POSSIBLE BUY : ANY CRITIQUE? paint gelding

Well, this is a horse that might be a possible buy for me. Saturday I am going to ride him. He is about 13 or 14 years old. I've seen him before at the fairgrounds. I took this picture today when I talked to his owner, Mr. Naegly who recently had back surgery and can't ride. I fell in love with his color and his personality from what I've seen of him. I don't want to sound head over heels but is this my opportunity???



Any critique or advice would be great!

I think he might be a bit swaybacked. But, if he is about thirteen, he may be a good, mellow boy -- hope that doesn't come back to bite me! Be sure to give us an update, okay! I'm not sure what "Tovero" is.. more research!

i can hardly see HIM.

But i do know this much from experience.
it is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to keep an all white horse clean. they'll lay down in their stall and have yellow-green stains that just WON'T come out [without some SERIOUS elbow grease]

You can tell a gelding, you can ask a mare, but you must discuss it with a stallion.
