Arrow Future APHA Stud-PICTURES

Ok so here are the pictures of my 2yr old stud, I also posted pictures of his Dad, Mom, and his 2 half Sisters. The picture of him aren't the best, and they are dirty after playing in the water, sorry. The first picture is him, second is his Dad, Third is his Mom, fourth is his half sister, and the last is him and his half sister, he is in the front and she is following, both just turned 2! You can pick him and his sister apart I don't care! He is a good boy and I love them to death! I have had them since they were 3 and 4 months so they are my world!

I'll be honest, I like his sire and dam much more than I like him. Of course, the pics are nearly impossible to get a good idea of what any of the horses actually look like, especially conformation-wise, and whether or not they should be used for breeding. But, there's just nothing about the colt that screams "BREED YOUR MARE TO ME!" right now.

Its really hard to critique these pictures. None of them are at correct angles. Better pictures are a must if you want accurate conformation critiques.
Take pics of the horses you want critiqued with the horse standing on flat, level ground. Balance their stance and take pics of both sides, their rump and back legs (standing safely behind them) and of their front legs and chest. Also, make sure to put the sun behind you so you don't get a glare, and try not to take the pics in a super shady area.

Looks like he will make a nice performance horse Pics are not ones that you can critique conformation. Just wondering why he is still a stud & why if he is,still in a enclosure with mare???

Why are him and his half sister in he same pasture? You realize he can breed her, right?

I see nothing about him that I like that I would want to breed to. I don't like the look of his dam at all.

Also, these pictures won't get you the answers you want. You need SQUARE shots of him. Front, both sides, and hind end. Half of his hind quarters and half of his side isn't helping.

Plus, there's no show record. If your going to stand a stallion, you need to start showing and promoting them as weanlings.

When people think of APHA, they think of a colored horse. I don't know anyone that would bred to a breeding stock stallion.

His pedigree is sorely lacking in any big names. A few big names, 6 generations back just doesn't cut it.

I say cut him and save yourself the hassle of ruining a good gelding by leaving him a stud.

Not just any mare, his half sister!

His sister is spayed :) sorry forgot to mention that but I will take correct pictures of him today! Thank you for the advice! And I do agree, I was looking at his pictures and he doesn't have anything spectacular about him, at least not for a breeding stalllion, but I do think he is pretty :).
