Cowboy - that's fine, that's your opinion. I just feel that in the current horse market (in the US and here in Aus) we want to only breed from truly exceptional animals that are proven many times over in temperament, performance, bloodlines AND conformation. I'm not picking on anybody, just saying that in the current market, there are better stallions out there.
Now, I've said my piece, you've said yours, and the OP can take from it what they want.
Cute colt, pretty color, REALLY cute gelding. Sorry Cowboy, I pretty much agree with blue eyed pony on the gelding issue. IMO, you could geld 75% of the QH stallions out there without hurting the gene pool a bit. I am NOT anti QH, I own one, but they are the most overly bred breed there is.
Nor am I, Bellasmom, but I found the same looking through a stallions at stud coffee table book. Probably 90% of the QH/Appy/Paint stallions in there could have - should have - been gelded (too many halter-type posty-legged daiper-bottomed horribly downhill creatures that'll never perform at any decent level). I'll say the same for warmbloods, TBs, and many other breeds. 90% of ALL our breeding stock shouldn't be bred from.
