There is no such thing as 16.14hh.

Not sure what 16.14hh is meant to be so can't really give you an estimate. It also depends on the height of his sire and dam, what sizes progeny they have thrown and so on. Being TB he won't grow a heap more after 3 to 4.

Any reason for his being kept as a stallion?

sorry here we don't meausre the horses in hands so I had to use the computer translateor to be ablo to have an idea of his heigh so I did it again and it is 16.1 hh im really sorry. His mother is 16.2 and his father is 16.8 acording to his breeder.
About him being a stallion well he doesent give any sort of trouble being one he is a nice going guy so we just don't see the point of making hima gleding, but we are open minded about the idea. His ex owner also used him with 1 mare so when I bout him he was a stallion.

16.8 meaning 16.3? Hands only go up to .3 and you can get in between heights like 16.3 3/4 but not up to 16.4.
If there's no reason for him to be a stallion, please geld him. There is nothing special about his conformation, but he'd make a very lovely gelding.

He's very handsome.
Just wondering, can this picture be right? His, uh, 'parts' seem disproportionate

lol natisha you did make me laught that's the day he arrived home 6 months ago (almost) he got bit by a spayder down there the day before and got swallen, it was quite a expiriance to take care of that injury lol

Its a lot easier to me if I give you the sizes in meter since in mexico we don't use hands at all and my computer seems to be a mess about it and certainly I do suck at math lol.
He is 1.64 meter
Mother 1.67 m
Father 1.69 m

I don't plan in breeding him or anything he comes from a important TB breeding center in toluca mexico but I just don't care about breeding at all, we are waiting on me actually to get to know him a little beter before gleding him or not since I been riding him for just 4 months, im letting my trainer make that desition and he says that right now we should just put it on hold is just not his priority right now.

I just wonder what you guys like and dislike on him maybe ideas on what should I do better and work on maybe on condition or what to just give up on cos its just the way it is lol.

I don't know exactly what they look for in TB's but he seems to be put together quite nicely. He's standing funny in the picture on the cobble stone but he appears to have nice feet, not flat like so many TB have.
He has a kind eye too. I like him.
He sure matured in a year.
Another question, if you don't mind? What is the dog in the picture looking at with such interest?
