I'm not seeing just a simple baby butt-high. Something is wonky in his croup/loins. Is that what they call gooserumped?

Agreed with you there, there are a lot of Gypsy Vanners that are croup high. But this guy is beautiful, I'd take him in a heartbeat!

He might look a little sway backed, but it's hard to tell from a picture. I find things to be different in real life....My percheron-draft cross appears to have a somewhat "swayed back" but it's just his large haunches. I'm no expert either but in my opinion, Drafty-type horses tend to have big strong bums that are highly muscled, and because of this they can sometimes look swayed......

All in all, I'd say He's a beautiful looking horse. I wouldn't buy any horse without full a vet check from YOUR vet. Also ask to see any relatives who may be at the farm, and ask for a health background. This way you can see if there may be any potential health concerns with age or in the bloodline.

Good luck!

That's the bad part in buying a horse from the internet. You don't have the possibility to go and see the horse before buying it. You never know how he is looking in real life. I really love this site because they have a lot of pictures with every horse. They all seem to be well cared for and kept in great conditions. And the lady is wonderful, very helpful.

The breed is a small draft breed. His conformation is draft conformation which tends to have this exact back and coupling (it is the coupling that looks a bit odd). He is not truly goose rumped.

His back is actually very very short and his conformation is designed for pulling which is what a small draft horse does. He is a bit butt high.

I will say that his conformation is very similar to that of the Shire or Clydesdale (without the size). I like that he is not sickle hocked.. something you find in a lot of drafters.

I like him. If he does not work out, ship him here and I will let you know when I am through using him!!!

Thanks, I really hope that it will work out. We will be using him mainly for driving so he should be fine. I will know where to send him if he wouldn't like it here .
