I think he's a cutie. Right now there are a few things that I think make him not stud quality but it's very difficult to tell at this age. I really like his overall look though. Sure seems to be happy and healthy. Good luck!

Better look with the increase pic size. He looks pretty unbalance & hip high right now.His front pastern look longer & weak/lax. Back legs look ok. He doesn't have the substance/muscling I thought, viewing the little pics.Upright shoulder.Pretty head & length of neck, but not liking how it ties into chest.His neck & muscling will improve with conditioning.Still think he is cute but not real tough halter competitor for breed level showing {despite his halter breeding}.Not stallion material but pretty darn cute gelding

Thankyou. He's not going to be gelded- fyi to all. Yes, the nasty comments will fly now which is fine. He's still not being gelded.

I have to agree that at this point in time, he doesn't seem to be stud quality. I'd like to see better conformation on a breeding stallion as other will want good conformation to be passed to their foals. I agree with the critiques thus far.

He may improve a lot, but he still isn't stud quality.

He is very cute, though! I love his color and his chrome.

Sure . He's very well bred and so far very reasonable and easy to work with. I've not had him long enough to fit him for the show ring, so we are going to show next year and see how he does.

You are all untitled to your opinion, just know that any comment to his "stud quality" falls on deaf ears. Critique his conformation all you wish, please. It helps me decide how to condition him. So if we could please focus on that, this thread would be much more helpful to me.

Commenting to the horse's stud quality is part of a constructive critique. It is a critique based on overall conformation quality.
