More like a conformation question then a critique.

This isn't my horse, just one I found for sale. Should he still be that butt high as a yearling?

Personally, he will flaten out a little bit, but not completely. He owuld still be great for breeding,my parents use to have a perlino stud and he didt have great confo but he put out great babies. I would buy him.

Poor thing has a heck of a lot more wrong than just being butt high.

Those front legs give me the shivers.

That's such an awful picture it's difficult to say for certain how butt high he really is along with everything else. I can't believe they couldn't bother to take decent pics of him.. Especially considering the price and his age.

They apparently don't own any grooming supplies, either.

He could do for a cleaning, a mucking, and a gelding.

Agreed. I love how he says "There are alot of Perlinos being used for Stallions but this Colt is bred to be a Stallion"

IMO a stallion shouldn't be kept a stallion because of color and bloodlines but because of stellar conformation; color and bloodlines come second in breeding.

Well duh, Foxhunter!

Don't you know it's all about the purty kolor they throw and not their conformation, temperament, or even suitability for performance under saddle?

Pish, that whole breeding to improve on the parents thing is soooo 20th Century!
