Racking horse stud colt

Any notes on this Racking horse colt? He is for sale, they say he is two in august, and he is gaited. I understand the pictures are bad, but they aren't mine, and he isn't gelded or halter broke.

Green Broke
Doesnt look too bad in the pictures...
Decent shoulder. Neck possibly set a little high.
Somewhat mutton-withered.
Front legs look good.
Bum-high at the moment, but should level out with age.
Sharp angle to his croupe.
Hard to tell about the back legs. Appears slighty camped out but that could have something to do with his breed as well, not sure.

If I were to buy him, I'd probably have to buy a special custom gaited horse saddle, that's what the breeder/owner said.

It bothers me most that he's two and not halter broke. That makes me think the current owners are flaky, because if he was a stallion prospect they should think enough of him to halter break him.

And if they don't bother to halter break, then that's probably also the reason he isn't gelded yet.....not that he's a stallion prospect but that they just never took the time or money to get it done.

Maybe I'm just being a pessimist.

As for the saddle, you buy a saddle that fits your horse and don't worry about what it's called. A gaited saddle may fit him great. It may not. But a gaited horse doesn't HAVE to have a gaited saddle. I have a Missouri Fox Trotter and she does great in a QH bars saddle. It's all about whether the tree fits the horse.

As young as he is, if you buy a saddle that fits him now he may outgrow in in a couple of years. I think most people recommend waiting to get a custom saddle for a horse until you are sure they are done growing. Otherwise you will most likely have to buy a wider one later.
