As for conformation, he's gota nice shoulder, good depth through his girth and his legs appear to be clean and straight - maybe a touch toed in on the left fore but that could be how he was standing for the photo. His neck comes out a little flat, but if he can bend his hocks then you can get away with that.
I wonder though if he is either built a little downhill, or with a weak 'engine' due to their lack of clear side shots that are usually common practice when selling a horse as a potential sport horse. His back looks quite straight from this angle... I would definitely be asking for video, or AT LEAST a clear side on shot on a flat surface.
Nope, he is 160cm so JUST 16hh!!
If he is still up, I will ask when Duffy is truly sold and I don't get any comeback, but he sure is a looker, and I was thinking for that price might be worth taking a look at!
There are LOADS out here right now though, I'm almost wanting to enquire about a Trakehner, 4yo, looks like it moves well, but its POA, so I dropped the price bracket down and it was still going under 900 which is NOT usual, so unless they accidently priced him wrong (this happened once when I phoned up for a horse priced at 5k and it was meant to be 50k xD) we will see! I'm looking, if I sell, pay off loan and save for three months, to have about 7k to play with!
