Oh good grief! Get the scissors out now!
My gelding has a better stallion crest than this yoke. I'm terribly sorry, but his whole le front end is just, quite frankly horrible. I love a good neck, and never buy one with a crap neck, so that's an immediate turn off
his hind end isn't a huge amount better either.

btw... Just wondering, why do you like horses so huge. It is scientific fact that horses over 17hh tend to have more breathing difficulties and I have found from experience that the bigger the horse the less likely they are to stay sound. They also tend to be really clumsy (see my horse for reference). Not bashing huge horses... Merely curious why you like them so massive when there are so many problems.

Now that is a stud that I would run from as fast as I could.

He needs to be gelded, terrible conformation.

Using a horse like this is an excellent example of back yard breeding, owner has a mare and decides, because she is a mare, to use a local stallion just because it is fun to breed and cheap.

Big mistake.

And then make the stallion owner pay for the vet fee due to your mare being bred accidently.

That should have been done immediately on an accidental breeding and it is irresponsible not to have done so. That horse should not be a stud and obviously they haven't a clue or they would not have had an accidental breeding.

I do think people are being a bit harsh... Though, harshness aside, there are valid points here. He'd make an ok gelding... Stud, meh...

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
