It couldn't hurt if you're really
interested in him. They may have just posted a wonky picture and he doesn't really look like that. But if he looks like that in all the rest of them too, you'll never spend another moment second guessing your decision if you decide to pass on by.
I didn't take a great look at the rest of him earlier, just his hind legs, but Ricci is right, he's also got the typical halter horse legs/feet. Really small feet and really thin legs with really upright pasterns all the way around. The only really good thing I can say is that it doesn't look like he inherited his daddy's calf knees.
Either way, with the market like it is, even with his parents being "famous" halter horses, I wouldn't give more than $1000 for him....and only that if
his legs aren't jacked up like they appear to be.
Personally, I think the owners must be smokin' crack to think he's worth $5000, but I'm sure someone will pay it.
Are you dead set on getting an appy? Do you want a young horse that's green or an older one that has some training? Gelding or mare or does it matter? Any particular height range?
Just browsing through your area CL (not sure exactly where you're located so I have no idea if any of these are even close), here are a couple that I like the looks of a whole lot better than that appy 3 Year Old Grey Mare Registered Overo Gelding Palomino Gelding - Barrels, Roping, etc
And I like all
of these better... even the weanlings look like they'll be built quite a bit better. AQHA, APHA geldings & others
