Me too! I need a reason to NOT lol. He's about 3 hours away from me. If I could afford another horse he'd be in my barn right now..

Yeah I can't help you there. If I lived close i'd be driving to buy him. Only thing I can tell you would stop me is him being intact, just because I don't have the means/desire to handle own a stallion, otherwise he looks like a nice nice boy.

He is just your common looking brown & white tobiano horse.He is just average in looks & conformation,like to see more muscling & hip on him. Definitively does not scream stallion material.To me he is just another Homozygous stud that got to keep his jewels,cause someone figured he was breeding material cause of him being homozygous. I've seen worse studs but think he would look better as a nice riding gelding. Noticed they never mention his pedigree,as probably nothing notable in it or they would have mentioned something as positive selling or breeding point

True ;) I would have gotten all that checked out before I made that choice. He could possibly still be gelded right?

So why are they saying he is a reining stud? Is he proven? At 14 most reiners are done, and I am guessing they are saying that to get attention. My bet is he is ok at lots of things, excels at nothing, but passing on color, which many can do. Good price, if you are looking for a stud to throw color, and not sure of any talent to go with it. It he truly had talent and was proven, IMO, he would not be $2500.
