Hey...a lot of people on this forum will jump down your back fairly quickly when it comes to breeding, especially when it comes to something like LW. Heck, I'm one of those people. Just don't be so defensive about it...these are only our opinions, of course you're going to do what you want regardless. And if that means taking a gamble with the lethal white, then once again that's your perrogative. Remember we're not attacking you, we only have the horse's and his potential offspring's best interests at heart.

IMO, he's a nice horse, but would make an even nicer gelding. If I was in your shoes I'd have to seriously ask myself just what about him would make his offspring worth anything. In a world overrun with unwanted horses, everyone needs to think twice before breeding. Especially from young studs who have yet to accomplish anything and are pretty average, conformation-wise.

I agree, get a new vet.

If you want to breed him then all power to you. I would have prerequisite of having the mares checked first.
I don't understand you wanting a lethal white foal. Their called lethal whites for a reason.

I am not irresponsible.
If was was to breed him, the foals will be worth something.
My friend owns his sire, dam, and siblings.
They are all very good, well mannered horses.
Who have made it pretty far in shows, and barrel races.
I would not be breeding for no reason.
If I even decide to breed.

I will not geld him. He is just fine as a stallion.
I have enough experience to handle him.
The person I bought him from is the only one I will breed too.
It was the deal when I bought him.
He gets breeding rights.
I will not breed to anyone else.
It was only a thought that I didn't expect to act on.

My friend's stud is 25 years old. (Hotrod's sire)
Hotrod is the last stud with the Jesse James bloodline in Ohio.
I made a deal to not cut off that bloodline.
I will only give breeding to Hotrod's previous owner.
He is taking the risk.
Not me.

Hotrod is my Barrel Racing prospect.
That's all I wanted to use him for.
Some trail riding, and shows on the side.
That horse is my best friend, and we have quite the bond.

He is quite sound thank you very much.
I have only been on his back twice.
I was not planning on getting on him until spring.
I know better then that.
His sister was broke the same way.
She is a healthy, and sound 4 year old.

Green Broke
I have always heard of the foals dieing of lethal white. The ONLY way (I have heard) that they live is if they have both blue eyes, and then they are normally deaf...

I'm sorry if I offend you, but I also think it is wrong to breed him. I believe in only breeding the best, and certainly not one that carries a gene that should be wiped out of the genepool, IMO.

You told us you planned to breed widely, saying you would be "carful"? You said;
I've got people wanting to breed to him when he's old enough.

That implies you will be breeding to whatever. PLEASE, rethink allowing that genetic trait to be passed on and on and on. Just like horses with HYPP, they should NOT be bred.

I said people wanted to breed to him.
I did not say I was going to for sure.

Hotrod is one of the best.
He is one of the best bloodlined horses.

Look it up.
There is Lethal White horses.
Sound & healthy.
1 out of 4 Lethal White foals die..

I am not fighting about this anymore.
So, just drop it.

I was always under the impression that lethal white is always fatal so when I read that I did the research. And it is ALWAYS fatal. It's also a very painful way for a foal to die. Now I did read that both parents would have to carry the gene for a baby to be born LWS. I included the below link in case you wanted to look at it.
