Gorgeous arabian/andalusian stallion (PIC HEAVY)

So a stallion came visiting our farm today, and I think I went to photography heaven xD check this guy out! He's an andalusian/arabian cross. 16.2hh.























So what do you guys think? =P we may be breeding him to our arabian mare Xcia next year ^^
(pardon her facial expression, she's quite the diva and is in no way photogenic xD)

Not supposed to provide critiques in the photo section.

When you do want a critique of their compatibility you will need conformation type shots of your mare.

I don't like his looks at all, and I'm a big fan of well bred Andalusians and Arabians. He just looks whonky.

Alwaysbehind- we don't want critique at the moment ^^ already have quite a few people helping us decide. We have two other stallions that we're looking at- one being a purebred arabian that we'll most likely choose instead just because his conformation is a tad better and he has a good show record- while this guy is only four years old and was just saddle trained a few months ago.

Speed Racer- really? Well, everyone is allowed his own oppinion I guess =P I do admit that his head and body don't go together pefectly...he's a very bulky looking animal. However, he's got an amazing temperment even around the mares and a personality to boot. I have to admit that I love his color the most though xP a bit if a biased oppinion. Haha

OK, you asked 'what do you think' so I thought that meant you wanted a critique.

I agree with SR. I would not put this boy on any list other than a 'not worthy to be a stallion' list.

I won't say he's not worthy of anything because I don't feel I have the right to say that, but I agree with the others. I do not like the way he's put together. The huge adni neck put onto a compact Arab body is odd looking and he holds it up like a giraffe.

AlwaysBehind- Sorry to confuse you! I meant it as 'so, do you like him or not?' evidently I'm the only one that does like him though xD

JamieLeighx- haha, a chicken? XD I guess I can see that. Big body, little head. Maybe we should just saw him in half.

This is the other stud that the man has. We're not sure we like him because he's rather bulky for an arabian though, so we'll probably go with the horse I mentioned in the above post ^^

Endiku, I just don't like him. If you do, fine and dandy. You asked what we thought of him, and I'm just being honest.

There are some Andie/Arab crosses that are really nice. Unfortunately, I don't consider him one of them. Nothing about him gives me reason to think he should be passing on his genetics.

He'll eventually grey out completely, so that color you think is so gorgeous isn't going to stick around either.

Your mare might be able to tone down some of his flaws, but I can't tell much from her conformation based on the one picture.

I understand, and am in no way trying to tell you to change your mind. I also know that his coloring is subject to change, but hey- he's not my horse, I don't really care x] I'm just pointing out that one of the reasons he caught my eye was that he's got nice coloring. His mane and tail are very nice, too IMO.

And the mare isn't mine. I don't own any horses- so really its not my job to decide who she's bred to. I am staying 'in the loop' at our barn though, and watching to see what they do so that I can learn for future decisions that are mine =]
