    He's definitely pretty (I'm a sucker for a nice bay), but more gelding-pretty, not stud-pretty. :)

    Yes he is pretty, and he has a great tail. Why have the stress and added work of an "okay" stallion that might get bred twice a year when you can have an amazing gelding. These days, with the economy the way it is, the stud has to have it all...conformation, pedigree, show record, personality and a proven producer.

    My favorite saying I think of when looking at colts..........."How do you ruin a great gelding? Keep him a stud."

    If you hit "go advanced" itll bring you to a bigger screen. Towards the bottom there is a button that says "manage attachments" and you can upload pictures from your computer files.

    Claporte there are plenty of horses that are linebred to their half siblings sires grandsires and so on. I have seen full siblings bred to each other. Now that I draw the line at.
    To the OP I do not think that there is a market for a breeding stock APHA stallion. I do not think that a stallion has to have a show record. It helps promote them but the true test will be how well he sires good horses. That will take years to prove it would be much easier getting good mares with a coloured APHA stallion. Shalom

    None of the breeders I know would breed to a breeding stock stallion. Mares yes, studs no.

    Stud would have to be of top quality,but I would consider a SPB stud to cross on my colored paint mares the same as a AQHA stud.

    OP, I sure wish you hadn't started this thread with such unflattering photos of your horse. It would have been prudent to have waited until you had the time to thoroughly groom and present him well.

    It is not too late. Clean him up, pose him well, and then remind people of his age. Unfortunately, until he is mature, it will be difficult to know how he will look. As it stands now, I would agree he doesn't appear a likely stallion prospect.

    As it was mentioned earlier there are a lot of half siblings bred together and these horses are out there. IMO whomever is breeding these horses needs cut.
    You can over line breed to the point of inbreeding such as half siblings, and I would Never want a horse bred this way.
