Is he worth it?

My BO is going out to look at this horse. He's a 14 year old stallion and she and I are wondering whether he would be a good stallion or a cute gelding.

How much are they asking?

What has he done?

How is his behavior and training?

Personally, I think he's great looking, though I will almost always tend on the side of "cute gelding" - If your BO has enough breeding experience to be qualified to stand a stud, then she won't be needing to ask whether she should keep him a stud.

I think he'd make a lovely all around gelding. He looks very useful.

I'd only think about keeping him stud if he was registered, had good bloodlines, had a good show record, and if you had the facilities for it. His conformation isnt bad at all but it isnt spectacular either.

He's nice, but would be better as a gelding if someone were to ask me.

IMO he's nowhere near stallion-quality, though he'd be a cute gelding.

I would love this guy as a gelding. As a stallion..not so much. If he's gentle and has been handled ALOT, he could make a decent riding horse. If all he's only been a breeder and never really used... I'd keep looking.

He's common looking but still a decent enough looking horse .Stallion worthy?? Does he has a decent pedigree & have proven offspring? Does BO have facilities to house stallion,experience to handle one,quality mares to be breeding & resources to promote him or the offspring? If answer is no to any of that then definitely NO to keeping him a stallion.
I see him being more usuable & valuable as a gelding .
