    OK, so you can't cure the neck. But he's tall and lean, he's got a nice coat (it seems from the photo) and he has a kind eye. He's a good looking color and has a presence in that photo. With some muscle and some groceries, he would make a good project horse. I think for a horse that's free, he's looks good... So long as he vets out that way. Also depends on what you'd like to train him to do. If you're thinking jumping and reselling, he may make some kid riding Novice or in the Limit very happy, for example, ya know?

    This horse's neck is ewed, period. It will always be a ewe neck. It can be made to look better with proper muscling but it will always be a ewe neck.

    There are horses who only look like they have a ewe neck because of improper conditioning. This horse is not one of those.

    I totally agree with this.
    No reason to not look further into this horse, just keep in mind the faults and be sure to not make any decisions with out a good PPE.
    I can't bold the last paragraph, but that's a great note, Always. I just like to remind people that free doesn't always equal good. Please do go in cautious and fully aware of faults, and please please please get a PPE - especially focus on the leg joints. Get xrays if a vet is even a tad iffy and you still want him.

    If he was an "ugly" color, would you still want to see him? I try to do that myself if a gorgeous colored horse catches my eye - that makes my mind think more objectively.
