    Im not sure, I think she was chestnut or dappled. But again, I. Just saw foal pictures and he was was with a chestnut and dappled horses. So they could be anyone.

    Ok, I wasnt planning on doing this and I know what a lot of you are going to say... But one of my friends have said that since he is not yet gelded (the owner said she could geld him if I want to) he would make a good stud. See, I've worked with stallions before, but not one that I've chosen for breeding rights. Now if I did choose to, I would be no BYB. Again, it just crossed my mind.

    He is very nice. I would consider him as a stud prospect. But you just never know. He would be a complete ass with a horrible work ethic as a 2 and 3 year. That'd be when I'd cut him.

    But are you going to have the facilities to house him? The money to show him, train him/send him to a trainer if you aren't capable of higher training. Are you going to be able to collect and ship semen? There's a huge long list to go through before the final decision is made to cut a colt or not.

    ^^ everything above is exactly what I would consider.

    However, not going to lie, when I first saw his pics I was like, now /that/ is a potential colt to keep a stud. Of course all depending on temperament and the above stated considerations.

    He's really nice, though.

    He looks a substantive little guy. My one nit pick on comformation is his very weak, almost snipey, jaw and nose. It is almost Arab looking and not in a good way.

    If not being gelded (and I would probably geld because proving a stud and showing/racing is soo bloody expensive) I would keep very close watch that his teeth and jaw are correct as he matures (doesn't become undershot). Any incorrectness he would face the knife.

    Other than that see how he matures. Good bone, Good coupling, nice shoulder, nicely balanced as as yearling for sure.

    Over all as of now I like him. His pedigree is just OK not bad not "Oh my god" great. Keep him intact for now see how he trains up and shows and decide what you are going to do with him. If he does not prove himself out well then geld him. It is always easy to geld.

    Well! From a lot of thinking and planning, I can now officially call him mine!

    Now, im going to need names, as the owner has called him "Chubs" which I really don't like...

    So need some suggestions!

    Haha, I thought about Unicorn, and just calling him Uni for short. But I do really like Pegasus...
