I like him, his neck seems a little long, but he's a compact little thing. Interesting markings, I had to take a triple look at his flank, it looks like a paint smear.
His hocks look a little small, and I'd like some more bone on his legs. He looks like fun and I like that he's not too dandied up for the pictures, but is obviously healthy and cared for. I don't know enough about specifics to say as far as disciplines go (let Elana do that!) but I like him and think he would be a nice all around guy.

Nothing jumps out as being a big flaw. He looks a little like a tank on toothpicks, but his legs look sturdy enough. Back end could be a bit bigger IMO, but that's because I like big butts

Could use a tad more muscling for a big guy, but I think he's very good looking.

Thank y'all, I'm hoping I can go pick him up. He is a "free" horse and I thought he looked real nice from the pictures, but I won't know for sure unless I go see him. A pre-purchase exam will be done, he may be free but have loads of issues. And Tracer, I do think he needs a bigger butt!
