Talking Thinking of buying.. critique?

Okay, I am back again with another horse :) Since Kisa ( the Friesian/Paint) is turning out to be too far away and likely too much trouble, I bring to you gentle folks the second of favorites: Mateo

5 yo PB Friesian gelding:

Short video of walk/trot
Action start about o:45 and ends about 2 mins later. Weird people videos, lol.
MATEO 9-28-2012 - YouTube

He is up for 4500 and not too too far away, I could actually go see this one, just over budget. Haven't talked to these folks yet, plan to soon, but I wanted some opin's.

Use:to help me get into shape, mainly english, trail and pasture rides, maybe short end, play day stuff. For overweight gal.

First up, he seems a little pricey for a pleasure horse haha. If I could afford one like him though, I'd go for it.

He honestly doesn't look like a pure Friesian to me. Their necks are usually higher set, and back a little shorter than that I think.

Now on to what you actually want :P He looks beautiful on the move, though he doesn't track up in the trot, though it could be the fact that it was such a lazy pace. He looks to have nice solid legs, short cannons and pasterns, short back... Everything we bigger people need to look for. He looks nice and square too.

I like him. I think you should go and see him, he seems great.

Ya, I agree he doesn't look purebred. Build is good, but other characteristics are a little off for a purebred. Like his hair, lol. Beautiful guy tho, about 5 hours from here. Might just have to take a road trip.

This is a young filly I would like a peek at, much more typey.

Thoughts...could bring along a young one, just keep riding the ones I am now...still plenty of reason to go everyday..hmm.. if I go young tho, going to get a good one.

Any thoughts on these two? This is yet another for the "roadtrip"

Friesian/gypsy vanner... sweet looker, might even be doing more than play days :)

I am not sure how heavy you are but if you have some that you are riding how is another I going to help you loose weight. Personally would loose weight and then get a horse. Also if the horse is broke to ride why doesn't the video show him being riden?

If it was that easy Churumbeque, I would be 125 and in groovy shape :) My motivations are convoluted. Ask the other heavy gals here, they will tell you similar things. Having your own makes it all that more ..uhm.. I can't find the words, but its easier that way.

You live in west texas, I can't believe you can't find a big stocky QH for $1000 that can do what you want.

I like this horse much better. He has better overall porportions. He seems very honest and WYSIWYG. I always prefer geldings, if quiet trail horse is what you want.

When my daughter in law was looking at a "purebred" Friesian I called the registries and they told me all Friesians are microchipped at birth and if there are no unregistered purebred Friesians in the US. That they would all be able to be registered due to the microchip. I am not sure I remember it all correctly but you could always call them yourself.
