Yes, it's me AGAIN...opinions on this colt please

This is a colt that I really like, I have been staring at these pictures for two weeks now.
He is for sale at a very reputable breeding and training facility. I have rode several colts from this same place but with different bloodlines.

He is a 2012 colt

I guess I just wanted some reassurance before I make the 7hr drive.
What do you think?

Things I like about him are his short back, strong coupling, general croup and hip shape and I think he has a decent set to his hocks (though none of the photos shows his hind end all that well). And he is a pretty color.

Things I am not as keen on are slightly long pasterns, skinny neck, which appears slightly ewed and a touch short, plain head, possibly clubby left front foot and possible swelling in that same knee (in looks enlarged in both photos to me). He might be a touch back at the knee too.

Overall I think he is worth a closer look, but would make sure that left knee/front leg is not going to be an issue. IMO his heels are too tall all around too.

Thanks Tryst!

Agree with tryst. Close look at the LF. His face looks mustang/ Spanish.

I do like his croup and hip, nice. Hmmm I'm not sure if that neck is for me (but I'm finicky about necks) and the pasterns look a little longish and upright.

Thanks DHW and Muppet!

I will see if they wouldn't mind taking a couple pics for me before I go down there.
I actually like his head for the reasons DHW said..LOL. If he was a filly I might be turned off by it though.

I like his engine! Nice butt. His back is nice and short and his neck seems to tie in to his chest nicely and a bit low to his withers. He has a pencil neck.. but he is what.. a coming 2 year old? That may change.

He has a slightly steep shoulder but a nice short barrel.

He seems to be quite light in bone. As he matures and gets heavier you may wish he had more bone.

I like him. Neck seems a little too fine somehow, but he will probably grow out. Either way I wouldn’t knock him back for the right price, looks to me like he will shape up to be a good solid horse.

I appreciate the input everyone but it looks like I have to spend my "new colt fund" on fixing my truck. I managed to do almost $5000 worth of body damage today *sigh*

$3000 for the side panel of the fender and $1800 for a tailgate.
