He has the typical questionable legs and tiny feet of the halter-bred stock horse, and unfortunately, he throws foals of even lower quality than himself. Not impressed with any of the offspring. The stud should be a gelding, IMO.
A friend of mine has a really nice cremello paint stud-- he's young and hasn't done much yet, but she's started him under saddle and plans to get him in the show ring and has bred him a couple of times to her Arab mares for half-Arab foals that are REALLY nice and should do wonderfully in the show ring at the HA shows. He's outproducing himself and with guaranteed color, she has high hopes for him. She bought him because he has good legs and feet and a sweet disposition, and you have no idea how many studs she looked at to find him... rare are the double dilute stallions who actually deserve to be stallions. But like she says, color sells, and if you're going to breed, you might as well breed for color and quality rather than just quality, because a buckskin will sell for twice as much as a bay. She has a point.
