Mmmm :/ I'm not a huge fan of him. Something about his back legs...

could you explain what you don't like? I see nothing wrong with the first foal, I see some things with the bottom one, but I'm still learning about confo.

OP, I like the first foal you posted, nice short back, nice hip, short cannons, not really a confo picture, and he is a baby, but I like him

I find it sad that a "professional breeding facility" such as they want to be seen as can't be bothered to take anything close to decent pictures of their prized stallion(s).
Honestly, they seem to be riding on the "pretty color" wagon with him.

pigeon breast, long back, long pasterns, awful feet, short hip, weird neck tie in, mutton withered.. there are some decent things - wither set is nice, hock is decent, legs (except for pasterns) look straight. This is NOT stud quality! I would not buy any of his foals.

I don't quite understand why he's a stud. He'd make a great gelding... but he doesn't need to be reproducing.
