Critique PLEASE!

I'm a newbie here! Little bit about myself: I have been riding since I was probably 6 yrs old. 20 now. Senior in college at University of Alabama. Since I've been in school, haven't been able to ride much...except for a summer rodeo queen pageant (which I won YEA! ) Anyways, today I have decided that I absolutely cannot stand to not have a horse ANYMORE! So, I am visiting a boarding barn on Friday morning (100 a month for full board with 6hrs a week of work---GREAT DEAL I think ) And hopefully, I will be looking/riding this horse on Saturday. Back when I was riding often, I was a member of several horse forums and critiques help out sometimes so I was wondering if any of you wonderful horse people could help me out on this guy. He is a QH/TB cross, registered with AQHA, 10 yrs old, has been in shows, trail rides, and has even jumped a little. Sounds too good to be true almost. But anyways, any opinions (and don't be afraid to give an honest one - i know the pics are kinda dark sorry) would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I thought of a few questions you could ask tomorrow. I'm wondering the answers myself. =)
Why are you selling?
What is he fed?
What has he been trained to do?
When was he last ridden?
Does he require supplements?
Does he require special shoeing?
Do you have his reg. papers?
How long have you had him?
Does he have any vices?
Has he had any past injuries?

Looks like a cute horse and one suitable for basic all around stuff. His neck is TINY, it almost doesn't match his body That's ok. None of em' are perfect. One of mine has an outie belly button.

No, I didn't. He was so stiff when I rode him. His gaits were all off. Sweet personality but not what I was looking for. I bought a 4 yr old QH gelding named Ronan.
