Horse looks pretty good from what I can see.

Needs a farrier.. those feet need trimming big time and his neck looks a bit short.

Personally I don't care about the head (you don't ride the head). I DO care about how the head sits on the neck (which you cannot see).

Without saying anything about the horse, what does it say that (1) the pictures don't show anything, (2) he is overdue for farrier care and (3) others have stated that the horse is not 4 as advertised?

The horse may be great, but you shouldn't just believe whatever the seller tells you. IMO, make sure you see him ridden, ride him yourself and visit more than once.

Well, the pictures aren't great, but from what I can see, he looks like he has a very long back and loin, with weak loin coupling. His head is down in every picture so its hard to tell, but his shoulder looks pretty upright and he neck looks like it ties in low and is pencil thin...possible ewe neck?

For sure his feet need to be done asap, he could also use some groceries!

Let us know what you thought in person!
