Unhappy Our new appy gelding

Here is our new appy. We are picking him up Saturday! Yep, he's got a tiny mane and tail, but I love him!
He is 9, broke- but a bit hot. He needs to be on a diet. I couldn't pass him up! I'm paying just a bit over meat price for him.
My husband isn't a fan of appy's. What do you guys think?

He looks super cute! That saddle is way too far forward, BTW. Can you get a better picture for us to see his whole body and face?

At least that means he is an easy keeper! haha

He's adorable. His pattern is probably my favorite on appies, and I'm sure he'll be fantastic with a diet and a bit more saddle time!

Yeah, I think he will cool down with some long rides and gentle hands. I needed horsey people to say he was cute. I wish his face was darker- but, he is still nice looking I think. I owned a very nice dark faced leopard appy years ago. This guy reminds me of him. Except my old one had a full mane/tail.
I couldn't find a real downside to buying him. I stared at his for sale ad for months before finally deciding to bring him home.

Look at that booty ;)

I didn't see any saddling pictures ( /ImDumb) but he is just the cutest thing! What are you going to name him?
