I'm perfectly fine with someone saying he doesn't have good conformation, etc. But I said if you need something else to give an answer then ask, that's all they need to do is ask, but instead I'm incompetent for not putting it up in the first place.

Then that is absolutely useless information, and no sense in passing it along. It's certainly not a selling point, and you yelling won't make it any less useless.

Oh, and your horse toes out in the front. That's a conformation flaw.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Little better, but the rear shot isn't useable. It's not straight on, he's not squared up and is grazing.

Looks to be a little knock kneed and slightly toed out.

Like I said the more information the better. Many sellers won't be bothered to contact owners if the ad is vague. I've seen so many "Broke, gelding, good with kids" ads. I can't contact each and everyone asking: what breed, how old, broke in what, etc. So I just skip over it. That's why it's important. Proper grammar, spelling, and punctuation also makes and ad look a lot more professional.

Sorry, he wasn't grazing, he just keeps his head down like that, better than it being up high .
But Uh, I just took em for fun, I can't get better pictures considering he's not here but at my grandparents mowing their field down. I never thought I'd need to use the pictures for something important so I didn't make him square up. And knowing him , he'd probably fidget around and move before I got the picture.

Just based off of your pictures and your description, I wouldn't personally pay more than $1,500 for him. But like others have posted, there are many other variables involved in the price of a horse. :)

Where Im from you can get a reasonably got horse like that for 800 atm. He seems to be just a typical allrounder and his conformation isnt at best... so i'd put 1k on him at the most. I may be right I may be wrong but that's all Im going to personally say. :) cute face though lol
