Stud pictures =)

I just recently took some great pictures of my stud. One of them is from this summer, the others are from just before winter hit. But tell me your thoughts on him, ill give a quick bio on him.

Name: Midnight
Registered QH
Turns 2 in May
Stands almost 15 hh
Solid black besides 2 white socks. =)

We are planning on keeping him a stud and using him to breed, what do you think of him? I mean obviously he has to grow up but i think hes going to produce some pretty nice foals.







(this was about a month after we bought him, combed him, halter trained him, taught him to stand, clip his feet, clean them - mastered it in about a week though)

by my oppinion do you mean critique or just do I think hes cute or not???

If you want me to critique him here it is.

cow hocked, Steep pasturns. these things will not go away with age.

Would not look to breed my mare to him.

I do like his short back,, he isnt butt high right now so he may never be and he has a nice looken head

He isnt cow hocked im pretty sure its the way i took the pictures & even if he was, with constant looking after his feet and having the farrier out to trim them it could correct because he is still pretty young. And if by chance i did decide to breed him to a mare (which i still intend to) not all his foals are going to be cow-hocked, depends on which genes get passed on.

ummm.... I'm not going to argue with you but he is Cow hocked. and so is my mare. The world isnt going to end.

You can fix that with triming his feet.

I know we arent saposed to give critiques in this section but you asked for my oppinion and I gave it. No need to get all defencive.

Oh and btw. Dont leave it up to chance on what will be past on because you never no. Breeding isn't a game. Horses die. What if cute little fluffy man gets infected from a mare and he dies? What about testicular cancer? What about him having to live out the rest of his life alone because he is a stud?

What about all the foals put down every year because it's unwanted? Could you live with your self if you found a foal that your horse sired in a kill pen?

I'm in no way agains breeding. I want to breed my mare some day. But just because you have him doesnt meen you should.

just SOME of the things to think about.. You can breed him all you want I really dont care. I just want you to make sure you know what your getting into.

No no i totally understand where your coming from and i believe i said that it is fixable with constant trimming? No?

I also understand what you mean by the breeding. Obviously im more aware of what my stud would have. Id never do anything to jeopardize my mares or my stud because they mean the world to me, i dont like people who are so careless about it.

Thanks for the tips though, things im well aware of myself but for those who didnt know, now know.

Yeah, he is pretty cow hocked, not gonna lie. My paint gelding is a little cow hocked too.

Do you or have you planned to start showing him? It's a good idea to get some titles under your belt before you try offering him for service. There are already a lot of registered quarter horse stallions available to the public for very low fee's. Gettying some awards will help set him apart from the rest.

Well im sure if i keep at his feet and im sure eventually ill be able to correct it to the point where it wont be noticeable. But thats okay.

No we havent started showing him, i honestly dont have the time, i was thinking about asking one of our 4H groups if they want to for their learning expericence but im worried that he will be to muc for them to handle because he is still a stud.
I also understand what your meaning, i wasnt meaning to breed other peoples mares, i was talking abut mine. I dont breed to over populate obviously but i want my horses to go to good homes. But my stud is a true black, the only one in my area plus some and ive had ppl want to but we are just sticking with ours for now.

Thanks for the ideas tho =)
