    Foal
    Well im not looking for a reiner, and if I breed her to a stallion, even if she let me, theres no guarantee what the outcome would be. Atleast this way I already know what my money will be buying me.

    I do agree with nrhareiner about the training being the bigger investment, but I am very glad that someone is actually buying a really nice prospect and using your thinking.. Usually it's Ni just want a cute baby!" And hope you get something nice.

    Foal
    Well to be honest, if I just wanted something cute I could find a foal that's "adorable" for like 300 bucks. But im looking for a show prospect, so im not looking for cute im looking for elegance and class in a horse. 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.

    Well from what I've seen in my searching for a prospect, and what I see sell, alot of people prefer a horse that has the potential to be an all-arounder. A lot of people I know show in more than just 1 thing, take the colts sire for example, he shows competitively in both english and western. Also the dams aout 15.2 I believe she told me, and his half sister is about 15.1 at 14 months I think. Id have to double check my emails to be 100% sure.

    I think for that price range that is about what you are going to find. Over all he is not bad. He should do well in several areas. However there are a lot of horses out there who are bred for a certain thing compet at the highest level in that and still make nice all around horses. It just comes down to training a lot of the time for those horses to be able to do other things.
