i'm surprised that people are balking at the price tag. Even if he's 1/2 as gorgeous in real life, he's still worth the price. Especially if he's got the personality they say, I'd pay that much for a gelding with that attitude. His hocks are picture perfect, his muscling is divine, none of the pics are true square so he might be a little steep in the croup, great pasterns, great back, strong topline, gorgeous face, clean throatlatch. This horse would dominate in halter at the local levels and they are paying WAY more than $8500 for a solid 4H show horse...I would love to see how he moves. I agree, I would swoop him up if I had the space.
