding, he's listed as 'breeding stock' unregistered but ready to be, all papers included. He's a palomino, looks like he has splotches of white- but faint, considering his light colour, with one blue eye. I always assumed breeding stock was a term reserved for broodmares, but it's stuck on this gelding's add so I'm a bit curious.
Was going to ask for critiques but the pictures provided aren't great, will definitely be taking him on trial and putting up some pictures and videos for you guys to pick apart! I'm looking at him as a project for a mid-level show horse, HUS and English pleasure to start. He's five, like I said above, has been lightly started walk / trot with a bit of canter- I like that he hasn't been thrown over tonnes of big fences at this age, my current gelding was started over fences at around five (where as my last was started at four, the one I was just leasing even younger) and he's much more sensible about it than they were. I'll be working closely with my trainer, might be re-selling, might be keeping him, not sure yet. They're asking $1500.
**Extra info means nothing to this question, but thought I'd share**
On another note, I heard somewhere there were supplements you could use to make the palomino colour 'richer'- thoughts?
