Hopefully he jumps well, and jumps bravely. If he does, then you've got yourself a Diamond in the rough, for sure.
I personally, love his look!
Ho hum, my dear, but I believe that you may be a bit biased with that statement. Frankly, I wouldn't want to sell him to anyone who didn't want to buy him because he didn't have "chrome" – not exactly a relevant factor! ;)
Just put a lot of good dressage, and later jumping work on him, and you have yourself a shining (not to mention valuable!) star! Work closely with a trainer to bring him along, and I am certain he can get you there! He's got excellent conformation, especially for an OTTB. Don't know the way he thinks or the way he moves, but judging purely off of these views of conformation and expression, I think you just may have yourself a gold nugget!
And also, if you ever need to rehome him... gimme a call!! ;D
I hope to see more of this gorgeous boy. A big THUMBS UP!
