BIG grey gelding, possible purchase?

This is zeek, he is a 7 year quarter horse gelding. He is not registered, but he's a gelding so it don't matter. He is well broke. 16.1-16.2 hands tall, he is a big boy. I mean look at the size of his feet!! lol. They want $2,600 (obo), again he is a well broke horse, and has been a ranch horse, and you know how ranch horses go. The thing that sticks out to me about him, is his left knee, I think it might be the pictures, but im not sure it kinda looks big, but again I think its the angle of the pic. He also kinda looks like he is standing back, but I don't know, horses stand funky somteimtes. She says he is sound, but of coarse I would do a vet exam on him. He's got a big ol butt on him lol. This is just a maybe, I have someone interested in duchess, but nothing set yet, so if she sells he is one that I would like to go take a look at. Let me know what you think. Big Athletic Gelding-broke to Ride ( this says he is at $3,000 but he is not anymore. (the owners website). REDUCED BIG ATHLETIC GREY GELDING QH. (other add with the current price.) I like him a lot, but I want some other opinions. The first picture is the one im talking about were the left knee looks a little odd and the way he is standin, but I just think it was the pictures because, in the others he looks just fine.

You can't go wrong with stocky legs and hooves to match. He is a nice looking gelding overall. The pictures aren't the best, is he standing on unlevel ground? His hindquarters look way uphill! Lol The only thing that looks like it my be a future problem are his knee's. Either they have him set up weird or his knee's are close together! Just be sure to check him out close up and when buying a horse I make myself be as critical as possible, almost like I'm judging someone else's horse! I literally try to pick the horse apart. When you do go look at him, have someone else ride him too and get a good look from both sides and front to back. If those knee's are that close together, your going to have problems down the rode!

Ya, I think he is on unlevel ground, making him look but high. Well, if I do go and check hiim out, I will definitely have a vet exam and what not done on him, because that's the only thing that worrys me about him are his knees, but they are bad pictures to. So im not sure lol

Ha, I was going to say, 'its nice to see a quarter horse with that much substance in his legs and feet' Very hard to critique those photos though, with the poor lighting, blur, and his own coloring. I think he'd be worth a real look, if its not a major trek to get to him.

Lol ya there bad pics, she is suppose to be putting a video up soon, so well see. I will definitely go look at him if duchess sells, I really like him.

Being a grey horse and blury photos don't help lol.

He's a solid horse, built a little downhill and a fairly straight shoulder and a tiny bit post legged and out behind. His gaits might be a little rough and I'd imagine his canter wouldn't be the best, but worth a look if you are looking for a quiet ranch horse. His left knee just looks funny because of the angle and blur of that one picture, if you look closely it's normal.
And hun, you ain't seen big until you've ridden 18hh horses :P 16.1hh is small compared! Judging from the guy's height I'd say they're fibbing slightly on his size. If you got a stick by him I'm pretty sure he'd be closer to 16.3hh.

Good luck! Good solid and quiet horses are getting fewer and farther between these days.

Lol, for barrel racing he is big, I have never rode a horse taller than 16.1 lol. I don't know she says he is 16.2, so hum. I think he looks down hill because the ground is uneven, otherwise I don't think he is built down hill, like if you look at the first link, its him in the arena you can see that he is not down hill built. But I will definitely go and look at him if duchess sells

These are just bad pics, that fo sure, I would ask for some others, but since im not serious about buying yet, I don't want to waste her time.
