    Definitely geld him. At 5 years of age and as a Quarter Horse stallion, he should have significant show results to be marketable as a stallion. He is way behind the 8 ball, so geld him.

    Geld him. At 5 years old and UNREGISTERED, there is no reason on this planet for him to keep his balls.

    Geld him. You're not going to get your money back from trying to sell breeding to an unregistered, unshown 5yo QH stud. Truly, it would be a waste of your time to try and spend money on advertising him to get breedings.

    Yes, you are wasting your time trying to establish yourself as a breeder. Geld Him.

    Is this thread a prank?

    I can't decide if I should saddle up the drama llama, dust off the clue bat, or get out my soapbox.

    Thank you for saying it pine cone.
    There is no way someone spells that badly, it's for sure a troll.

    His email matches up to a Facebook account, he looks to be legit, maybe just a guy who isn't a terrific speller

    Griss, if your colt isn't registered yet, it probably costs a ton of money to get him registered with AQHA.

    As an unregistered stallion with no performance history, you will never earn enough breedings to cover even the cost of his hay.

    If you spend money and time taking him to shows where it doesn't matter that he's unregistered (like maybe cutting or something?) AND he turns out to be super talented, you might make money--but that's after putting, ohhh...maybe $20K into him? And being lucky enough that he turns out to be successful.

    Your best bet is to cut him and get him to the point where he's a fun ride for an amateur, and sell him

    “Colonel Freckels” has 972 foals.. wholly molly! There are a BUNCH of “own grandsons” of this stallion out there. 407 horses currently listed for sale on dreamhorse.com with Colonel Freckels in their pedigree. Sounds like a flooded market.

    If that is this unregistered, unproven stud’s claim to fame, he needs to be gelded asap. It is pretty safe to say there are more than a few “own grandsons” of Colonel Freckles out there.

    One has to go pretty far back before they find a relative of Katys Gift that is accomplished. This horse certainly isn’t breeding material based on pedigree alone.

    Other factors aside, AQHA *was* just having a special to register older horses for $300. I'm told they offer it somewhat often (hoping so, since I just got a 5yo mare whose papers were never turned in, and we weren't able to get the paperwork completed before the special ran out).

    That said, he should still be cut, and then registered.
