Wanting more eyes and opinions on him

I am in the process of trying to find a decent gelding to replace the pony mare that is taking up room as a pasture pet right now. I found this guy on CL and I just wanted to see if anyone sees any glaring issues that I am overlooking.

I don't need this horse to be anything but sound and sane. I am not looking for a prospect for performance, just a good steady buddy horse that after I spend some time finishing, I will be able to let others ride. Mainly, I need a horse to spend time in the saddle on so I am not getting too antsy about riding my filly before she matures more!

I'm sorry...I am having trouble getting past the fact that he is not for a "bigger" and has a nice rack. LOL

Really hard to tell much about the horse from this ad. Sorry!

The more I think about it, the more I want to add this one to the dumbest ad thread!

Good idea!! I just noticed that he can "rid" him and he needs a safer "hores" for his son. LO!

Not only is his grasp of the English language weak, he needs to know what it is he is looking for and how to ask for it. He wants a horse for both him and his son to ride together. From the ad, I thought he wanted something for the kid only. Oh well, no big loss. :)

Aside from the human's lack of skills - he looks like a nice horse. I think he's worth going to see.

He looks like a nice Paso Fino,he's not underweight, & the price is nice. I'd take a look & maybe saddle him, move him around, whatever you feel safe with. Does he have sores in his girth area? If, so, then no saddle for now!

I am gonna find out where he is located a little better to see if going to take a look at him is feasible. If so, I will take a saddle and a helmet and see how things go. :)
