Yep, the other two times were also not very good pictures to tell anything by, but even at completely different angles, the same main problems seem to be mentioned by multiple posters. Definitely not a good breeding prospect, but assuming that some good farrier work and proper nutrition can straighten him out somewhat, he ought to be a fine riding horse. He does have nice coloring.

Let me just say this. I read your other threads on this horse. You mentioned that you "need to know if he has good enough conformation [to breed]".

If you are not educated well enough to know if a stallion YOU own is breeding quality or not, you REALLY shouldn't own a stallion. I do hope he'd been gelded by now and has not bred to any mares.. I'm sorry to put this so bluntly, but he would not contribute anything to the horse population in any way with his little swimmers.

Secondly, I found it harsh for a few of our members to jump down the neck of a new member for voicing their opinion - and a rather good one at that. That member was not saying anything except that he is not a good stud prospect.
Thank you~ In my world if you don't want someone's opinion be sure NOT to ask for it.

There is always a way to give an honest opinion without cutting someone down. There is also the high road. Gelding him is a good choice, so I commend you on your decision to do so. Also, the pictures aren't that great, so next time try to get him as square as possible and photograph from a profile position or directly in front, or behing him, too. He seems like a sweet horse and I'm sure you'll have fun with him.

I know he isn't breeding quality that's why i came here and yes i was wanting him to be absolutely fantastic for what ever reason, but i have found that he does enjoy mine and my boyfriends company very much and if he has accepted us so readily I have done the same

happy new year every one (late)

Sometimes you just have to take what people say with a grain of salt. Some people don't know how to critique nicely and tend to come off rude. IMO I don't think confo has to be perfect to be good at whatever career you choose for the horse he needs heart and should enjoy it and obviously training. And only you can be the judge of that.
He's cute and I love his coloring. He looks small?!? could be the pics though.
