    I think he will make you a nice horse! He is cute as a button and I bet once he trusts you that he will be more amiable to picking up those feet!! Good luck!!

    Foal
    As for finding another one we have some run through the sales every month like him some not as nice but some that are just as nice or nicer however the papered ones usually go for around 1200.

    I was very lucky to get him I kicked myself and my friend for letting lift my hand for him but now that I have him I would hate myself if I gave him up. He is a dream sweet and smart. I might have to breed him a couple times before I geld him just because he is so laid back and handsome.

    I don't think that's a very fair assumption. Heck, I've seen papered stud colts run through auction here for $60 with all their papers ready to transfer. And breeders here often sell off their unwanted yearlings and older mares for meat. =(

    He's a lovely little guy. His temperament sounds wonderful, and you are very kind for saving him.

    Yes, so there's no need to breed less than papered, unproven horses if even the papered stud colts can't get a home.

    which is why so far the first choice is to just geld him and I wouldnt breed to anyone who didnt have a purpose for the foal. My gelding is Foundation bred but he would go for less then that because his foot is turned in so no one bothered to get him papered. I kinda want to breed him to a competition mare for a good all around work horse because I don't believe papers are everything but the build, behavior, and work-ability should come first. I have seen more cross bred ranch horses kick but in local rodeos then I have most papered horses.

    The economy here isnt so bad all of the papered horses were going for at least 500 most of the nicer older ones were going at 1200.

    Papers definitely aren't everything. They are certainly nice to trace back history, but when it comes down to it, breeding for good quality body and mind is most important. Especially if you aren't a. Breeding to sale or promote a breed, b. Not going to compete.
