I know these are not the best pictures lol and pic 2 is horrible he's all stretched out but they are the only ones I have so far, will try and get more :)

This colt is out of "Foothills Beau Dunit" by Hollywood Dun It , he has more great horses on his papers like Colonel Freckles, Skip Zan Parr, Blossom Berry, Hollywood Jac 86 and more!
You can't really tell by the pics and his winter fuzzies but he is a Dunskin like his father and grandfather!

He is adorable. His color is lovely and I like him ( Hollywood Dun It FAN ) but he is a baby and you cannot give a fair critique until he is older, so that is all I will say ;)

Sorry but he's by Foothills Beau Dunit, not out of.

I hate to say it...

...I don't like him.

There's something just not right with that hindquarter that I can't put my finger on and yes he is young but those pasterns are too upright and he is WAY downhill (the downhill part he MAY grow out of).

He would make a lovely gelding but to be honest I would personally not be keeping him entire... regardless of how great his bloodlines may be. Just me, just my opinion. I am INCREDIBLY picky when it comes to stallions, there are one or two I dream of breeding to one day and then the rest just don't measure up. So basically, in other words, you so don't have to listen to me, because very very few horses make the "stallion" cut in my head!

^ Agreed. But any of these things can change with age. I'd like to see three year old pictures of the horse. I do agree at this point he certainly isn't "stud" quality.

Overall, he is a nice looking colt...good hip, short back, nice neck and head. His left front fetlock looks swollen, but could be the picture. The one thing I don't care for (just a personal thing) is the very long, upright pasterns. They don't come from the topside - you didn't mention who his dam she halter bred?

I agree with New Image. He's just a youngster. Hopefully he will grow into his tall back end (:
Love his color!

I personally like this colt, he is young thou and you can't really give a good critique. So sorry @ blue eyed pony, I have noticed you constantly say how other peoples horses don't measure up to your standards.. that's fine but you also don't have to go around saying every stallion is not of quality... even one that you can not get a proper critique from...

I love his color and he has an adorable face! Its reeeally hard to judge a baby though. My QH Appendix' conformation has changed so much from the time he was 2 to now, when he's almost 8. But for now, he looks like he has good legs and a nice full hip and don't worry about that butt being high, he's just having a growing spurt. My Appendix would shoot up in the butt and then he'd level out when the whithers caught up then his butt would shoot up again. Now he's a 17hh beast with a chunky butt lol I personally like this colt, but then again, I'm a Hollywood Dun It fan too.

Thank you themadhatter I really like him too, I'm excited to see what he turns out like so I posted a few pics anyways figured I'd be told he's too young but its good to hear sometimes what people think lol, his sire is to die for and I'm sure this boy will be as well, hollywood foals have great attitudes I just love how they are put together ;) but that's just me. This boy will be started in reining when he is old enough for now hell just get loved
