I personally knew Rosie O'Lama and I know quite well the man who owned him during the time he won most of his NCHA earnings and his AQHA points. While I don't know the specific $$ amount off the top of my head, this information appears to be correct on Allbreed.

As for the OP's horse, I don't think he is stallion material for many reasons. Most of which have already been stated.

Right off the bat, before even seeing pictures, I will say geld him.
Can you promote and advertise him as a stud? Will you be able to teach him to cover a mare and a dummy? Will you have the money and facilities to keep a breeding stallion? Where will all his foals go? Will you only breed mares that compliment him and are of good quality? Will you show him and earn him some points? To you have the facilities and fencing to keep in a stallion? Have you dealt with stallions before? Have you ever raised a foal?

IMO he is is just not stallion-worthy, and will make a much better gelding in the long run ;)

Welcome Blackburn.

Agree with all of the above.

Your questions should have been, "What do you think of this colt? Do you think he is worth running on, to see if he might be stallion material?"

I know nothing of his pedigree. What did you mean by colour? He certainly has some flashy markings. If you were thinking of producing tobiano or overo, then a lot would depend on the mare wouldn't it.

I'm tending to think by your question, that you probably don't have a good handle on equine colour patterns yet. Yes, he's a cute foal, but most are. Your best bet, is to learn all you can about colour (if that's your bag) and not breed again until you have it all quite firmly, in your mind. Anyone can breed. It takes homework and lots of learning, to know what one is doing, to produce a generation of horses, better than those who went before.

Before one breeds, a breeder should be able to look at a pedigree and know a great deal about many/most of the horses, up-front in that pedigree. Certainly, ask for opinions on quality, although your fellow is pretty young yet and might change quite rapidly as he grows.

I think you said it best
