Possible Buy for Western Competition

I am looking to purchase this Quarter horse and train him in western performance. What do you all think of his comformation? The foal in the last picture was his from this year. His sire's foals had 751 AQHA points, 1387 PHBA Halter points & 499 PHBA Performance points. His maternal grandsire produced a AQHA Select Res World Champion, a Two Time PHBA Res World Champion and his foals have PHBA Halter and Performance points and AQHA Halter and Performance Points. Looking forward to feedback. Thanks

Sire: Skip Extraordinar
Dam: Skip to Pride
Grandsire/dam:Classical Skipper/My Cameo Rose
Maternal Grandsire/dam:Trevallion/Classical Lady Skip
Great Grandsire/dam1:Something Classic/Skip N Teeka
Great Grandsire/dam2:Super Half Time/Castana Barette
Maternal Great Grandsire/dam 1:Im Kiddin/Ima Fantastic Chick
Maternal Great Grandsire/dam 2:Classical Skipper/Lady O Skip

Welcome to the forum!

He's a gorgeous boy, but definitely has that halter influence in his build, which leads me to believe he might be hindered in the performance aspect. Do you have any videos of him moving?

Thanks!! He is gorgeous :) No video. I'll try and request one. Maybe going to pick him up this weekend. Once he has proven himself we wanted to use him for our breeding stallion. I know he will produce beautiful babies that can perform too.

Truthfully, he does show some halter influence (he is just a bit light boned, especially on the front end and his feet are a bit smaller than ideal), but I see more of a classic style bulldog type QH. He's got good angle in his hocks and nicely angled front pasterns whereas halter horses don't. I would definitely want to make sure that he wasn't as downhill as that one picture makes him look, though.

He's a nice looking boy but I would dang sure get him trained up and excelling at some discipline before you ever consider breeding him. Also, just a suggestion, but I would be exceptionally selective of the mares I bred him to. There will be a lot of folks seeking you out to breed their fugly nobreedbutshe'ssweet mares in hopes of a colored foal. You're already going to have enough trouble with people calling you a krazy kolor breeder for getting a....what is he, perlino or cremello?

Oh, and just looking through his bloodlines, before you even consider making the purchase, have him tested for HYPP by a vet you trust. If he's anything but N/N, walk away now. Trevalion was N/H and neither him nor Skip to Pride have it listed on allbreedpedigree.

He is gorgeous, may be sitting in my pasture if you don't pick him up

I love him! But would never purchase a horse without testing for hypp if the bloodlines told me they could be a carrier. If he was n/h, id walk away. Id be crying, but id still be walking away none-the-less...n/n and he'd be in my barn so fast, id snatch him out from underneath you. Lol. (kidding)

He is HYPP n/n. I always check on that one first . He's bred Skipper W lines so classic quarter horse for sure.

LOVE HIM!!! Get him home, trained and shown! Lol.

Don't forget a full ppe!

He does have less bone then id like to see, and he's downhill but that's most qhs. He's thick, looks like he has a shorter neck but could just be the way he's set up and cause of how thick it is.
