He's a cool color but he's not stallion quality, and there would be absolutely no guarantees of Appaloosa patterning in the foal. Geld.

Ditto what bubba said.

The pictures are kind of hard to see, but I'd still geld. Especially if he has no shows record and hasn't "proven" himself. Very cool color though :)

Get him and have him gelded before he sets hoof on the property. He will add nothing of value to any foal.

ok, well if yall dont mind me asking "why"

He is, quite simply, a conformational trainwreck. He has an extremely weak hind end, weak pasterns, and one of the worst ewe necks I've seen recently. His shoulder is giant compared to the rest of him, and his neck is really really thick. He should be gelded yesteryear.
Based on that one photo, the mare's hind legs really worry me.

They're not the best pictures, but I don't like the way he is put together enough to want to pass it on. I don't like the way his neck ties in at all, but some of that could be the way he's standing.
The mare seems to have a weak hind end, (which doesn't look like the stud would help with) and I don't like her shoulder.

Both are cute though and I wouldn't turn them away as non-breeding riding horses.
