This is my 1 year old pinto Arabian/American Show horse.

Scout, it's really hard to judge based on the pictures you posted. Try to set him up so that we have a better view of him from the side standing correctly.

But based on what you have, he is pretty narrow chested and has a rather common head. He could use a little weight as well. I don't see the Arabian in him.

I know from other posts that you wanted to keep him a stallion but, truthfully, there does not seem to anything remarkable or even special enough to breed him.

That's my opinion for what it's worth.

Sorry, but I winced when I saw that first pic. Ack!!! Barbed wire!!! But your yearling looks very lovely and sweet but a little ribby!! Very cute, though!

AHHH! Get the barbed wire out. He needs to gain weight also. Narrow- chested. I dont see arabian either.
Please geld him

The horses don't bother the barbed wire and the barbed wire don't bother the horses... we've never had a problem. :)

And if you have any suggestions about his ribs please let me know... He has 25 acres of green pasture so the guy eats all day, and we feed him 1 feeding of grain each day.

I don't know what else to do I've noticed he is a little ribby, and yes he's on de-wormer

feed him twice a day :wink:

I'm sorry but I highly doubt you can tell if a horse is breed worthy when it's 1 year old. If you think he's not breed worthy you just have a pickel up your hind den.

I dont want to start a debate here, but you CAN know if a horse is worthy to breed when it is a year. What are his bloodlines like. What did his sire and dam accomplish? If it isn't OUTSTANDING don't breed him. I doubt you want to support horse slaughter. =/

other than that i think he is adorable =)

Yes you can and it is done often by professional breeders.

Your horse may be the entire universe to you and he may have nice color but he is common and has faults. You also submitted pictures that do not show him in what could be at his best. What did you really expect?

Lastly there is no reason to be crude with anyone who disagrees with your assessment. You asked for opinions and you got them. If you can't take the criticism then don't ask for your horse to be critiqued.
