Considering buying this yearling Shetland

I think I'm going to go take a look at this yearling (stud) Shetland this weekend. (If I buy him, I'll geld him asap).

What do you guys think?

I think he's adorable. He's going to make a KYOOT gelding!

He's a cutie, that's for sure. Going to be handsome when he grows up I bet.
Confo isn't bad either. The only thing I don't like is that he's over at the knee but apart from that he looks like he'd develope nicely.

I really like how he looks more "horsey" than ponyish. I am just not a fan of the round, barrel like confirmation on a lot of ponies (though a lot of them are simply overweight and would look better if they were in condition).

And... he looks a lot like my first childhood pony:



The seller indicated that he's "shy" which concerns me a bit. If I have time I'll run up and look at him on Sunday (he's located about 2 hours away from me).
