Agreed. Horse isn't at all underweight.
OP, I'm not really sure what you want from this thread. Do you want honest opinions about why we do or don't think he's stallion material, or do you just want people to gush over him?
There's nothing about him that says, 'I'm special and deserve to keep my testicles'. From the few pictures you've shown of him, I see nothing spectacular or refined. He looks rather common and coarse to me.
Now, if you show him and he consistently wins in rated, recognized performance classes, then you might
be justified in keeping him a stallion. Otherwise, he'll make a heck of a nice gelding.
