Paint Conformation Critique

Just wondering what you guys thought of this stallion. I've been told a few things about him and wanted to see if the people of Horse Forum are in agreement. :P

IMO he would make a nice gelding, though might have limited use due to his conformation.

Attractive head, nice length of neck which ties in low. Shoulder is upright with low point of shoulder, producing a closed shoulder angle. Flat withers, strong topline, shallow and weak hip, very post legged behind with small joints and is extremely upright on all pasterns. Light on bone, slightly back at the knee. He will most likely have limited soundness as a riding horse. I would never use this horse as a stallion.

Sorry if he is your horse, but that is what I see.

Tryst nailed it on the head, definitely not stallion material. Will also add that his coupling looks long and weak.

ditto on tryst's analysis. pretty color and head but....that's about it. From a confo perspective of course.

Oh... And for what it is worth I commend the stallion owner for providing a nice conformation photo :)

OP you have been posting threads about paint stallions critique confo & pedigrees. What exactly are you wanting in a stallion & maybe forum members can help advise you on pedigrees & conformation type to look for

Thank you all!

Tryst- thank you for all that! lol, a lot of what you said is what I was thinking. I thought I liked him until I saw this picture, but I wasn't so sure after I saw it. I love him a lot, but his legs are my main concern. And no, he's not my horse. :P

paintedpastures- wow, I hadn't noticed I had posted so much that people would notice. XD lol I'm thinking about breeding my Arabian this spring and have been interested in Arabian/Paint crosses for a while now, plus I like tobianos a lot. I'm basically looking for a stud who would complement my mare nicely, with good conformation, homozygous for the tobiano gene, not too tall or *too* stocky (though I love stockier horses), and a good pedigree if possible, lol. Oh, and a quiet, willing personality too. The horse I posted above, I love his head and neck, and I like how he's a tad less stocky than other Paints I've seen, simply because I think he might be a better match for my mare because of that. If all of that makes sense, lol. But I am concerned about his legs.

I have found another stud, but they didn't have confo pics up. I might be going to visit him sometime soon...maybe I'll see if I can take a picture then. He's gorgeous and I don't think he's too stocky either, and he's only around 15.1 or 15.2. The only thing is that his pedigree isn't as good as that of the other Paints I've seen, but I'll see if I like him when I go visit maybe. :P

I'm sure I can remember one of our Canadian members looking at a coloured warmblood stallion - the Arabian x warmblood are getting really popular in the part bred Arabian sport horse classes in the US
