Critique Another Possible Buy? (QH)

I have another one, haha! This one I like quite a bit, he seems very kind. There is also a video of this guy.

Ad: Beautiful BIG and Quite Palomino Quarter Horse Gelding

Video:

What do you guys think? He needs work with his jump, I think, but he's only recently started over fences. Any red flags?

He is pretty cute but still green looking in his training. He is pretty strung out & doesn't want to soften in face & round up.
JMO,but Based on video i'd say he's overpriced

I don't know what's pretty fair in your area but around here he'd be about $1000 to $1500 tops if someone really fell in love with him.

He's still really strung out, all on his forehand and looks kind of hard to hold together. Pretty boy though! I'd knock $250 off just because they misspelled QUIET, that's a pet peeve of mine. He's QUITE what? GRRRRR, LOL!

Haha! I hate the misspelling too I think some people around here think that's a perfectly good alternate spelling for quiet.

The price is okay for the area, a little pricey but this farm is also trying to downsize rather quickly, so hopefully they could knock off another $500. I'm also going to try and do a trial lease before hand, if I decide I want him.

I really like him a lot I loooove his look and color (OMG I love his color. Darker palominos with manes that white?<3).

I think he could be a fun little project and buddy

If he can pass a PPE, and at that age he should, and the price is ok for the area and you LURVE him then Go for it!

He has the same "all strung out" issue that my mare tends to have, but he looks great to me! I'm sure you can work on his stance and all. I would agree with those who are suggesting to see if you can get a lower price on him. In my area, everyone is hurting due to hay shortages and such. If your area is similar I'm sure you could get them to come down. Looks like you found a nice one!
