Im not impressed. I don't like his face. He's downhill. Long back. Short legs. Not proportioned well.

He's got a nice butt though. :-/

I kinda like him. I wish they would show the photo straight on from the side. This angle distorts things. He is downhill, for sure, but to be honest, most every QH stud I see out there is downhill. They are that way for a reason; makes them jackrabbit fast on the acceleration and the turns.

This stud has nice hocks, and a decent shoulder. His neck does not tie in as high as would be perfect, though. His face is not so pretty, but again, it may be the angle of the photograph.

If his accomplishments are admirable that would be something to consider. He looks pretty functional to me.

Would you like me to ask for more pictures?

It depends what your looking for... But personally, I'd want to go with a different stallion.

Yeah, I am not sure what the criticism is - I haven't heard any valid reasons. He is a performance bred horse, and how pretty a face is doesn't affect performance. He is cutter bred, so his legs are proportioned correctly - you normally don't want a long legged 16 hand horse for cutting. He is not really downhill...he has a high croup, but is otherwise well balanced top to bottom and front to rear. The high croup, together with the obvious big rear engine, display the potential for a lot of power off the mark - just what you want in a cutter or reiner. His legs are correct, he has a deep heart girth and chest, and the desired fast twitch muscle composition you want in a performance horse. He is not my kind of horse as I require a good degree of endurance capability, but overall, he is pretty well put together IMO, and is true to his breeding.

Much depends upon what you want from a foal of course, and what mare you are using. He is certainly not going to be and is not going to throw an endurance horse, but if you are looking for performance, he should do well if paired with the right mares...

Foal
I think he looks nice.
Nice lines for cutting/cow work too! What is the mares breeding?

I agree with tinyliny and faceman. He may not be the prettiest stallion, but he looks functional. My only real problem with him is that his front legs look pretty light- the rest I could deal with.
