    I would want to see some under saddle pictures of him and some better conformation shots with him in a lot better weight. He is better in the last pictures weight wise but they are not good pictures at all and would not have used them for a stallion.

    Breeding 16 mares should not drag a stallion down if they are being feed well. Even if they are working.

    Very pretty color. I don't see stallion quality though.

    As a stud owner and someone who worked at numerous halter facilities I will say these stallions and mine as well are shown and breed numerous mares a year and they were NEVER under weight.

    So, I just read all 11 pages here. And I guess there are parts missing?

    Anyway, my take, FWIW (not much!): I wouldn't consider him as a stallion because of his conformation flaws. I wouldn't consider him as a purchase even if he were a gelding because of his conformation flaws. It's just not what I like and look for. I like ranch horses, one that can take a 10-12 hour day and you still have plenty of horse under you. One that can rope, climb mountains, go over rough and rocky terrain and take care of his rider. I like a big hip, a nice deep heart girth, a strong loin, an underside that matches the top side, a good neck that ties in correctly. I don't see that in this horse, either in his "skinny" stage or his "heavy" stage.

    I've had a stallion for 10 years now. He's 18 years old and each spring, he drops weight, whether I'm covering mares or not. I up his feed accordingly. I prefer my horses go into winter slightly over weight because winter here can be a killer! By the time spring comes around, I start upping my stallion's feed so he maintains a steady "5" or 5.5 on the BCS. My stallion is 15.2 or 15.3 and about 1300 lbs. He's fit right now. I don't see this stallion being "fit".

    And I have to say it ... probably get in trouble for it but oh well ... Did I read it right that as a 3 year old, he covered 16 mares??? Really??? I think that bothers me more than most everything else. Color breeding just is not my "thing", sorry.

    You do know this just made me go check out the pictures again to make sure he HAD TWO EARS!!!! you definitely got my attention!!

    BTW he's gorgeous and I'm his newest fan on here! What's his pedigree?

    ETA: just relized how old this thred is and now I"m going back to read the pages I missed.


    NEW ETA: I agree with the above! Didn't realize he was a stallion.
