anybody ever heard of this stallion?
His name is Unbridled Mate. TB.
Unbridled Mate Thoroughbred
Never heard of him, but he has got a cute face.
Are you thinking of breeding to him, or what
No, but his photo shows terrible conformation for a riding/sport horse. His rear is nearly a hand taller than his front end! It looks like two different horses photoshoped together... I really hope that's his 2-yr old photo and he leveled out some... But even if that is the case, he wouldn't likely level all the way out. He'd likely stay pretty downhill. That might be fine for race horses, but there's no way I'd consider breeding to him for a riding horse.
Found his web site. He'll be 9yrs old this year and his stud fee is $3,500.
About the Stallion
It doesn't say when those photos were taken.
For racehorses, a stud fee of 3,500 is dirt cheap. Kind of like a 300$ Pleasure horse fee. ;)
He is quite downhill, I noticed that the first time I looked at him.
I thought maybe he may be for sale though or breeding for the track.
Even though he's remarkably downhill, I still really like him o.<
Well sure, I like him too, but only as a gelding, lol. He's much to much downhill to breed for a riding horse. Any of his babies that inherit that build won't have much of a career post-racing...
Which is unfortunate, because the rest of his conformation is quite nice. I like his shoulder and hip angle, short back, short cannons, and high set neck. His slight ewe neck in the side picture troubles me, but that could be just the way he's standing. But his degree of "downhillness" is just too great to make him a breeding prospect for riding horses IMO. If he was an inch or so downhill, I might get over it. But he looks more like 3-4" lower in front, at LEAST 2.5" lower.
Nope, cant say I have. Sorry. :?
I've heard of him. Successful runner, even though he's got cruddy conformation. He's got some impressive bloodlines, though. He'd be gorgeous if he wasn't so downhill. It looks like the jockey would slide right over his neck. XD
i dont understand why this horse was left a stallion. Given his great bloodlines...thats not a good enough reason in my eyes anyways. I know NOTHING about racing but ya im confused on this one...
