Okay, so why exactly do you need more...especially one that is such a spectacularly mediocre horse. Definitely not stud material.
That's why I want him because I would NEVER bring a mare to my house with them. Also I want a riding horse I can trust with my 6 year old niece.
Wow, what the **** are you thinking? First off, a 6 year old has no business riding a stud. Not only is it forbidden by most arenas and shows, but horses are inherently unpredictable...studs even moreso. Even the best behaved stud will need an occasional "reminder" to obey his training. A child wouldn't have the knowledge or ability to give them that reminder, which could cause a huge catastrophe.
Also just for me. If we get him we might geld him. We most certainly will if he's to hot.
Um, gelding a horse doesn't change it's base temperament.
I went to the sellers house and met him. He was very kind and wanted to please me. Whenever I asked something he would do it without hesitation. Even when I rode him. I just wanted to know his bloodlines. I only got a few good answers. This happened last time too. I don't think I will be hearing from you guys for a long long time.

Typical. Post a thread and then get all huffy when you don't get the answers that you want. Go ahead and "take your toys and go home".
Also, regarding the price mentioned in the ad. If it is, in fact, $12 then that horse has absolutely no reason to be a stud and should have been gelded as a weanling, before
he developed any studdy habits.
If it is $12K, then you would be grossly overpaying for a horse that is so....mediocre.
