I was going to breed him as a two year old if I got him riding well and he showed promise as a cutting horse. If not, I was going to geld him and start him lightly on barrels and do trail until the next year. As far as the herda goes, I read something that says it shows up in foals who are positive for it by the time they are two, and before I bred him, I would test him on that at the same time I DNA typed him. Why did you want to know?
    I was just curious as to why you wanted to breed him since he doesn't have a show record and isn't trained in anything to make him marketable to a potential buyer for his offspring. There are way too many babies on the ground now that need new homes and alot of them have diseases such as HERDA that should have never been born to begin with.

    I would get him DNA tested and await the results before making the decision for sure, but that's just me being responsible. If he carries anything that can be passed on in a negative fashion i'd have him gelded immediately.

    Lol, I have a tendency to be barn blind about my horses, but anyone elses I can point out flaws immediately. I've decided not to breed him because he kicked the fence and now has a partial bowed tendon in the back, which may render him unridable. My trainer and I took a look at him and decided he would be better off as a gelding, than a stud because he lacks muscle mass, although he is really pretty. Im going to post a for sale message on the other message board. I bought him for quite a bit not even halter broke, but since he may not be able to do any heavy riding, im going to give him a good home for $600.

    Lol, believe it or not, he doesn't even pace the fence and I've got him to where he doesnt call or anything around the other horses when I'm with him. I've had more trouble with my yearling fillies than anyone else this year.

    They have both gotten hurt over the past couple months. Although he thinks he is a big boy and runs off anyone except the lead mare, lol. I had him penned by himslef, but with my other filly hurt I had to let him go and pen her up.

    Good thing is he is only turned out with a grey mare and donkeys, so no problem about the others getting bred accidently.
