If he turned out to be sound of mind and body, perhaps. I have shown 2 APHA horses before, a colt and a filly, but both were colored and as I understand it, stock APHA has to go in a seperate, harder to find class and can't go as far, which is disappointing. Then again, I don't put much value in some winning halter horses that are too weirdly built to even ride, beefcakes with a pretty face and not much else. I know his sire was a a halter horse that did well enough in shows, but he is also 16 years old and is a safe riding horse these days so he probably has a brain and no glass hooves. Hopefully the dam has nice lines.
Basically in a paint I want brain, diamond hooves, muscle, and (no offense to the English riders with paints) a background of success in western events, beyond halter. Or at least a capable, dependable ranch horse line. I've done a little of everything so I want something that can keep up, mentally and physically, if I go the paint route again. I had more issues out of my filly than my colt!
Wow that was an excessive explanation.
