Gipsy Vanner stallion - critique

Hello,

I have no experience with Gipsy Vanners so I don't know how to judge their conformation or aspect. My boss wants to buy a Gipsy Vanner so we almost bought this one. We will put down the first payment for him. His name is Rafael, he is from France, 3 year old stallion, 14.2 hands high and 5500 Euros. He was started under saddle, has no vices and is very calm and sweet. We will have a trainer so it's not a problem that he is not very good under saddle or that he is a stallion. He won't be gelded because in my country they are extremely rare and besides of that we won't have mares on the property.

I have no personal knowledge of this breed so can't offer much of an opinion. I will say that he seems wonderful!

Thank you. He is surely beautiful even if I don't like Gipsy Vanners to much. I am curios to see how he's personality is. I have no experience with draft breeds whatsoever. Hopefully on November we will go and take him.

He certainly looks gorgeous. GYpsy Vanners tend to be stunning.

He looks very sway-backed or maybe just croup-high? I'm not good at conformation and won't pretend to be, but his back doesn't look right to me. I suppose this could be a "he's young" thing though... Hopefully someone who knows more than myself can shed some light on that.

Hopefully he is just in an odd stage. They say that he is great quality and has great conformation. And he is also a bit high priced compared to their other horses. I don't that a high price is not an indicator of quality but I ask myself why he is so high priced. My boss chose him based only on his looks because he is not a horse person at all. He just wants a Gipsy Vanner so I try to see if he is conformationaly correct also.

I've seen that his croup is higher than his withers and somehow to sloppy but I thought that it's because his young age. I searched now on internet and Gipsies seems to have somehow a more arched back than other breed. Maybe I'm wrong so I really want other opinions.

Sorry for the double post it was to late to edit. I've searched on internet and I've seen that it's common for them to have this kind of back. I don't like it, still I don't know if it's normal or if it's a fault but certainly it's not uncommon. Still hope that it's because of his young age.
