9 year old Gypsy Vanner - critique


We are thinking of adding a gypsy vanner gelding to our "horse family".
This is one we are looking at...

He is a 9 year old gelding, good on trails, barefoot, good natured, etc.. He is 14.1 hh
Unfortunately, I do not have video on him right now.

I would like some opinions on his confirmation...

no one could make any kind of accurate assessment of his conformation from that photo. All i can say is that he looks to be very healthy and is gorgeous, to boot.

To give you an accurate conformation critique, we need pictures of him standing square from the side, front and back. He is gorgeous, though

Looks to be a nice boy, with pretty markings and in excellent condition. Good head. Nice length of neck. Appears to have the correct 'set' to his rear. Good feather. Can't tell much else. I see he has a double mane. Some consider that very desirable.

Who are his sire/dam?

If you haven't had a Gypsy before, you will love the breed.
