    Why?

    -His conformation is nothing you would want to pass on.
    -We know nothing of his training, but unless he's got a secret superb show record, what does he contribute to the breed?
    -Is there a market for cross-breds with meh conformation and meh parents in your area?
    -Do you have the facilities, money, and experience for ultrasounding, testing for genetic diseases before they pass it on to future generations, facilities for birthing, facilities for weaning, facilities to keep a stallion separate and content?
    -In my opinion, a stallion should have exceptional breed-standard conformation, an exceptional track record in the way of showing, training, or usefulness (on a ranch, for example), and most of all, a stallion should improve the breed, not detract from it.

    Foal
    Well the mare is really at a weird angle, the photo makes her head look huge compared to the rest of her body, lol. But now that I read yalls comments I don't think he's worth the trip at all

    The stallion could be lacking good training. If he's just been worked without carying any kind of top line he would heve developed a ewe neck, weak(ish) hindquarters and probably would look out of proportion. Like the others say, I would probs pass unless you KNOW he ONLY has it through poor training (which probably isn't likely, being a stud n all... XD)

    Basic conformation doesn't change with condition. He has and always will have a weak hind end.

    If you really like him then buy him and geld him. He's cute and would be a flashy riding horse, though it will take awhile for his "stallion quirks" to work themselves out, unless he's already a very well trained, well behaved guy.

    He's just not stallion quality.

    I agree with what has been said about him previously, so I won't reiterate it. I will say, though, that he wouldn't make a good stallion, he would be quite the flashy gelding.

    JDI already covered the back end.
    A ewe neck is a ewe neck. This boy is shaped that way with some stallion crest making it not look as bad as it could. But the way he is put together had does have a ewe neck conformation. This will not change no matter how much good training he gets.

    He has cute spots, past that he is a wreck.

    Agreed. His long back & unusually thick neck worry me :S he's a pretty colour, but that's as far as his good looks go. Sorry
