Critique possible new eventer

My mom will be riding Molly as we recently found out she can't jump. I love her so much already but I want to do eventing, so she'll be my moms horse if I can find an eventer. Well, my mom put the word out on facebook (her only form of communication these days) that we were looking for one, and what do you know, a day later her student at Lake Erie College messaged her saying she had the perfect horse. Please no stealing! Not that most of you would, just putting it out there
Critique away!

He looks quite cute. I would definitely go see him and test him out before committing to him though. "He's out of work and needs some TLC " worries me a bit. A good friend took a look at him and said "sounds like he might be used up" -- that might explain the low, low price.
If you're interested, go see him and get a complete PPE. He's super cute from those photos, though.

Thanks for the feedback. Yea, I'm a little concerned about the low price. I'm bringing Molly's trainer, who trains off track TB's and turns them into eventers and dressage horses, to come with us so she can get a feel for and ride the horse.

And this is where I think I'm going to take eventing lessons if I buy him:

I'm with JDI, TLC sounds pretty suspicious. I really hope he looks right now same as at those pics. What a jump, btw! And I love his name - it's just so funny!

Not really good at critques but I just had to say what an awesome name for a horse :)

In all of the cross country pictures he looks really strong which worries me. When you're jumping 3' you want to focus on distance and your time not your horse taking off, getting bad distances and falling. I like riding powerful respectful horses out there, not a horse who wants to take me for a ride. That is what really worries me, I don't know your riding ability, or if your comfortable with that, and it might juust be the pictures, but before you purchase make sure you school him on a cross country course so you know how he acts in a ring and out of it. Good luck!!

SH, I'll be sure to try him on a cross country course before I buy. I've also decided to wait until the doctor says I can ride with my broken collarbone to go down and see him, which is 6 out of the 10 weeks I'm down....June 15th I can ride again minimally, July 13th it will be completely healed. Just so I can ride him before I buy, and not just my mom or trainer.
