Considering buying these horses
Hi. We're considering buying these horses. Please let me know what y'all think about them. Thanks.

Horse 1: Would use this boy for roping, cutting, or barrels. Also, would possibly use him as a breeding stallion.
Horse 2: Would use this boy for barrels and possibly a breeding stallion.
Horse 3: Would use mare for 'just-for-fun' riding. Would use colt for barrels and possibly a breeding stallion.

First Horse: Nice color, he is "okay". What you would get with him is a $600 horse that in all honestly should be gelded. There are plenty better looking out there that are a similar color and have more going for them, honestly. I bet he'd make a stunning gelding! I can't really comment much on the way he is built becuase I'm not an expert like some on here are. So maybe they'll chip in and add their two cents. I think he's a nice looking 2 year old. : ) Since he's bred some mares, by the looks of the mare you listed's ad, you might be dealing with a horse that is going to act real studdy real fast. I'm sorry but the fact that she let this two year old run lose with mares speaks volumes about her breeding operation.

Second horse: Definitely one I'd get cut. I don't see anything appealing about him other than his color. I don't really like him much... but I'm not sure why....

Third horse: Can't judge the baby. He is adorable though. But he's a baby, most of them are. The mare... I don't like her withers, shoulder or hind end, put then she just had a foal in these pictures... wish they would have put better ones of just her up. I do think she has an adorable head. I would be a little concerned that the foal she is carrying is by the two year old above...

If you want something stallion worthy you'll probably want to save and spend more than $600 to get something that is worth advertising, showing and using as a stud. That's my honest opinion.

Can I ask why you are considering stallions?

I agree with joe, can't really make a confo critique pics arn't that hot. BUT if she's selling them that cheap...well you get what you pay for right. Chop off those boy bits on both studs and use them for barrels or whatnot. er not the boy bits...the

As for the mare, the baby is cute, but all foals are bundles of cuteness lol, her wither is way high, needs some serious muscling up on her topline, but she looks healthy enough. Not broodmare material either imo. Oh snap! I just saw her age...she's 21 isn't that a bit old for breeding. I thought they stopped at 17? Please correct me if i'm wrong. Oooh Christian Louboutin shoes 70% off!! *must buy them*

Thanks for the replies. AlexS, I'm tired of mares. Males are better, in my opinion.

I can understand that, but maybe a gelding would suit your needs better than stallions?

Honestly, unless you have the absolute best of the best and are raking in top dollar stud fees, stallions will not even come close to paying for themselves. A mare owner literally has hundreds of studs to choose from these days, and unless yours are exceptional in both conformation and proven ability, it isn't worth the extra work to try to stand them. I would geld all of them as well, none are what I'd consider top breeding quality horses. They will still run barrels just as well as geldings.

As far as they themselves go, without having true confo pictures and the fact that none of them are done growing except the mare, I don't see any glaring faults that would make me run the other direction. Just average decent horses with flashy colors.

I said possibly be a breeding stallion.

None of these boys look to be breeding quality to me.
