Conformation is quite good. Feet need work. Obviously can't speak for health, soundness, or training.

From that photo, I would not be concerned. All I really see are high withers.

Agreed, his withers are a bit high but nothing really sticks out to me as being wrong with him.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

He looks high withered but otherwise, he looks like a 3 'circle' horse conformation wise. Obviously, can't speak about anything else. Just be careful if you're taking a horse from a known Kill Buyer site.

It's just that buying a horse in those circumstances, you can never be sure of what behavioral or medical issues may be there, hidden under the surface. Lots of people get good horses buying from these situations...others are not nearly so lucky.

The body conformation looks good to me. Lots of bone in the hocks, especially. But the face strikes me as of a horse older than ten. Just the slightly sunken look above and behind the eyes. Just an impression. Otherwise, I like his looks quite a lot.
