My intention was to give my opinion and I wasn't nasty, just honest. Stud or not he has many conformation problems as myself and others have stated. My experience has been that she may have kept him for breeding if she got some positive response, lots of horse lovers do that and it affects the horse industry negatively. Emotions have little place when making decisions regarding horses.

Gidget, the Equine Glossary says.
"Roach Back:
Convex curvature of the spine between the withers and the loins. Opposite of hollow back."

Meaning the back has an upward arch where it shouldn't. Usually a spinal deformity. Looks something like this.

First, he's definitely got the looks, very beautiful! Second, I do see an awful lot of issues with his conformation therefore making him a horrible prospect for breeding and I'd be a bit peeved if the colt really does have some foals on the ground. Third and most importantly, I'd be concerned about the way his bones have grown in his legs due to lack of hoof maintenance. If he was really bred previously I'd watch out for it taking an effect on his attitude. Definitely a good deal that he's in your hands now, I love when people rescue horses and take in ones that truly do need a new home quickly rather than those that are being back yard bred(and overbred) and just sold because they don't fit into show plans. His bloodlines are pretty good too. Hope he turns out to be a mighty fine and flashy eventer for you :)

Slick, I sent you a PM.

What exactly do you see wrong in his conformation. I couldnt tell much from the wonky photos that really jumped out of me other than him being downhill.

I don't think anyone was trying to be rude, just truthful. This is the third time she has asked the forum to critique this horse, the third time she's listed him as her new stallion and the third time she's gotten the same answers.
