Wouldn't touch him with a 50 ft pole. I think he's horrible. Not good Appy and definitely didn't get the best from the Arab half. Sorry.

I agree. And why would anyone want to breed to an unridden, unproven prospect?

Conformation-wise, if he had it, it would show even at a young age. And I don't see much here. What would you breed him to? A half-TWH, half-miniature? Then yer colt would be a Spotted Miniature Walkarabian

I bred and raised Araloosas for many years. There are a couple of reasons to produce Araloosas...first, to produce a basic Appy conformation with the modified muscle composition, energy level, and hard hooves and dense bone of an Arab to use in rugged endurace work (which is what I raised), and second, to produce a basic Arab conformation with flashy color, which is really nothing more than aesthetics. As Dreamcatcher said, neither have been achieved in this particular horse.

He might end up being an OK horse once he matures, but why breed him? I can't think of a breeding objective that would prompt me to use him as breeding stock, and it is generally not prudent to breed a first generation mix anyway as they don't normally breed true - although this guy doesn't have anything one would want to breed true to in the first place...
