>>>>> He was gelded way back in the early summer.
Well that changes things, at least for me, because I was familiar with him being a stallion, and the flaws I pointed out
were from "is he stallion material" perspective.
>>>> I was just wondering if this was what a $4500 appy gelding looked like.
What are your plans for an appy gelding? Is this gelding trained in that direction? If not, is he physcally and mentally
in line with the direction you would want to go with him? That matters more than a chat lists' opinion of his conformation from two old photos.
>>>> I did speak with the owner and he seemed very nice and knowledgable. I love big, sexy appaloosa geldings and have been begging the husband
for another.( I thought if maybe I had two nice geldings I might talk him or someone into trail riding with me... Im always alone) This time I want one with
some really big fancy names in its pedigree- this guy seemed to have fit the bill. But what do I know.. everything I pick out is crap. Including the one i
already own apparently. Bunch of stinkin crap.
??? You asked about his conformation. IMO It is not perfect. I replied by sharing photos of 2 of his 1/2 sisters for
comparison-- also not perfect-- IMO better in a couple ways but also similar in a couple ways.
I never said nor do I think ANY of them are a "bunch of stinkin crap". Heck I purposefully bought both of the mares, and have one of them bred, and
plan to someday breed the other as well-- but to carefully chosen mates that will hopefully complement their strengths and minimize their faults, as much as
possible. BUT, that being said, the best advice I ever got regarding breeding is that if you would consider it a dealbreaker if a foal you breed for turned
out EXACTLY like a particular parent...... you are better off not breeding that particular parent-- well, I would RATHER see improvements over these mares in
their offspring, but--- their faults are not absolute dealbeakers for me, and they have some important strengths.
I also said I thought he was immature in the photos and I would like to see a photo of him with more maturity.
I must have missed which horse is your current gelding? Did he get clobbered in a previous critique?
