We breed for temperment and disposition, we do not think that conformation or bloodlines.

^ straight off the homepage for her website. This is very sad to see. Confirmation IS important! And FYI temperment/disposition is the same thing.

Not a breeder myself but ridden 7 years at a stable in which they also bred horses...

Also bloodline is important. There are recessive attributes in bloodline which don't perhaps exist in your horse but will exist in the offspring. It's also important that mare/stud bloodlines work out together so you can maximize the quality of offsping. That serves the race best and helps to develop it.

About the question to geld or not... Like I said I'm not a breeder and I don't have an eye for potential breediing material so I can't 'rate' your horse but I can give some advice: search more information about your stallion's bloodline and other studs in that breed so you can do a bit comparison. Try to clarify some things like if your stallion can give something to the breed or not? Can you offer proper environment for breeding? Base your decision on things like that.

I would say unless you can afford to prove this horse by showing him all over, gelding would be in HIS best interests.

Nothing about him, really tells me that he would do really well in the top show ring; I am extremely picky about conformation, bloodline and temperment. I will let temperment slide some if the horse's conformation is perfect and he has an impeccable show record to back up his bloodlines. However, I don't want something that is hard to handle by any means, he should atleast have somewhat of a stable mind.

I don't mean to sound snarky but you just got him and you are already posting him with a stud fee of $75...What kind of money do you think a foal that came out of a $75 stud fee is going to bring? Where do you think the foals are going to end up...? If I had a foal out of a $1000 stud fee and one out of a $75 stud fee which one do you think I'd end up keeping and sending to a trainer and showing and all that jazz? Which one do you think I'd be more likely to sell the second I need extra cash?

oh yes i remeber her now. awhile back she wanted to bred her mares, to some fugly unregistered stallion. wow poco, that is ridiculous, back yard breding at its finest. at least now she has registered stllion "rolls eyes" unfortunantly, whatever we say to her is probably going to go in one ear and out another. YOU SHOULD GELD HIM!!!!!!!!!!

quarter horses.....simply the best

I think I'll outsnarky everyone. If you are going to go to the trouble of having a website, PLEASE LEARN TO SPELL! Also - If you just HAVE to have stallions at stud, you might consider:

1) Clean them up before taking their picture, and show them in a background that does not detract from their appearance.

2) Before doing #1, make sure that there is a good reason to want to breed to your stallion - halter points, show points, incredible roping horse, cutting horse...something other than a sweet natured pasture pet.

However - with that bloodline, you probably won't get too many takers, I am thinking...
