Miniature Stud Conformation

My Miniature stud Dyno. Right now he is a yearling, and if he keeps a good disposition I am considering to breed him when he is older. Through my eyes he seems to have decent conformation, but conformation is a bit of a weak spot for me, so what do you all think!? Thanks so much!!

I am still learning how to use this site, so to get a picture of him go to this link! http://www.horseforum.com/horses.php?horse=39906

I would geld, there are a lot of mini's on the market and if you don't know his breeding it is probably not worth it. He his cute, and I like his color. His head is rather large and coarse, his legs are short while his body looks really large. How tall is he? Is he a registered miniature horse? You said he is skittish is that improving? I just don't think its a good idea to bred a horse that is showing a skiddish personality without improvement. Is he a cryptorchid? It can be fairly common in the breed (from my limited experience) to have horses with retained testicles.

He is about 10 hands high right now maybe a little less I'm not exactly sure, he is not registered, and he has improved a lot he walks up to me now and follows me, but there are still a few things we are working on just the usual things, plastic bags, loud noises, crazy movements, etc. Last time I checked, one testicle had dropped but I would have to check to see where the other one is at.

Geld geld geld. He's unregistered. That's all the reason you need.

If he's 10hh, he's too tall to be registered and it is not a good idea to breed unregistered miniatures. They're very, very prone to problems and so many minis carry the dwarf gene these days even if they don't look dwarf.

You'll have a much better horse if you just geld him and enjoy him :) He is VERY cute! If you want an actual critique though, you'll need to get down on the ground to take a photo of him straight on. As it is you're looking down at him and its too hard to say anything. You might also want to wait until he sheds.
