How old is he, exactly?
From what I watched, he looks like the definition of a fugly yearling with poor breeding and training. I have no idea as to why they're lunging this early, if you can even call it that. Letting him canter around on a rope in circles, bucking and tossing his head is not what I would classify as lunging.
That aside though, its really just hard to tell. Not only because of the dark arena, but because of those winter fuzzies. My miniature horse tends to look like some sort of freakazoid pony during the winter months with every conformation error in the book, but when you shave her down she's actually a very decent little animal. He also wasn't squared and kept dancing around in the video. I did see poor LS joint placement, upright shoulders, toeing out in the back, and butt-highness. The butt high feature is totally normal for his age, and his legs might correct themselves a bit, but the other things will most likely not go away.
All in all, I wouldn't buy him even as an all-arounder, simply because he's already had a lot of bad manners drilled into his head and he thinks they're 'A-OK' right now. However, I won't say that for sure until I've seen better pictures. Its really just all together hard to see him in the video.
