Totally understandable!! We all want to think our horses are perfect. I thought the same thing when I got my boy. I was so excited because he's got extremely major bloodlines that are top of the line. So I posted pictures and thought it would be fun to have him as a stud. I didn't know a lot about draft conformation and was told he would make a beautiful gelding but that he wasn't stallion material.
I was pretty off put by that. But then they pointed out the issues and I realized yeah, that was true. And they told me that breeding was a big deal and shouldn't be done lightly (and never to make money unless you are a huge farm).
So I made the appointment to nip off his dangly bits. And lo and behold the lady I was buying him from (I was making payments) bred him to her mare!!!! I was so angry. Luckily he threw such a lovely beautiful filly that was just amazing. But it might not have turned out so nice because of his conformation issues.
You've got a nice a looking horse. Just remember, they see saw back and forth like crazy until they get older and there's going to be some times where you will look at him and go DANG! What has happened to you!! I know I did!
