Pale palomino's conformation

So I saw this guy on Craig's List and he's cheap only $300. He's cheap though cause he's only halter broke and had some parelli ground work. But he's gentle and likes people and is used to being around people so I'm told but I dunno I like his substance and if he's easy to handle training him will be easier. I like to pick up the odd unbroken project horse and break them and make them a useable member of horse society here and there. Plus I helps me become a better trainer and what can I say I enjoy it. Anyways these are the only pics she sent me I know they aren't the best for conformation but hopefully you guys can piece something kinda together lol. Also you guys have any idea on what breed he looks like I noticed he kinda looks like my friends draft cross he also has a wavy mane and tail. Thanks!

He could be a curly or have the curly breed in him, as they have a bigger build and wavy or curly mane and tail. They can also have feathery legs. He has a nice head and good colouring, but I am not too good at conformation.

Ooh, I like him. A lot actually. I'm not an expert, and the pictures aren't the best for conformational judging, but here's what I see:
He's got a pretty face and a kind eye. I like his patterns and he seems to have a nice shoulder. He's got good bone. Maaaaybe his back is a tad long.
How old is he? He's a cutie :)

I would not say draft . Quarter or morgan or something similar type. Not heavy enough to be a draft cross. Hard to say in those pics. He looks okay, but he needs a good farrier and maybe a tad cow hocked ? And in one pic his knees looked wonky, but it could be the pic .. hard to tell.
Looks like he will make a cute little riding horse and project . Good for you for taking on these horses, even if you do sell them .

Yeah I was starting to think quarter horse and Morgan as well. And I enjoy starting horses. Ocassionally one will catch my eye and if they have a good nature and mind I'll put 30 to 90 days on them get them started really well the sell to the appropriate leveled rider.I love seeing a previously wasted horse just sitting in a pasture leave to a good home that will ride and appreciate them. But if I really like them occasionally they stay with me. I got a feeling I'd get attached to him he's look like a sweet boy. And he's only five years old he's at great age to learn still. He definitely needs his feet done immediately the are some long toes.

He looks like a Quarter Horse to me. QH can sometimes have wavy manes and tails. Our gelding Sarge's hair is all wonky in the winter when it is long and is curly looking. He is a registered QH with champions all over his pedigree so he isn't back yard bred! (Sire is Right This Minnick by Colonel Freckles) I like this little fellow and it maybe because he reminds me of Biscuit. Except for the wavy mane and tail he could be Biscuit. I paid $1500 for Biscuit and now, after 2 years on him, I wouldn't take 10 grand for him. He is fabulous.

I think you will like this boy once you get him home and work with him. Biscuit wasn't broke until he was 5 or 6 years old either but he was sweet and gentle. Check out my blog on Biscuit and I think you will find he is Biscuit's double!
