Opinions on this stallion..


I was thinking of putting one of my broodmares to this Irish draught stallion (17h), I know he's a bit over-weight, he was out all winter and the mans just getting him back into work now. Has a lovely temperment and is very well bred (all Irish lines). Just for you folks that know your stuff on bone/conformation etc what do yous think?

We would need better pictures to tell. One from the front, one from the back, and a straight on profile picture. Pictures where we can see his entire legs, to tell if there are any faults there. From the pics you have, his back legs look a little odd? But it may just be the camera angle. Try and get pictures of him on a flat surface like concrete, and not at sunset, which can distort his figure. :)

These are the only other pics I have at the minute. He was up a hill so no flat/hard ground to stand him out on for a proper pic unfortuatley. Iv no pic of the the mare on my computer but she is of similar build to him, pure draught aswell.

Personally, I don't believe that stallion is breeding quality. I realize that the pictures are not that great for conformation and he is a bit overweight. However, from what I can see, he looks just like a fat, out of shape, light boned Percheron. He has little muscle definition, his neck is monstrous and ties in horribly with his small chest, and he has a weak rear end. In my opinion I would not breed a mare to him. Also we need to see pictures of your mare too, because it's not just the stallion who contributes to the offspring :)

Thanks for the feed back, the mares currently up the side of a mountain so I havent got round to taking any photos of her.. I havent made any solid decisions about this stallion. He is very very out of shape in this photo. But the owner showed me a few pics of him in work from 2years ago and I have to say you wouldnt have thought it was the same horse, very lean and toned (no big stag neck lol). I know he doesnt look like much in these pics but he's actually bred as they say "in the pink". His yougstock are all fantastic looking, big and strong and very gentle tempers. Iv a few others in mind but because this stallion is only 30mins down the road I thought thered be no harm in considering him.. Iv the details of another one I was thinking of on my computer Il post the pics and see what yous think

Without seeing pictures of the first being ridden, I like the second best. He looks accomplished.
