I'd buy him. He looks a little scrawny, but with some good feed and conditioning that should clear up. The slight sickle hocks behind is pretty normal in a cutting/reining horse. That breeding is versatile, cowy, and has a good mind. Train him well and treat him fairly and you'll have a partner for life. My favorite thing about the Doc Bar/Freckles horses is their ability to unwind after a loose cow/horse like lightning, then come back and walk on loose rein a minute later. The best trail/ranch horse I ever had was bred very similarly to this. Smart, sane, and versatile and she'd do anything you asked of her. Put her after a cow and she was aggressive and fast, put a child on her and she'd mosey along like an old plug going only as fast as the little one was comfortable, and she was was infallible in rough country.
