Critique This Horse Please Arabian/Appaloosa

This is a 2010 Appaloosa Arabian. A breeding to this horse for 2014 is being given away in a contest. And I was just looking for thoughts on his Confo. Thanks!

Why would they be giving away a breeding for a 2yr old? Any current pictures?

I believe he will be 4 by the time the breeding comes around. This is all they have posted and their website is severly unfinished.
I don't have a mare and I'm not looking to breed, but a friend asked me to get some opinions on here for her. Just doing what I'm told.

EDIT: Actually they may have a facebook page, I think that's where they found it. I'll inquire.

I apologize for wasting time. I found what they have up. Thanks for your replies, I do believe I'll tell my friend to quit wasting her time now.

Yeah he kinda looks like he's still a yearling in the pictures. But he does have a really nice shoulder and short back. His legs look nice and straight too. He's cute, but not sure if he's worth breeding to. It would've been nice if they had some more recent pictures where he's not all wooly. Do you know if the owners are planning on showing him, or are the just putting him straight out to stud?

Also depends on the mare and what you're wanting to do with the foal.

He's being entered in his first show in August 2012, in halter I believe it said. And I thought they weren't breeding until 2014 but he is offered for stud right now as an unproven long yearling. And in my mind any one who studs their horse out like this is not worth getting in to business with. Free breeding or not.

EDIT: They also list a bunch of disciplines and say breeding to him if they want that is the way to guy...a horse who is not even 2...

i'm sure he'll be cute when he's all grown up - but stallion material? Imo, no.

Don't get me wrong - I own a stud colt and he's only a stud colt still because I like how he's growing AND he's got decent breeding SO if in say 5-7 years he's proven to be a good guy, maybe MAYBE i'd consider breeding him. But i'd never even pass a second thought on breeding him NOW. Know what I mean?

Nice looking horse but he's not proven and he's only half app and arab I see way more app traits then arab. To bad he's not pure appy not sure id breed to a part blood I will say he's a good looker though.

I know this isn't conformation but his belly looks wormy or potbellied.

But when it comes to conformation, he has a nice neck. Well angled and he has a good flat good sized back. He has good legs, straight and "neat". Overall he would do well in a Halter class :)
