Confo Critique Please and Thanks!

I am no good at spotting confirmation flaws (working on it!) and am really interested in this guy. I don't know if he's even still available, but I'd love to have some opinions and critiques on his confo. to help educate myself!

he looks good, his butt is sloping a bit......but im not sure if it is fine or not. i cant see to well but im not sure if his toes go in or not, that can be a major problem if they do and you want him to be a jumper. but his back feet are fine, his toes go out a bit but that is fine, they do that on a lot of horses. but toe in can be a big prob. if you want to get him do x rays. :) but he looks good all round and i think he is adorable!

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

The only major flaws I could find are that he is a little straight through the shoulder, short and thick through the neck and he appears to have weak feet. But what are you going to do with him? He's not going to be the next champion HUS horse with that shoulder but he could be a decent riding horse and his hips look like he'd be a decent jumper. How much is he and how much training does he have on him?

Thanks for the replies! I am naturally drawn to grays, so I think he's lovely!
He is 6 years old, right at 16 hands, and is off the track. He has a good pedigree and I was planning on buying him as a second horse and companion for my Connemara x.
I would eventually like to either event with him or do some local jumpers classes. Nothing fancy.
They are asking $1750 for him and he's at a farm away from the track but that's all I know for now. His pedigree is below:

I'm also going to put a link below for the other two that caught my eye. Feel free to look at those too and let me know what you guys think!

Thanks again!
