I think that he is beautiful. It isn't like you are offering a unregistered unproven horse for stud. He has proved himself and so has his progeny. There are always people for whatever reason that won't like what you have to offer. As far as I know there is no PERFECT horse of any breed out there.

It's nice to see a breeder show up and so graciously answer questions and offer information. More breeders should do that and post in this Stallion section instead of the breeding forum where they don't have to answer to anyone

Stallion owner I commend you for answering all the questions here and addressing the conformation comments. You must have much faith in your breeding program.

Very good to see someone accomplish their goals..and to proudly stand up for your program/horses.
:) Best of luck to you!

For those who don't like me-- it's mind over matter; I don't mind - - and you don't matter.

They have good conformation, unbelievable sweet dispositions, their offspring are easy to train )some say born broke), they are proven in show ring & breeding shed. If I said they were perfect I would be a liar, but they are worthy of reproducing and have proven that. My other stallion is Painted Coos younger (14 yr old) 1/2 brother through dam - A Spectacular Flash whom I'm sure is also not perfect but close enough for me & the people who have his offspring.

I agree.. This "perfect" thing is a sad commentary on those who profess themselves experts, when in reality, anyone with a sane mind knows better.
No horse is perfect. I choose mine as you do yours-- temperament foremost, and informed breeding as a rule.. ;)

I wish more people who toot their horns about how fantastic their stallions/breeding program are, actually HAD something to toot about. Like a proven show record in something more than local shows or small classes.

I wish those breeders did more with their breeding stock than chase them around to make them run pretty or rear up for pictures.

I wish those breeders took actual conformation shots of their breeding stock instead of hiding behind the "action shots".

I applaud a breeder who actually PROVES their stallion has a good mind under saddle before pimping him out to whomever is willing to stroke their already super-sized and baseless ego.

I applaud a breeder who doesn't pretend that "overseas buyers" are the be-all and end-all to proving their stud is actually worth something.

Nice stud Karmaridge.

Not actually relevant to the thread but unless specifically asked to post or sit the rider can choose whichever they prefer at Training Level - most people tend to opt for posting.

I'm really liking that mare. Great color. I do like the way she moves. Looks like her trot is pretty comfortable to sit.

Having met Coos in person, I can say, his disposition is fantastic and he has great conformation. I have never met a better mannered stallion who is as calm and level-headed as he is! I'm looking forward to having my Coos baby in Spring 2014!
