    May I ask why you won't geld him? Honestly, as the others have stated and is the consensus, he is not stallion quality. And I used to barrel race, he will not hold up. Please do the right thing and geld him, then do riding that will keep him more comfortable in the long run, ie trail rides

    ETA: You say he has been cutting since he was three? He's only 9. Come back after another ten years and let me know how his legs hold up. My mare is cowhocked, and wasn't started on the pattern until she was 7. She ran once a month, five months out of the year, until she was 17, and the first few years were easy runs until we had our pattern down. She's now 20, and so stiff and arthritic(on top of an injury to her knee which makes it worse), I am contemplating having her PTS.
    As I said before. He isnt being gelded.

    If he works fine as a stallion and isnt problematic, why spend an extra $300 or $400 to geld him because of his age when he's fine as he is? Besides, in his next foal if my mare can counter whatever problems people are givig me, than so be it. Ill breed him.

    Sorry, but your horse is a conformational trainwreck. I was your age once and wanted to keep my appaloosa colt a stud. Until I woke up and smelled the coffee, realized that he was a trainwreck and called the vet the next day. You are doing that stallion NO favors by keeping his nads. All he has is a pretty color. People like ou are the reason so many horses are in the kill pen, rescues are over run, and the reason I can't GIVE away a well bred, well broke horse. Your horse has NOTHING to offer to the gene pool.

    That is certainly a different story than:

    I'm not trying to be witchy or stir the pot, I'm honestly trying to understand your logic.

    Why, when SO many people who know what they're talking about have told you that this horse is not breeding quality and they wouldn't touch him with a ten-foot pole, are you keeping him a stud? Especially with SO many mediocre studs already out there? There is absolutely nothing special about this horse. Yes, I understand you love him and think he's all that and a bag of chips, but the reality is that he is going to pass on all his undesirable traits to his offspring and the world will end up with even more poorly-conformed horses who can't stand up to their jobs and have to be retired early or PTS.

    I just truly do not understand why you think keeping him a stud is a great idea.

    The thread is APHA Stallion Conformation.

    We told you he would make a lovely gelding. He is not stallion or breeding material.

    So you acknowledge he has bad conformation but you are breeding him anyway because people will pay. It's very sad. Considering that makes the market for the paint horses I breed go down because it is so swamped with cheap foals on the ground.

    I can't add any to the comments already made...I'm just sorry to read he will be a breeding animal.
