2 Year Old Gelding Im Considering

This is Rocket, I've been considering buying him or he might be given to me. He's sweet and willing, nice mover, he'll be 3 in April. I really like the colt I'm just not sure if he's worth taking. You can tear him apart, I have to decide to sell or keep my mare and if I sell to either get him or look for something else.

Bad picture but the only picture where he's relaxed and looks normal and not paying attention to what I'm doing


His breeding

I am such a sucker for a pretty bay! Also, looking at his pedigree he is a cousin of Drifter :) He has Easy Jet in his lines (Drifter is a son of Flaming Jet- Easy Jet's half brother) and Jet Deck! Great barrel lines!

He does have nice bloodlines :) I just wish they were closer up, he's been my pick since I first saw him and his half brother (same sire) before I started messing with either of them. His breeding though I just remind myself he's a gelding anyway.

I gelded Drifter when I got him because I had no idea about his pedigree. Tracked down his breeder, got his pedigree and discovered he (Drifter) had been a great barrel racer. Who knew? Oh well. He is gelded now, so he won't be making babies and I really don't know if I would have ever done anything with him as a stallion anyways.

I was thinking more mare vs gelding. If he was a mare I would want a stronger set of papers just for value reasons.
