    Foal
    Actually I have a lot of experience training horses and showing. Not at a national level and nor do I have 50000 to buy a cheap reining horse. But just because I can ride doesn't make me an expert at conformation. I was not born into this but my passion started at 8 years old when I did HUS in California. I have mostly trained my horses for dressage, english, western pleasure, com very little reining. I have this guy set up to go to a reining trainer next spring to get started under saddle. However I didn't want to get to involved with reining if he would be more suited to jumping like his brother back east that has been competing nationally. I actually think this guy will be very athletic and has a great mind. This would not be my first stallion. I am fully aware how to handle one even if I am not a expert on conformation. More than likely I will geld him later. I will just keep him as a stallion till he is two. I never mentioned breeding him. He was a bottle baby and just want him to grow a little more before I geld him. I think all studs should prove themselves in the ring before being bred and have excellent conformation and blood lines to be passed to a foal. That is why I was so discouraged by your evaluation and deflated, because a little tiny piece of my dream had been shot down. I have waited a long time to do something like this. Now I don't know.....I will figure it out after he matures com comes back from the trainer. Thank you!!!!!

    Well I hope your husband finds another job and I am glad to hear that you plan on him proving himself in the ring. I guess I assume the only reason someone would want to keep a horse a stallion is if they are planning on breeding them, since they are so much more work to own and maintain.

    Truly, best of luck with him :). Please do update us on him in another year.
