He toes out HARD in the back end. Real bad, surprised no one mentioned that. He may toe out in the front too, hard to tell.
His neck ties in a little low, and it does not give him a very 'english' look, even for AQHA shows so you'll have trouble if you want to be really competitive. If you want to just go to a few local shows, you should be fine.
He probably doesn't clip and they're avoiding telling you that. :)
I would, 100 percent, GET A VET CHECK.
Cheap horses are usually PROBLEM horses, either now or later on because of their conformation. If the owner takes offense, then RUN AWAY!
