If you want a stud prospect I suggest finding a much, much nicer stud. This guy is cute, but doesn't really look like an arab to me. He's not typey, he has a thick throatlatch, and his neck ties in very low making it look very thick. I'm also not too fond of his hind end, though I can't pinpoint what it is. He would be a much cuter gelding.

I actually had to read until I saw the SCID clear part before I knew he was an arab. Keep looking if you want a foal that's going to be a stud prospect.

Agree with all above , I dont think this stud will throw nice foals with your mare. You may get lucky but there is a huge chance the foal will have a short fat neck - as you mare has a short slightly upside down neck and the stud is very thick the whole way through his neck.

I do like him though.... He would make beautiful solid Anglo Arabians ( T-bred X Arabian) !

I think that is why they mention on his page " We believe he would be an excellent cross onto a sport pony type mare or smaller warmblood mare for dressage or combined driving offspring"

For you mare I would try to find a stud with an exceptional & long swan like neck, Along with good confirmation , you should get a winner.

Both mare and stallion have to complement each other for the best chance of getting a well conformed foal.

May we all see horses through the eyes of children

I agree with the others. I looked at the photos and I was like what breed is this horse??? I finally saw it was an arab. Imo, that stud would make a better gelding. Find something better especially since you want a high quality arab.

I've spent most my life riding horses...the rest i've just wasted.
