Yeah, unfortunately I am going to have to agree about the club foot, I've seen worse but it's more than just slight. Also, it almost looks like he's pigeon-toed. However, I have seen a good farrier perform miracles on club feet. They have to be done every 4 wks or so for a while, but I have seen slightly clubbed feet pretty much corrected with good shoeing. Talk to your farrier to see what they say, and talk to the owner to see if they will come down on the price. Use the fact that you will have to have him trimmed/shod so often to bring it down. If they won't budge, I would pass on him.

I still wouldnt buy him if they offered him to me for free.

Poperly caring for that club foot is going to take $.

OP-get a sound horse you can enjoy :)

Yeah pass. Honestly i've never spent more than 450$ for a horse. And I just got a great well trained TB for FREE and all he needs is a little weight and muscle and he's good to go. Definitely pass and find soemthing more in your price range and something that it's going to need less money to fix up.

He doesn't look like anything special. Especially for the price.

If you don't mind me asking...what is club foot? His feet look a bit weird to me, but I don't know what I'm looking for.

While it seems that you have taken the good advice from the other posters, here is a link to your local (?) rescue center. They have some really nice horses and adopting beats buying any day! L.A. County Animal Care Control: Lancaster

Club foot is where the horses hoof grows straighter than normal.
