No, not a stallion specifically, but I liked him and have alot of experience with stallions. (My friend owns 9 and they are all gentle as kittens, but that is from good breeding, genetics, and handling.)

Have you took a look at his babies ? I would check his offspring if your wanting to keep him a stud.

I was more so leaning towards gelding him, but would definitely do some research on his progeny. If he produces confirmation, temperament, and foals that can excel I would keep him a stallion, though I don't want to put any more foals on the ground in this economy (I have one coming as a keeper foal) so if kept him a stallion he would not be bred for awhile.

I thought if he were a gelding he'd be worth more, but as an unproven stallion though he is broke he isn't worth the asking price. I just wanted an opinion as I didn't agree with this and wanted another opinion. Thankyou! I think I shall keep looking.
LOL
He better be pooping Gold nuggets to be worth $10,000

He looks pretty nice & if he is a quiet solid riding mount about $2500{gelded price} I'd say would be the most.

I would not buy a 10 year old stallion regardless of the price unless I wanted him for breeding. A lot of horses gelded that late stay studdy.

I had decided to pass on him, and though there are horses who do stay studdy after gelding I've noticed (working in a vet clinic for 10 years and having the same clients for many years) those who are very mellow and gentle whether have ever been bred or not when gelded at any age seem to gentle more. Gelding does more than take away their ability to make babies and I saw it this way. Regardless if he were kept a stud or gelded I know he knows his stud days more than his riding days and therefore would take the same cautions as if he were kept a stallion. I do understand your opinion on it though.

Couldn't agree more. I like studs, but if I want a gelding, better get the biscuits outta the oven early.
