Critique this colt please!

This is a mutual friend of mine's 2 yr old grulla QH stud colt. She wants to keep him a stallion and offer him for breeding. I forgot his exact parentage, sorry.

Please critique him, BE HONEST you won't hurt my feelings because personally I feel he's not stallion quality, but that is MHO. I just want to know what other horse people think, thanks!!

I am not an expert by any means.........but I think he should be a gelding. He's still young but those loooooong pasterns scare me a lot! And he looks to have a very short ,thin neck that looks totally out of proportion with the rest of his body. He has a decent hip I think and a cute, sweet looking face and maybe he's going through a gangling period...........but his lower legs are not looking good to me.

Short neck, a bit downhill, looooong pasterns and could be a little cow hocked are the main things I see. However he is only young so as already said he could be going through a stage. I would say geld him though. I can't see his neck all of a sudden becoming proportionate to his body :)

He doesn't look like stud quality to me. Something about his neck I don't like much. However it's cute horse and would be eye-catching gelding in show ring. :)

His neck seems to...thin. He is very flashy though!

I think he should be a gelding....i love his color but his confo isnt great, In my opinion

Gelding def..... the world does not need any more horses! Lol. He's a very pretty horse, but I would not want to pass his pasterns onto other horses.

Not stallion material, but would make a nice gelding. Very flashy color!

Not a great neck attachment point, flat wither, downhill, steep croup, and LONG pasterns!!!

Yes, he is flashy.. and a great color, and he will make a good gelding, but he is NOT stallion quality, sorry. (Problem is, because he's such a flashy color he will attract attention.. if he were sorrel he wouldn't. A good color doesn't make a good horse.)

Geld him.
There's nothing that "pops" out at me, besides his color. He doesn't have great conformation, but he'd definitely be an awesome gelding.
