    Prospective stallions or nice geldings?

    Just wondering what you guys thought of these colts and whether or not they would be good prospective stallions.
    Misteree- 2013 Sorrel Stallion (Mr Elusive x Pretty Pizzazz) HYPP N/H. 15hh, typical Mr. Elusive yearling that will get better as he ages...Lots of Chrome and really good bad habits. ***to me he seems to have too much of a diaper butt for my tastes***

    Eheat- 2012 Bay Stallion (Mr Elusive x Cool Cruisin Tempest) HYPP N/N. 15.3hh, this is one of the prettiest Mr. Elusive colts we have seen. Has a gorgeous underline and is very correct. This guy could ride AND halter he's so bad habits and one of the sweetest dispositions you will ever encounter in a stallion.

    Notoryus- 2013 Buckskin Stallion (Mr Elusive x Sacrament) HYPP N/H. 15+hh, buckskin yearling stallion eligible for ABRA and IBHA papers. Dam is a multiple world champion mare and Sire has produced more halter champions than any other living halter sire today. Halter prospect, no bad habits, good minded colt.

    Anything N/H should never be considered a stallion prospect in my opinion. Other than that I honestly don't much care for any of them in general. I'm not a fan of how most halter horses look and these are no exceptions. Out of the three I like how the buskin looks best (but again n/h would be an instant no for me) but he still has awful, posty hind legs and really upright pasterns.

    I would consider the bay or let him grow up more before considering, but would probably look around harder. He is growthy though baby pictures could help figure out what he would end up as.

    I would never consider an N/H horse. They are not welcome in my barn.

    I don't like the buckskins back legs. And his genetic for hypp. So No on him
    The bay or sorrel, they need to grow more, but both would make very pretty geldings

    I didn't read the descriptions past the HYPP Testing. (and for some reason I can't see the pictures) Having witnessed HYPP attacks in person from an N/H, I would never breed anything that was N/H. I'd also want a full 5 panel result from the middle one.

    Not a fan of the sorrel's withers, the bay's waist, or the buckskin's legs.

    But I know nothing about horse confo so I'm just going from my opinion of what looks nice.

    TBH I don't think any of them would even make nice geldings due to their halter conformations... But definitely not stallion material due to the HYPP N/H on two of them.

    The bay would make a decent performance halter gelding.

    Honestly, all of them would make much nicer geldings than stallions.

    These horses really aren't impressive enough in my opinion to be bred. Conformation should be 90%+ and they should have good temperaments. Also, you should never breed horses that are n/h HYPP, that's just irresponsible breeding on your part. That's why so many horses are slaughtered each year..

    #1 & 3 = N/H for HYPP = Automatically geld, as in why haven't they yet?
    #2 is in a very growthy awkward stage, so either wait til he's 3 and filled out some or pass.
