Exclamation Critique my stallion!

Hi! Can you critique my stallion? He's registered, 6 years old, and 10hh. His papers are somewhere in my basement, so I can't give you all the info on him....I think he's a Welsh. Am I right? Please critique his confo and see if you can tell me what breed he is. Thanks:)

I'm hardly any use when it comes to critiquing, but I have to say he's beautiful!!!

Thanks:). We bred him to our miniature last year and the mare miscarried....we weren't going to breed them again but the mare snuck into his stall and....ya lol. Hopefully we'll get a foal thius time:)

Honestly, He has a thick short neck and no balance. IMHO I don't think you shouldbe breeding him for: 1) you don't know what breed he is 2) he doesn't have any where near the conformation to be reproducing 3) the market sucks for decent quality horses now, so if you don't plan on keeping the foals you shouldn't be breeding them. Sorry if this suond harsh but its the truth.

I understand the papers are "buried in the basement", but I would have to think they have been seen at some point (otherwise, how would you know where they were), so how can you not know for certain what breed he is?
That aside, have to agree with Freedom's assessment of the situation.

I'd rather the truth lol, so thanks. My mom is the one who got the papers from Steel Soldier's seller, and she didn't really look at them before losing them. Her friend has a few goats and an alpaca, experience with horses, and wants a pony/mini just to have around. He doesn't care about confo, and we already told him we'd sell him the foal. His horse died a few years ago, and he wants another now.

So you are breeding just to breed? That makes me sick!

If he wants a horse, just to have one then tell him to goto the local auction and take his pick.There's plenty to choose from, because most of them will end up in a can anyways.

A lot of people do not want to go to auctions, and that is sadly how it is. . . So if someone wants a foal from her horses, I cannot see the harm - it is not breeding for profit and for the heck of it if someone or she wanted the foal from the two, and imagine most people here did not get their horses from an auction - though you might have gone through a reputable breeder. . .
I have two rescues, and I've helped re-home and rescue quite a few more. You never know what you're getting at an auction, and the health of the horses and history can make them very unsafe for average people, though as a 14 yr vegetarian and rescuer, I wish anyone with real experience would look there and that people who breed would consider rescue as a way to give back to the animals that give them so much, for beginner horse owners or even average owners, what is found at auctions can be dangerous, unhealthy, and unsound to the point the animal does not live up to expectations and end up right back in the same situation.
That little stallion is a much nicer looking little pony than 95% I've seen go through an auction, and usually, at our auctions, you never seen small ponies and minis because there is a good pet market for them.

I don't know mini conformation (is he a mini?) but he's cute. I just figured he was so thick because he was a stallion. Its good that you found a home for the foal, but you need to be careful with any stallion. There are alot of unwanted foals that way. Which is why I wont board my horse anywere near a stallion.
