IF it's bred right it is. I've seen alot of very nice Poco horses and i've seen alot of not so great ones where people got overzealous and misbred them. Like I said before, have him checked for HERDA and if he carries it have him gelded asap and start treatment.

I think any over-breeding will result in problems, no matter what the breed or lineage. I would get him tested (just as I would get Impressive or any other breeding problem tested), just to be on the safe side, but the disease is rare and not found often...

Best of luck with the new one, adn I can't wait to see pics!

I agree about the over-breeding. 62% of all Poco Bueno offsping are carriers of the HERDA gene.

Didn't mean to offend anyone, I was just going off of my research (see this link published by the NFQHA, who has researched the problem thoroughly http://www.nfqhj.com/herda.html )

Still, if you plan on keeping him a stud (or if you decide to geld, and it's in your budget), I would have him tested... Either way, by the time he is 2 or 3, you will definitely know...

Hope this helps...

Here's a list of HERDA carriers

And horses that do not have it

I would look to find his sire and dam on either of the list. Though a test will be a sure thing.
