Would you buy this horse?

Although the gaits are quite comfortable, and the horse is sweet as pie, I was told the conformation is terrible and not to buy him. Would you agree? Why or why not?

I will let the conformation gurus handle this one, but I will just say I do not like the way he is put together. Head is too big, neck weird, looks like he may be cow hocked to me.........Is he over at the knee or is his shoulder funky?

He is sort of cute tho and sweet looking in his own special way.......

I like his body, but it does just look like someone kinda slapped on a completely different horses head and neck. His back is long. It looks like his front right *might* be a clubbed hoof?

He is trained in low-level polo, eventing, and dressage. I would want him for all three.

Can you get a better pic with him standing square?

This one makes him look camped under(hinds)- his neck looks under muscled- his forelegs look toed out- tied in at the knee- and has long pasterns.

I see a horse with a big head, but I like a horse with a big head. Anyone can have a beauty, I like the horses with some character in their looks.
I believe once in some work, he will be a nice horse for you, he does remind me of a Polo horse.
I really like his big feet.

I agree with others but honestly you need different pictures. I think better pictures would actually improve the way he looks. His neck for sure needs some muscle. His head looks HUGE partly to the halter the way it is.. I think. If it was fitted under his throat and not hanging down I believe it would look better as well.

he might not make the olympics but I don't see why he wouldnt be great for low level stuff, especially if he's already trained for it. I think he's adorable in a somewhat hilarious way, and looks sweet as heck.
