I think he's APHA?

Not great at critique, and there aren't many squared up pictures. But I do like his head, very pretty with big wide eyes.

Overall, I really like him. Nice petite QH head and huge hip with a broad chest. His legs are nice and straight and he looks to have good feet (from what I can tell). If you are looking at him seriously, I would ask to have him tested for HYPP during the PPE. The fact that he has Impressive in his bloodlines makes that a possibility. If he is negative though, I would go for it. He is a stunning colt.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Very cute little thing. And $1200 doesn't look bad at all to me (I consider he has basic ground skills like leading, brushing, farrier). I'm not so sure he still has to stay as stud, but he'll be show stopper gelding for sure in ring.

I still would get him tested by my vet cause how often do sellers lie on an ad?

he's very nice, very well built. I read he was shown Western Pleasure, does this mean he is broke to ride? If so $1200 is great for that color an build. Absolutely a cutie =]

I think they meant (show prospect) and just put too many parentheses in there. LOL. That is a mite confusing though.

I think he's overpriced. Are you in Canada? If so, it'd cost more to get him over the border, wouldn't it? I'm not sure about those legs and I don't particularly care for the neck.

Are you absolutely sure you wanna mess with my carrots?
