I LOVE his pattern, and color. But, I don't really like his legs, and the fast he has no real conformation shots.

Not a conformation expert at all but he is in my opinion a beautiful medicine hat and I xeem to remember there's a specific name for the chest coloring too but I can't remember the name right now. I dont do any horse breeding but sure would love to have this guy even as a gelding.

Ohhh, the halter folks LOVE that N/H stuff! Bred to an N/N mare, the worst that can happen is another N/H.....they kinda forget that with HYPP the horse can be/is affected.

I went to the AQHA World Show Sale and while it was primarily performance folks and horses, there were some halter ones in the lots and the N/H ones actually took a hit on their sales prices compared to the performance lines. While I hate to see any horse take a price hit in this economy, I was actually encouraged by that. It appears at least AQHA folks are starting to sit up and take notice.

Do you mean a shield?

This stallion is a very, very pretty color IMAO. One of my favorites! Certainly he has that wow factor, and I bet his foals would get a lot of white. Are you prepared to have a foal who needs to wear a sun-blocking fly mask year round? :P

As I'm sure you've been finding with your search for a good Paint stallion, it's hard to find one with half-decent hind legs. Even if he was OLWS and HYPP N/N (your mare has frame, right?) I still wouldn't consider him if he had bad hind legs. I would take the fact that there are no conformation pictures available as an indication that they are trying to hide a bad conformation flaw.

Another thing is that he appears in all pictures to toe out from the knee in in his front legs. My own Paint mare has this problem and, believe me, you don't want to touch the possibility of front legs like that with a ten foot pole. Yikes, it is a disaster!

He is gorgeous though :3

I am here to learn! :)
