cant tell much from pics....don't like his throatlatch or jaw, very thick, and seems he would hve difficulty tucking his chin and keeping it there, nice short back, and a bit posty in the rear. i think, that depending on your budget, you could do MUCH better, and remember in this market, producing an unregistered foal is very limiting to that foal's potential in life. My guess is that this stallion is only a stallion due to his color, and I would keep looking. plus, the dam in both size and temperment (plus breeding and confo) is VERY important, so you would be wise to look at broodmares in your area, and who they are already bred to.

I'm not impressed. Cremello had my head thinking "not likely to be any good" because I've seen ONE cremello I liked. What I saw was worse, to be frank, than what I imagined I would see.

That hindquarter is NOT a jumper's hindquarter. It's small, it's weak. I'm so not a fan of his head.

This is a horse I would not breed to if his owner paid me. And provided the mare. JMO of course. He might be a perfect example of his breed, but there is very little chance that this horse will produce a halfway decent jumper.

He's cross bred, so not likely a good example of (I don't know what).

Great response, thank you!

QH/a breed I can't spell, well he sure isn't a good example of a QH! I don't know anything about the other breed though so I couldn't even take a guess at what's considered desirable.

I am very picky with breeding stock, they DO have to be superior. With the horse market in the state it's in, in so many different parts of the world, I just can't see any point in breeding more low-quality horses when even the best of breedings can produce so-called duds that will then cater to the "trail horse" market. I've been accused of being rude or judgemental before but let me tell you, neither of my horses is perfect and I love both of them for what they are! Breeding stock needs to be WOW and not "just a horse" IMO... and you CAN have all the perfect conformation in the world, and no wow factor!

Ha ha! Nooitgedacht is quite a funny word!

I have never seen a double dilute that I liked, so I just wanted a few opinions to perhaps support my own, so yay!

You got that right! hahah

I've seen one double dilute I liked and he was 11.2hh and a stallion, and consistently produces lovely progeny to a large variety of mares... if he came in a 16hh package, I'd be requesting a breeding (in 2014 at the earliest, when my filly will be coming 4) despite the fact that I'd then have a 50/50 chance of ending up with a double dilute foal... now THAT is really saying something, considering how I always say I will never own a DD!

I like him for some disciplines but show jumping would not be one of them, neither would I pick a QH for that unless they were a superstar appendix. If you are in the dreaming phase, why not look at the warmbloods? Overall they really are the best jumpers.

Nope, pretty sure he's a cremello. A perlino would have darker points, like a buckskin or a bay would. This horse doesn't have darker points. His points (knees, muzzle, ears) are all a relatively uniform color. The only thing that is slightly darker is his mane.

Without proper conformation pictures, we can't help you. Also; I think it would be your best bet to stay with a purebred and breed to a mare of the same breed, or similar breed ( such as a APH to a AQH, TB to an Arab, or a QH to a TB) You will have a more reliable outcome.
