    Please critique as a potential stallion

    A lady I know wants to keep this yearling colt as a stud. I have seen way to many stallions out there that needed to never breed. I was wondering what thoughts were out there as to he would make a good stallion or geld him and geld him fast. Thanks for any and all input.

    Photo is at a tough angle and bottom is cut off.

    However, I am seeing nothing that says he needs to stay intact.

    From the picture I would definitely say geld him.

    He isn't the worst ever, but I'd geld him.

    What breed of horse is he?
        01-30-2012, 02:34 PM
    He is a paint. The owner is a first time horse owner who knows nothing about horses and is getting schooled by another person who is by what I have seen is also clueless about breeding for pedigree, conformation and performance.

    Yeesh, her being a first time horse owner is reason enough to geld him.

    It's not a great picture, but from what I see it doesn't look like he's anything special anyway, at least not in the sense that he needs to reproduce. Do you know what his pedigree is?

    He has some good qualities and could have some potential, but he is way too young to make a stallion decision. If she insists on breeding, which doesn't sound very prudent quite yet from your description, she needs to wait and see how he matures and can determine what his abilities are...

    I'd say to get him gelded! He's far from exceptional, and he has a weak loin and back as well as a short neck that ties poorly in to an unremarkable chest. (:
