When I said Bloodlines don't mean crap if the trainer sucks means exactly that. You go pay $$$$$ for a well bred horse top lines etc etc its not going to mean doodoo if you don't have the talent or the trainer to bring that line along. I seen alot of top bred horses do doodoo in the show world for the simple reason the owners didnt know poop= bad horse
Now I have seen some really nice colts with so so blood lines go on to be top Hunters as well as jumpers.
Im not talking about those million dollar studs ( Them are rare ) But you can get some very nice colts that go on to be good studs that can and do compliment the breed.
You see alot of people on here talk about nice cross bred horses and then you got sport horses at stud ( Big time up here ) Some of those sport horse stallions came from so so bloodlines but are wanted by breeders to improve the sport horse breed.
Yes alot of horses out there But alot of those horses out there are broken down lack of any kind of thought in their breeding ( those who just want a baby or boo boo breedings ) Senior horses etc etc. Closing the slaughter houses caused that issue not just the breeding.
There is a market out there for horses its just a tougher market ordinary horses are a dime a dozen well trained good horses hard to come by. And when found are sold.
Gelding is a good idea but waiting to see just where this little guy can go isnt a bad idea either. No one says GELD NOW! JMHO
