Really nice pedigree.

They have listed what he is bred to do.

Cant tell much as for conformation with a saddle on and half sideways.
He looks to be long in the pasterns in the front.
From what I see so far, cant really say stallion material without better body shots without the saddle.

well, they both have okay, not great, but passable pedigrees. The perlino has too long of pasterns in the front, as snickers already mentioned, and I think a rather short neck. I'd have to see better pics, but I also think he is turned out behind.

the buckskin has a short and very thick neck, and seems heavier on the forehand than on the hind end, meaning he will likely stop on his front end instead of using his rear. His legs are better than the perlino's though. But for 12k, I think you can do A LOT better than that.

Of the two, if you held a gun to my head and made me pick one , I choose the buckskin. The perlino has the better pedigree, but the buckskin has a better and more solid structural conformation. But to be honest, I don't like either one of them all that much.

Miss Leanne, both those horses are drop dead gorgeous.

As fot the others. . .I agree that the perlino has long pasterns. He has a nice head, though. The buckskin seems to be built nicely but has a very thick neck which if someone was wanting to breed for the show ring I'm not sure how much they'd like that.

I'm not sure about either being used as a stud though.

I didnt see the second one.

I agree, real thick neck and that guy must be really tall, because it be hard pushed to say the buckskin was 15.1. Also the only discipline he knows is breeding.

Ok clue me in again on why you are looking for a stallion?

Miss Leanne, that palomino horse is very nice.
I agree with what has been said about the two original horses. I don't like the buckskin's neck at all. The perlino is ok, but the pasterns are long.

I would be totally remiss, however, if I didn't mention that stallions are a FREAKING BUTTLOAD OF WORK AND INCONVENIENCE.

And it's not always the stallions that are the worst but the mares! I have two mares who are constantly annoying and irritating to the one stud horse I have. The have all but destroyed the gate to his pen and IT'S ELECTRIFIED! Trust me it's hot and they still try to tear it down.
Can't turn Sonny the stud out because Reno the gelding will try to kill him through the fence. So Sonny lives locked up in a small paddock like a prison cell, not fair to him. Can't put Kitty and Dixie out on pasture because Jet the other stud is out there and Dixie is his half sister and Kitty is my riding horse. Always have to make sure the fences are hot or we'll have a mixed up herd and not so good consequences. ARGH!!! Some days I'm so close to dialing Dr. Matt's phone number and saying GELD 'EM ALL!

I like the black the best; I think the other two have a few confirmation flaws even though they are both nice... - another suggestion is to buy yourself a young one (a yearling) and raise it - too me, one you have raised and trained is much easier to handle when they do become stallions.. At least that is what we do - I have never liked the way most people train theirs, and I want a stud that thinks he is a gelding except when he is in the breeding halter..

Stallions are a royal pain in the butt if you have no experience with them. They can be pretty dangerous no matter how well they are trained, and I think it is easier to know the animal, and have him know you, if you raise one up...

We have Joe, a buckskin (my avatar), as well as a grulla prospect (Smokey) just coming two (hopefully standing next year), and are thinking of keeping one off our buckskin mare if is is a stud colt... It would be 96% foundation bred, and a line back dun, homo for the black and dun factor) - I am not sure where that puts our brains are at this point but we have three decades plus of experience handling studs, although I still never trust any of them!...

Lots of stout fencing and lots and lots of handeling are the only suggestions I can give you once you make a choice! Good luck - half the fun is the search!
