How About This Stallion With My Mare?

I'm sort of currious. Would this make a good match for my mare? Full critque PLEASE (Stallion wise) :)

I'm going off of this picture since they don't seem to have good conformation photos.



He's a little bit butt high.
Sickle hocked and maybe cow-hocked?
His hind-end looks weak compared to the rest of him.
He has a very upright gaskin.
Stands under himself in the front.
Steep croup.

Overall, I don't like him. I think your mare deserves higher quality.

I don't know if you want a pure QH for your mare but I am very curious to learn what other confo experts think of this stallion. Go to this site and click on Brooks or Dun's picture to see a larger picture of his confo shot. I am in love but I want to know the technical details.

TABOR RANCH

There are also 5 other stallions to choose from on this site and I believe 2-3 are QH's.

Thanks. I was wondering too. :) I was looking to breed her to an Invitation Only stud so I can cross a daughter if it turns out to be a girl. I met a guy who was friends with my boys breeder and told me what would cross excellent with him and what not. :) I was so happy to get that kind of information. It doesn't happen that way. :) thanks for the oppinion!

I do like Brooks or Dun...He looks to be a nicely put together stallion. The only things I don't like are how short his neck is and the lack of bone in his legs. He's halter, what can I expect? But, I'd like more bone to his skinny legs.

I personally don't like how thick his muscling is but again, he's halter bred. They also don't list his HYPP status of LWO status.

His son "Just As Predicted" actually catches my eye more than Brooks or Dun does. I really like him.

Hmm. I do like the Brooks or Dun. But he's a halter horse. :)

Invitation Only is a great performance horse, I would definitely breed those lines. Our little filly is out of Special Invitation, and she turned out to be a real nice little lady. We also bred out an AMAZING colt by By Appointment Only, so the lines carry through great for pleasure.

EDIT: Oh, and did I mention that anything with Invitation Only is selling like hot cakes right now?

What discipline are you looking for? I have lots of free time and love to drool over new stallions....

I'd be really interested if someone can help me combine a variety of Invitation Only bred stallions young or aged that has great confo, temperment, trainability, and reasonable stud fee. Some stallions are set too high is why I say that.

WyndellaRose- I'm into western pleasure, horsemanship, western riding, and trail events. :) if you could find a stallion along that bloodline or Zippos Mr Good Bar I'd be greatful! Thanks! I'll be continuing to look as well :)

To me it seems the young lady didn't stand him up properly, that he's gotten away with standing bunched. His pose is all wrong for a halter or showmanship class.
