First thing I see is a long back. I can't judge his shoulder well because he's leaning forward, but there's something about it I don't like. Seems like he toes out behind, but again, might be angle and he's not properly set up. I don't like his loin connection, either.

I'd expect a bit of a jackhammer of a ride, honestly, and some back issues on top of it. I'd get a PPE if I were you.

Again, all based on poor photos, but that is what I see.

Can't really tell anything by those pictures, other than he is a horse lol. And maybe that he is quite find boned for an appendix.

Actually that his feet having been looked after as they are a bizarre shape.

Hmm looking again I would say I hope he is no more than 4. Just by going by his topline.. it looks very undeveloped. Maybe a young horse not work...

I'm not a fan. Long back. Shallow girth. Don't like his hind end. Of course, those aren't the best pics to go on, but that's just my opinion of what I do see.

FWIW I think those pictures are misleading. I don't think he has a long back, I think he has a long croup and a shallow girth which makes him long.

Thin, possibly straight shouldered, also back at the knee and that near front is a club foot with a sheared heel which would really concern me. Would need to see better pics to really tell.

I just pulled this thread up on my iphone so I could check that out better by making the pic larger. I was wondering if I was seeing things.

He also has a lump on the inside bottom of the off front knee. And he 'might' have a curb on the near hock

Would you be as drawn to him if he were brown?

The pictures really are nearly impossible to judge him by, but the left front foot would worry me quite a bit. I'd deal with a lot of different build issues before I'd deal with foot issues.
