He's pretty young. ;) But looks nice. Although I'd like to see more shots.

Ride more, worry less.

There is his other ad.

He looks really downhill in the first pictures and then pretty even (if not slightly uphill) in the second one, so I don't know what going on there, different angles? I also don't like his shoulders and has upright pasterns. Although I love his head and his color. I think he is gorgeous.

Wow, could that training fork be any shorter?? Goodness! Can't critique from that first ad, but from the pictures/ad that Supermane pulled:
First picture:
Downhill! Not a great shoulder angle, steep croup. Nice short back, shortish neck.
Second picture: Lots of white around the eye which I am not a fan of; a horse should have a nice soft eye - I realize he's a paint, but it's just my personal opinion. At warmblood stallion gradings they will mark a stallion down if they have white around the eye, it indicates that the horse is a little crazy - and I believe it.
Anyways, he's pretty, and eye-catching, but nothing I'm jumping up and down about.
He is incentive-fund enrolled, so that might be a good point?

Wow, he is definitely downhill.
He looks pretty. I like his eyes.

They want way too much for him. I have seen better bred horses go for less. And he doesn't have that much training on him, so he's definitely not worth what they're asking.
What would you want to do with him?

Personally I don't like him. He's very downhill and somewhat I don't like about his face (may be that blue eye which looks almost white). Also he's very overpriced.

IMO and by all means I am not a good judge... I don't care for him.

There seems to be something about him that I am not a fan of. Yet I can't put my finger on it. It may be the way his coloring or pattern disrupts his natural lines or maybe the fact that he is a bit downhill. When I look at him I don't go WOW... Beautiful Horse. Its just more like. oh... nice horse. I think he is a bit pricey for what he is and his age vs. training.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
