Smile considering this horse for halter classes- what do u think?

My family is looking for another "project" horse. My grandma seems to be interested in this one. She thinks he'd make an awesome horse to show in halter, maybe train as a farm mount later on.

We are not seriously interested yet, but an opinion from you guys on him would be awesome!

I don't know if it is the way that he is standing but his front feet look a little off to me. Can't quite pinpoint in maybe pigeon toed and a little over in the knee? I'm not an expert but it just looks a little off to me. Maybe he will out grow it.

He's nice looking. I think his feet just need to be trimmed better as they seem uneven. Not necessarily the way he's built.
I don't really like his neck but he is young so he should be able to develope some muscle to give it more structure.

I don't like his neck and he is pretty butt high but he might grow out of that. I'm not big on halter but I rarely see one that is downhill . His feet look flared out or pigeon toed. I can't tell but he needs to be pretty straight on if you want to be tough in a halter class. Along with his hind. He would be a pretty farm mount, not sure as a halter horse. Many people automatically think halter bloodlines / cool markings/colors equal halter champions .. When halter is very much on conformation.
Just get him look him over ! ... Just remember that any and every horse can be shown in an open halter class .. But winning is a different ball game !

Because he is young she is hoping he will grow out of most of that. We think that the pigon toe may be from the way his feet are trimmed, because it only loooks slight in the pics. And his neck can be built on. He would only be a halter horse sometimes... just a project for us because business is slow. We also are looking at some others. Oh and just so you know we are not just looking online, there is little you can tell about a horse online, we've already been out to see him.

His hocks appear to be set behind his hip. A stick held along the back of his leg from fetlock to hock to hip should be in a straight line when viewed both from the side and behind. He's a nice looking colt but not top halter material.

Oh he won't be heading for a top halter class trust me, we live on a ranch almost in the middle of no where these halter classes will be an in town fun kind of thing :P other then that do you guys think he'd make a goof riding, ranch work horse?

If you are looking for a beautiful halter bred horse I know of a filly in p.g who is already being shown, they want 5 times that price but I think they may be able to budge a bit.

I think he's cute. Like others said, he isn't really top class halter material but he would likely do well at smaller shows. He would probably make a nice riding horse as well. There are some small things about his conformation that aren't ideal (looks like a slight ewe neck and looks like he toes out just a touch on the front, and looks fairly fine boned but he is just a yearling), but I don't see much that is drastic that you would really need to worry about in regards to soundness or longevity.
