Critique Possible Buy?

Awesome Mustang Trail Gelding for sale in Tujunga, California :: HorseClicks
So, I found this guy's ad and I'm thinking of sorting out a time to head up and check him out, but for now. What do you like and dislike about his conformation? Any major faults? Thanks.

The one thing that stands out to me is his short, upright pasterns. Might be slightly over at the knee(I'd be curious to see what the experts say if they chime in).

Are you looking to use him as a trail horse?

You know what, I really REALLY like this horse. I think he has amazing, solid body. He looks hardy. He has a longer back but I think his topline looks strong. Front pasterns may be a little straight, but his legs looks pretty darn good. His hocks are low. Although they look capped. Which wont hinder his movement or anything having to do with soundness. His head looks big, but he is super cute regardless. I'd take him home in a heartbeat. And Mustangs are highly intelligent and versatile.

He looks cared for and friendly a nice solid "using" type horse. If you're just looking for a trail horse I think you found a really nice one! I noticed it says sale pending, but no harm in inquiring.

He looks a little long backed, but he is one of the nicer looking mustangs I've seen.

I asked them and they said the sale is most likely a definite. I agree though, he's probably the best looking mustang I've ever seen.

Looks alright to me, if he has a decent temperament I wouldn't pass him up for the right price.

He is really nice looking- very solid and by the description on his page, very well mannered.

The only flaws I see are his pasterns look upright and he looks fairly long backed- which (by my eyes) he looks to already have a bit of sway. Could be how he is standing though and the fact he has a low set tail which can give the allure of that. Also his hock angle looks off, but he's not square so it isn't definite.

I think his pasterns could be from the farrier and could be corrected a bit. His sock on his front leg kind of trick the eye and I can't tell if he's over at the knee a tiny bit or if it's an illusion.
He is sickle hocked and has a bit of a long back though, but all around not a bad horse.
Depending on what you want him for I think he looks pretty good compared to a LOT of the horses I see for sale!
