we have a stud colt with no information on his mother what so ever she is deemed grade mare. we think she is a running quarter. I have been offered $3000 for him, and fully intend on keeping him entack. He a dark grulla almost black with white stockings.
i think that there is no harm in keeping him as long as you can control him. who to say in 4 or 5 years hes not the leading champ in what ever you do. then what??? you dont have to breed him. But its all a matter of control.

Corina, I agree with you that as long as the colt has a great temperment and good conformation it's ok to keep them a stud until you see what his potential is. I do think you also have to look at what his potential foals would be worth. Are they registerable? What will they excel at and is there a market for it? It's just a fact that if a horse does not have papers it has a higher chance at ending up in a bad situation. Is your colt registered? I'm not trying to be mean, I think he's very cute It's just that there are so many grade horses out there and honestly you shouldn't breed for grade. Again, I do agree that you don't have to breed him and can always geld later

Corina - he is a very good looking foal but I hate that he's not papered especialy with the market what it is. What do you know about his father? Its possible that the appendix horse registery will take him. I do agree with not gelding until your sure you dont have to breed but it cant be undone.
