They were the orginal spurt horse when crossed with a thoroughbred, when the Irish sports horse came in there was no need for them anymore. Also he can jump out of a 6 ft field when we made out first attempt to separate him from his mare. Very talented horses and are very intelligent, such a shame they're in decline.

Please get the poor horse a saddle that fits it properly.

If you are advertising a stud then you need far better pictures, the breeding needs to be stated and does he have a basic or Quality approved stallion lisence fromthe CBHS.

He is very light weight for CB

That sale was just a light one to get him used to the girth it signed nothing and he's only worn it twice before be changed it. He's young and still filling out and yes he does have a quality approved licence. These are the only pictures of him and I don't have his breeding, the owner didn't want to put them up for some reason. I think she wants people to use him for him, not hours blood lines.

You choose a stallion based solely on blood lines, temperament and show records. I wouldn't breed to this stallion just cause he's pretty and I want to "use him for him" that's bull.

*scratches head* that makes no sense. his blood lines ARE who he is and are part and parcel of the package of him. If the owners don't want that information out there about his breeding and won't/can't do quality pictures, it makes no sense to advertise him.

then she wont get any even vaguely decent mares. Part of the choosing of a stallion for a good mare is looking for bloodlines that compliment your mares and for the conformation niether of which can be seen in this advert. Also the CB gene pool is so small that inbreeding is a real issue. Your lad could be too closely related to the mare and thus the mares owner would risk a diseased or malformed foal.

What competition results has he got to recomend him? part of advertising a stallion perticularly one who hasnt done anything is the results of the horses parents.
Breeding the stallion to sub standard mares is a good way to get his stallion liscence pulled.
How many foals does he have?

The most important time in a horses life for a saddle to fit perfectly is when backing! that one is half way up his neck for goodness sakes!

Not my choice. I don't know how blood lines and he hasn't been owned long. Difficult to get good pictures in the winter with 16 horses to look after.

Actually no it's not that hard to get pictures in the winter even with that many horses. Halter horse, bring horse from field/barn where, brush, take some nice conformation type pictures and there you go. Using "there's no time!" as an excuse only makes the horse look worse and worse. If you don't have time to take pictures, do you have time to do proper care of mares in for breed?? those are the kinds of questions that can be raised by those types of statements.

Also, if you don't know his blood lines and you don't get to make decisions, you probably shouldn't be advertising and just leaving that to the actual owners...

I already said he had 1 foal.

He hasn't been shown due to him being nervous at the moment. The owner would speak to the mates owner about blood lines, just initial interest. Horses aren't her main job, just a hobby.
