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 don't think he has any training but I could be wrong.

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?
