I know plenty of people that use them as their everyday workin ranch horses..
If he knows his job- does it well.. he's a good horse. Id rather have a mare bred to a horse that's got a great demeanor and calm temper than what most people are breeding today- (wild crazy no brains havin studs) it says a lot about him to be used everyday with other horses and be a good horse. That's a stud I would not geld (depending on his conformation) that's the type of stud you could do a lot with- go to the shows- trailride- or work. Sounds like you got a good one!
Oh and welcome to the forum.
