your opinion on this stallion? (might buy one of his offsprings)

Hi everybody!

Could you please share your opinion on this stallion please?
I am interested in buying one of his offsprings next year, but if you see he has some major flaws he might pass on to his children, I'd rather know and start earching somewhere else...


The stallion:






Two of his previous offsprings:






Thanks!

Besides sickle hocks, a long coupling, steep shoulder, and a low point of shoulder he is nice (btw all those things are heritable).

What is his pedigree? What is his show record? What has he done?

I would not breed to this boy.

Photos of his offspring are pretty but show nothing other than they are paints and someone painted the first horse's feet black....
smrobs, Kayty, Speed Racer and 2 others like this.

He looks like a nice boy...his back is a little longer than I like, but halter horses tend to be longer bodied. He's got decent muscling in his hind quarters, could use a little more on the shoulder/chest area.
Are you looking to get one of his foals from the mares of the 2 you have shown here?

Too many flaws there, wouldn't touch him with a 40 foot barge pole. You'll find much nicer studs if you keep looking.

Thank you all for your replies!

elana: he is an apha registered stallion,
Dam Sweet E Nuff (pedigree Sweet E Nuff Paint )
Sire: Magic Rascal (pedigree Magic Rascal Paint )

Performances:
OPEN RESERVE CHAMPION 3 YEARS OLD STALLION
AMATEUR RESERVE CHAMPION 3 YEARS OLD STALLION

I am french (sorry if my english is clumsy), live in France, and he is considered one of the best paint horse stallions we have here (and he is bred a lot), so if you tell me he is no breeding stuff, I do not know what to do... :'(

Here is the site of the breeder (SIMARRON FARM Úlevage de paint horse.), he has other stallions, but does not breed them as much as he does Texas Rascal.
Is there at least one of these stallions worth for breeding?

He does have some flaws. He is sickle hocked, but not majorly so. That *can* be an advantage depending on what discipline you compete is and the severity of it. His arent bad at all.

I don't like his neck. It sits very low on his chest, and is short and cresty. He does have a long body, but would look more proportionate if he had a better neck.

Hindquarters and hip are large.

I do like the fact that he has substantial bone and hoof. As do his foals.

By the way, I think the bay AQHA Smartchic Genuinedoc would be worth looking at. He looks far better then the paint stallion. Not as colorful, but better conformed. Still downhill and a bit of a thick neck, but overall looks like a nice, athletic boy.

I wouldn't breed to this boy either. Steep shoulder, long back, that's enough to make me keep looking. There are much nicer studs out there (conformation wise) that have color too, if that's what you're after.
