Like to hear some critiques on Hotrod :)

Hotrod is a registered American Paint stallion.
Reg. Name - King Jesses Tardy Too
He is 1 1/2 years old.
14.2hh tall.
I'll post pictures of when I first got him.
Then post some of now.

Here are the pictures :)
Thet aren't the best to critique, but try the best you can from what you can see :)

These are when I first got him..







Hotrod now

I'll be perfectly honest, while I think he will be a fairly nice looking horse, I do not think he is nice enough to stay a stallion...

He is cowhocked,thick throatlatch, a bit sickle hocked, slight in bone, especially below the knee, has a shallow heartgirth, steep shoulder... These are qualities that WILL pass on, and potentially be worse in his offspring than they are on him.

You asked, there it is...

I agree. If I were you, I'd definitely geld him.

Well, gelding him is out if the question.
I do not plan on breeding him unless his previous owner wishes to breed his mare to him.
I would like him to be critiqued over anything, but him being a stallion.
Please :)

Some of these may be the way he is standing.
Plus he is not even 2 years old yet.
Like I mentioned before these aren't very good pictures.
I will get better ones.

Thanks for the honesty though.
It is really appreciated :)

Anyone else?

Just out of curiosity, if you don't plan on breeding him, why keep him a stallion? Kind of pointless, I think. O_O

The previous owner wants to breed to him.
His stallion (Hotrod's sire) passed away sadly..
Hotrod is the only stud colt he got out of him.
Hotrod is a Jesse James, Tardy Too, Three Bar & King blood horse.
Just a deal I made with the previous owner.

I also like the way stallions ride, their attitude, ect..
I know geldings can have the same qualities mind you.
It is just my opinion.
So, to me it is simply not pointless

Nope I already covered what I saw, for now...

Just out of curiosity, do you have experience handling a stallion? Because you boy may be calm now, and he may be out of the absolute calmest stud, but that means absolutely nothing as far as how he will turn out once his hormones kick in.

I have a colt right now, waiting to be gelded, and some days he is Jekyll and Hyde; literally, he will go from calm to rearing and throwing hissy fits...and this is a horse who is too lazy to rear; honestly. I know how to handle a stallion, fortunately, so I know how to deal with him when he goes through these goofy naughty moments, but do you have that same experience? Just asking, because imo stallions ARE NOT for amatueur handlers, period, especially if it's your first horse!

Yes, I have handled, backed, and trained my share of studs.
I am a very experienced horse woman.
If I questioned myself the slightest bit if I would have difficulty handling him, or not I would have never purchased him.

He does have those hissy fits at times, yes.
I have him under control, and I know how to handle him.
I undertand how stallions are.
Also, how they can be.
I understand your concern though.

He is definetly not my first horse.
I would never choose a stallion as a first horse, hehe.

Have the previous owner pay to get his semen collected. He can worry about storing it & using it when he wants to. Then geld your horse.

I think he's cute. And you can do whatever you want with him.this is a forum, we don't have any idea who you are or how experienced you are, so, I think just do what you want with him, if you like the way stallions handle, and you do understand all the rest then do what you want.
I think he's cute and I love his face markings! I soooooooo want to see pics when he is fully grown!
