Stud to critique

What do you think of this stud? He is a great grandson of Old Tom Cat and Crimson War. He is not a 100% color producer. Do you think a $500(registered) $450(grade)is a reasonable stud fee?

He looks like a good horse..seems relatively quiet and alert. I'm not crazy about his looks... what I am meaning to say is that I think he's pretty and I like his face. I don't have and "eye" for critique but he looks long to me. He's not the picture I have in my minds eye of a stud that I would breed. I hope this mess makes sence. lol

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

What are his acomplishments? Points? Has he been shown? What can he pass on to his get?

He really isn't built well overall. What are your plans for the offspring, what has the stud done, what do his bloodlines look like other than what you mentioned, hows his personality?

I would pass, he is butt high, long backed and it looks like he might have a slight ewe neck, or maybe its just undermuscling?
Anyway, you can find nicer studs out there.

I think its undermuscling. Agree with you on all other counts.

He's a 99 AQHA with no points, although he does have a good mindset. Ive posted a link to his pedigree and added some photos of foals.

I bet he would make an awesome gelding. I am honestly not trying to be snarky or mean here. But with the way the horse market is right now, you can get very well bred, already started horses very cheap. And now people are really starting to become aware that. It would really be worth it to him to work him up, and show him. See what he can pass onto his foals, esp. if you insist on breeding him.

Nice stallions make really nice geldings
