i am hoping to buy this new colt,
his sires name is wipys good time cash by wimpys little step. what do you think??
i am looking for a reining stallion prospect, his conformation is good so far but i know its hars hard to tell what they will look like all growd up.
but if he does grow up with the right attitude and conformation and reining ability would he make a good stud??

Yes, post a picture! And no, I'm not ready for snow. I'm supposed to drive into Utah to pick up a couple of horses tomorrow.

I'm not a western rider, but there is a QH TB mare on our yard called Wimpy's Last Cara or something like that, will have a look tomorrow, she is lovely though, fab confirmation, lovely nature, and hard working!

He's a nice enough looking colt, but I'm going to tell today's market being sorrel is a tough one. A sorrel colt needs to go the extra mile in the show ring to compete against the flood of other beautiful sorrel prospects. He'd be worth a try for the right price, but take the whole picture into consideration.

Now, I don't have much know-how in keeping a stud colt prospect, but I can tell ya how I look at it from a dog-persons point of view (and keep in mine dogs don't live near as long ).

You keep him a colt...
$ Puchase price.
$$ Money into housing or ideally putting him out for 2 years until broke.
$$$ Money for farrier and deworming until broke.
$$$$ Money in feed until he is broke to ride.
$$$$$ Money and or Time in ground work and such until broke.
$$$$$$ Money vet/ denstist until he is broke plus other stud evaluations.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Money to start him out and get him in the show pen.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Money to compete and get him name out there.

Factor in putting 2 years of blood, sweat, and tears into a colt just to see him hurt/throwing blanks/ have a genetic disorder or defect of some sort/ have him burn out and not make it in the show pen/ not have money to compain him properly.... the list goes on.

Is he THAT nice to sink all that way on? My opinion; No. But it would be nice to see a full pedigree becuase with a weanling thats really what you have best to go off of.

I think he is definately a pretty little colt, but he seems more like a nice horse that I'd like to see in my backyard as a gelding. I don't think he is outstanding enough to spend alot of money on and possibly not getting anywhere. Alot of others made really good points, and I think it would be best to listen. While he is cute, he is the kind of horse if I saw him in a pasture with other horses or on a trail ride, I wouldn't take a second glance. Just another sorrel horse, and I'm sure alot of other people would see that, too.

But I do love them little spots on his blaze! Cute.

I don't see knock knees or turned out. I don't see much of anything, really. He has a spotty blaze and four (supposedly working) legs. Get some confo pictures and an a movement video if you can.
