Possible buy - Handsome Arab. Please critique!

This is one handsome young man. I'll post the link to the ad. I realize that they aren't the best pictures, so I guess I'm looking more for opinions that critiques.

Arab Gelding

What does everyone think? I've already contacted the owner and I'm going to call and set up a day to come and see him.

In that last picture, his neck looks really goofy, lol. I'm sure it's the angle. He is really cute though. =]

Registered? $400?

I think he's worth a look.

I'd say go look at him. He looks like he could be a sweetheart for the right person. =)

I like he's a cutie!

Adding more pictures I just got. These may help critique conformation a bit. *Not me on the horse.*

Def worth a look, suspect the issues may be a little deeper than they let on, otherwise why are they getting rid of him? But could be the rider just doesn't have the patience to deal with it. However remember he is older so doubtful he will change too dramatically, so if you can deal with buddy sourness, jigging, etc then go for it

Worth a look! He's a pretty boy! =] Let us know how it goes.

He's a pretty boy but I'd ask your trainer to go see him with you. I wonder if he's got some pretty significant behavior issues.

The ad said they would let him go on a trial basis, so you can always do that. Just set up a contract. =] I think he is REALLY cute. Being barn sour could be a pretty easy fix, and he's an Arab, it's very typical of him to "jig."
