Possible stallion prospect and what do you guys do with your stallions
I am looking for a bit of advice. I am thinking about purchasing a stud colt weanling. He has amazing bloodlines, the sire and dam have wonderful temperaments. The stallion is used as an all around horse all over the ranch. The mare is used as a kids horse, and cowhorse.
He has ON HIS papers
Doc Bar X5
Smart Little Lena
High Brow Hickory
and a few other big names
He looks like he will be a very nice put together colt.
Should mature to about 15.2h
I am looking to seriously compete with him in:
Used in feedlots/on the PFRA
Mounted Shooting/Mounted Archery
Extreme Cowboy Challenge
and really just about anything else I can get into and compete in.
I have a 3 acre paddock set up for him - 4 strand barbed wire, with ElectricWire top, bottom and middle.
If he has any flaw that would make him unsuitable for a stud prospect - including temperament and confo, he WILL be gelded.
Curious, those of you on here - what all do you do with your stallion? Do many of you ride your studs?
