coming two year old prospect

I tried to post a similar thread earlier, but somehow it didnt work at all...
Anywho, this is Pacific Peppy, my long yearling APHA stud colt. His sire is a foundation quarter horse, and his dam is a registered paint with good bloodlines (doc bar, gay bar king, san peppy). Im just wondering what everyone on here thinks of him? I'm hoping to eventually use his as a barrel horse if I don't sell him before then. Pictured last summer, and as a suckling colt. Thanks!

P.S. we had his hernia removed in the fall

I love the coloring
As for confo, the first thing that i see is that he is sickle hocked. Apart from that, i cant judge much until he has matured and leveled out.
He is butt high but that may change once he has done growing.
His neck also looks long and goofy at this stage because he lacks the proper amount of muscle in his neck and hindquarters that again, will only come with age.
His shoulder appears a little upright in the one photo, but then looks better in the second lol.
I think with time he will develope into a nice horse ;)

What does sicklehocked mean? I've never known much about conformation, just what looks good and what doesn't. I love his color to, he's too pretty when he slicks off for the summer :) and his butts stuck up so far in the air it's almost ridiculous lol, but he's starting to grow into it. Hes a big boy already :)

This site gives a good example of what sickle hocked, and quite a few other faults mean, and what they look like

I agree with what lilruffian said....I will add though, as an owner of a coming 2yr old Paint as well, its hard to critique them to a certain extent, they still have quite a bit of growing to do, and I know that my horse has gone though some pretty strange stages thus far

Are you planning on keeping him a stallion?

I was considering getting one foal off him but knowing that he's sickle hocked and after looking intothe conformation an that more, I probably won't. No need for babies like that
