I think he is beautiful!! Stud quality, no. But he sure is a looker!

I bet if he was a solid chestnut he would have been gelded.

I think he could make a nice gelding.... then maybe someone could love him, groom him, ride him, and give him a job at a nice barn. I think he would make a nice riding horse eventually after he gets gelded.

I'm not one to bash other people's places... sometimes constructon takes time... but holy crap their fencing scared me... nothing about the farm impresses me at all, and it actually would make me stay far, far away

That being said; If you want a stallion you keep him responsably in a good enclosure that is safe for him and your mares!

Yea, that area where they are keeping him and the other horses doesn't impress me at all either! Although I think he is cute, I have to agree with the others...he is not stallion quality. Keep in mind though, NOT HIS FAULT! Also for the conformation: The major thing I noticed was how weak his hind end looked. Maybe a little more muscle and he would look 100% better.

I'm with the others, he'd make a lovely gelding for someone wanting a colorful riding horse.

Definitely not stallion material, and that mishmash of crossbreeding just makes me wonder WHY?!

Like other have said, I think he would make a nice gelding.

Conformationally I can't really find anything that I like about him. I think he is another example of people thinking that because their stud or mare has color they should be bred.

This is exactly what I told my father, weak hindquarters but has pretty head piece, the place made me very skeptical(doesn't look professional). Other things that make me nervous were the fact like was he ever ridden? Cause it don't seem like it. They don't show picture of him under saddle not once. And they don't even list a show record. But thanks for your insight guys I showed your thoughts to my dad and he is coming around.:roll:

Your father sounds like my mother... Gung ho because he is pwetty w/o much regard to whether he is actually a qulity horse and/or breeding material... and the fact that he is pwetty and close, he is sold...

I think he would make a lovely gelding.
