Opinions on this horse?

Okay so I'm starting the process of looking for a horse, and I was browsing on this website and found this guy, what do you think of him?

Nice solid ranch horse build (I like that) Great bone, short cannon, good pasterns, nice legged, looks like he's been well taken care of. Negatives are me just being picky: built downhill and not a very refined head but his solidness makes up for it. My computer can't play video but I do like the looks of him! What do you want to use him for?

Honestly, I just want a horse I can do anything with. I don't really do anything in particular like barrel racing or roping, I mostly just pasture and arena ride. But I'd really like a horse I could take on trail rides.

He looks like a nice solid built guy I like him. He seems to be quiet & broke well enough for what you are wanting him for.Thought the price on him was a bit much & don't think he is a roan like they advertise,looks more like a greying horse or a black/brown sabino overo.

Yeah, the price seems a little steep to me too :/ I'm hoping that if I end up going to look at him they might back off the price a bit.

Buy him. He's great! Not purty head, but great bone and moves super well balanced. I love him. Around here, he'd sell fast!

This is me being nit-picky...but...i think he's grey. Not blue roan. So I hope your not stuck on his color! It'll probably change yearly.

I like him alot!

Color isn't a huge deal for me as long as the horse itself is good :)

I actually looked on APHA website. Horse has no Roans or no greys in lines but alot of black overo,brown close up. So yes horse as suspected he is probably more a black or brown sabino overo.

He looks great! Looks nice and solid, no major confo faults. I don't think it would hurt to take a look at him, as for the price, it may be a far price, nice, level headed, no holes in training, can do anything with horses are hard to come by these days. I think it would be worth it take a look at him!
