I was hoping he would be dun, however the color of a horse plays a small part in the entire image of the animal itself, I'd take good conformation, proven show pedigree and good mind over that any day.

Well, if this is true I would really hold off for something that is bred top and bottom for what you want.
The sire is a 16h pleasure horse.
The dam is a lot of cow so I assume she is smaller in size.
Though he is a nice colt the chances of getting a competitive prospect (wont even get into if you want to keep him a stud) for either venue (rail classes or cow work) would be greatly increased if the dam and sire were from the same type of horse. If I was looking for a prospect I would first pick what I want to compete in and the second go out and buy a horse bred (all around) to do that work. But that is JMO.
