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. Don't 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 don't care. I just want you to make sure you know what your getting into.
