My new horse

So I went to see a horse that was being advertised for many months on end in my area. The advertised it as,
"Very well mannered, laid back horse. Is quiet to do anything with. Does have a teeth condition but the vet said he isnt in any pain prior to it. 6 years old, 16.1hh. Not the best looking bloke out there, Has a face only a mother could love. Was broken in at 2 and has been used once in a while as just a plodder as he becomes goey very easily when he feels like it. Thinks he is royalty and tries to show it. Comes with saddle, saddle blanket and a custom made bridle as no horse bridles fits him. Priced to sell as everyone who has come to see him has wanted a 'pretty horse' not a simple, kind horse. Located, Queensland."

Anyway so out I tracked to the paddock for where this laid back 6 year old lived. The owners warned me to look at the horses heart, and not to judge a book by its cover. By the time we got there I was slightly panicked, thinking this horses face would be scarred, or possibly something very wrong with it. Not long later we finally emerged from the trees to a paddock and there were a gorgeous chestnut horse, four stocking and a blaze, his body colour rich and his coat nice and shiny. I frowned, wondering why they had said he was hideous when he was the most gorgeous horse I'd laid eyes on. But the owner led me past him and I became confused. Standing in the corner of the paddock with its head down was a bay horse and what I saw stunned me so bad when we got him tied up to take a closer lol I took a photo...
So here, without further ado, is my new noble steed :P

(btw anyone who cant take a joke, dont comment, I'm just having a laugh)

Pish posh, you don't ride the head anyway! Looks to have decent conformation otherwise.
