Nice looking colt! I'm glad you are going to have him checked. A $100 horse can be very expensive $100-horse if he has issues that could be a problem down the road. But he sure seems worth the vet check.
(Busy-body comment: Those owners need to do something about those electric fence posts so another horse doesn't get hurt.)

Check the name of the dam because she's not coming up...either with the one you posted or variations of.

For the top side, Windchester was a great stud. This baby is foundation bred with a little bit of a modern twist. Not bulldog built, but more modern built. For $100 definitely worth a look! And the distance you need to go is a drop in the bucket. My horse was 90 miles away at my trainer's for quite a few years, and I bought a 3 WP mare from Texas.

Ok, so I'm now looking at this as more of a rescue situation... Those nice pictures were taken this summer before she weaned him. Since she weaned him he has lost some weight. During the weaning process, she decided it was a good idea to make him a stall out of loose plywood and cattle panels and he tried to break through that mess to get to his mom. Hence the leg injury. This was about 3 weeks ago. He's pretty scratched up on two legs, but nothing outrageously deep or on any tendon areas. The cut in the picture is the deepest/worst one. She told me she had pretty much not touched this boy and let him and his mama sit in the pasture without human encounter until a month ago.
His feet look TERRIBLE. They look like they are sound as far as structure and build go, but his hooves are so long that they are beginning to split in the middle on each hoof. She hasn't messed with his legs at all and when I was carefully rubbing him down to see what he would put up with, he kicked out every time I got to the top of his legs. Not in a mean way, but it was clear that he hasn't really been worked with at all.
He seems to have a sweet demeanor. He was a little nervous at first but is curious about EVERYTHING. He quickly learned that hubby's motorcycle helmet wasn't a monster, and then he stuck his nose right into it... I think he thought it was some kind of funky bucket and wanted to know if there was anything yummy inside! He does lead well and stood tied nicely for about 15 minutes while I talked to the owner.
SO with purchase ($100), geld ($200-ish), tricky hoof trim ($50+), and lots of TLC I think he will turn out to be the "good deal" we thought he was going to be in the first place. When my vet comes out for the gelding process, I'll have him check him over. Even if he turns out not being exactly what we wanted, I can't let him be treated like this anymore. We're in the process of arranging his trip to my barn.

He doesn't look too bad and he has a nice stout build. He isn't that underweight I don't see any muscle loss. He looks like he's wormy with maybe a hay belly, I think that's causing his riby look. A trim or two will remedy his feet. The cuts aren't too bad the ones on his cannon bone may not get all the hair back, but nothing looks infected. But it is a shame they put him in an unsafe area. Nice colt definitely worth buying. I like him a lot. If he were here in Oklahoma and I went to look at him I'd purchase him.

Thanks, Peppy! The owner did say she dewormed him for the first time ever two days ago so that could definitely be a wormy belly. He moves nicely on all four legs so I'm pretty sure any lasting damage from the cuts will only be minor and cosmetic, and I couldn't care less about a scar or two. Hubby is VERY attached to this boy! We are going to name him "Rebel," after his great-grandfather's old ranch horse who had a similar color and personality.

Great to hear you are getting him! He is so cute and I bet you were disappointed to find him in such a state.
