He's got some speed back several generations and he should have some decent cow savvy. I don't really know much about his close lines though. He's a good looking boy, what are your plans for him?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Umm Ive always wanted a stallion not to breed outside mares on but just to compete with. I do have horse experice and know how to handle stallions but Ive never had one myself. I just melt when I see those beautiful stallions that are very multi-talented and well mannered horses that are very stout and musculer. I barrel race a lot but know almost nothing about cattle so I thought it would be fun maybe to learn together. Hes just a thought Im toying with.

Well, he's coming 4 years old. Has he had any training at all?
From his bloodlines I see speed and pleasure mainly. Driftwood was nice and he shows up twice. He has quite a bit of Three Bars, and that line produced runners and also good performance and halter horses. Leo horses were also runners, and My Texas Dandy, Joe Hancock, Peter McCue, they were strong sires of speed.
I see some that had points in cutting on the Driftwood side.
His paternal grandsire, Sonny Sugar doesn't have much of a show record. He has 3 pts in performance, 3 in Halter.
His maternal grandsire, Shugar Cat, has a much better record.
I think this colt would have potential to go just about any way you took him but if you aren't planning on breeding, why don't you want to geld him?

Well, I like having the choice about having either a stud or a mare rather than a gelding. If the colt was to ever be good at what he does then I would like the option to be able to breed him to outside mares and my own. Yes, it would probably be safer and eiser to keep a gelding but in order for me too move up on my horse skills, I would like to own my own vs. working for other people who do have a bunch because I live so far out in the boondocks that it wouldnt be worth it. And thanks for the bio info. I dont think he has any training but I could be wrong.

I would geld him honestly. He's cute and seems to have decent confo from the little I can see in the pic but his bloodlines aren't "breeding quality". There's some good horses in there but nothing outstanding and there's a LOT of Sugar Bars there up close.
With this economy there's really not much happening as far as breeding, people are having a very hard time breeding and selling foals. I see outstanding stallions who are shown with amazing bloodlines being offered for $300 stud fees.
With this guy not even being broke you have no idea what he's going to have talent for and in order to breed him to outside mares he's going to need to show potential or true skill in one area or another.
But if you have worked with stallions and have a proper set up for him then I guess there's no harm in trying.
I just don't see him being stud quality, he'd make a nice gelding, plus you wouldn't have to deal with stallion issues lol
