I had 3 of those...all three of them extra special!
I meant the mustang

You keep going back to the pintos/paints. I'm guessing that's the color pattern you really want, if you can find a good horse that just happens to be patterned.

He's certainly a sturdy looking animal, but his shoulder's a little straighter than I like. Doesn't mean he's a bad horse, just that his stride will be shorter and not as smooth as a horse with a better shoulder angle.

I won't lie, it's my dream to own a paint... or perhaps a black or buckskin. I'd love to find an awesome horse that just happens to also be "flashy." However, color is definitely not my top priority. I think it's just that I'm not terribly well versed in proper conformation, so in just going by pictures I pick the horses that look "nice," and those are the flashy ones.

I'll have to try to get some conformation pics of my QH. He is the roughest horse I've ever ridden. His trot is positively bone jarring! A smooth trot might be nice...

This particular gelding is supposedly a "Gypsy cross" and the only red flags in the ad are "needs someone who knows what they're doing" and "buddy sour." I haven't heard back as to whether he's available... the price isn't too bad so I might take a look at him, anyway. I just need to organize all these horses I'm interested in and plan a route that takes me to see most of them in one shot. Driving 3-4 hours at a time to see horses really puts a gouge in the pocket book!
