I'm keeping my colt a stud also..
He is the last Paint with Jesse James on his papers in Ohio that is able to breed. He also has King, Tardy Too, and a few other. He is also very sweet natured, and good barrel racing, cow working, and just all around blood, hehe..
But, I won't breed him unless he tests negative for Lethal White.
I will only breed him maybe once a year, or unless their is already plans made for the foal. So, it isn't just bred to be a yard ornament, or something of that sort. I want Hotrod's foals to have good lives.
That is very neat about your colt. His sire is gorgeous :)
