This stallion for my mares?

I have a Cremello Quarter horse mare, and a Grey arabian/grade mare. What do you guys think??

He offered the service at 0$$ if you think this sweetens the deal.

Do you have any better shots of him? Preferably squared up confo shots? Pics of your mares would help too, it's difficult to assess the compatibility of a mare/stud without pics of both.

What are you breeding for? That'll help determine if the stud is a good match with your girls.

Beyond that, based on the pics, I'm not really impressed with him with the pics show.

He is actually just a wild (not really THAT wild) stallion that broke into my paddock. I Think he was quite handsome, but DID get my mares out ASAP without getting myself hurt. They hung out with the cow while I was calling someone to get him. I guess he has been causing problems in my neighborhood. They wanted me to keep him contained, but he was trying to mount my mares thru the no-climb fencing... So I drove him off. Quite a morning. I guess they will be setting a trap for him outside my property in case he comes back.

Ok, then I can say this without worrying about offending you.. To me he looks like a scrub stallion and I wouldn't let him anywhere near my mares. He's pretty, but it's in the same way all horses are pretty, especially gray ones.

This is not a good looking horse at all. His back fetlocks looked dropped and weak. His head is big and his neck is unsightly. You couldn't pay me to breed a mare to that horse.

I was so surprised to see the extra horse... Ha ha. Just eating hay with mine. He must have gotten in while I was milking the cow, he pulled down a Section of no-climb. I was even more suprized to see he was a stally. My mares didint want him near them when they were with him, but once I put them on the other side, they were being SUCH flirty hussies!!

I bet he does! Same way our lab is convinced he would compliment the border collie next door.

You don't have to pay... This guy will sneak in and do it for free ;) that means his offspring will be "problem solvers" who think out of the box.
