I thought from the thumbnail that he was a mini. because he has short little stubby legs, a long abdomen and fat belly, and a massive head. HA. They need a better photographer if they want to sell him!

Well I have to say, I did enter into a sale like that, bought a bred pony years ago for the kids and the owners wanted the foal. We did agree before hand, at what age the foal was to be weaned, and they did pay for board for the foal once it was born. It worked out ok, I got to experience my first foal and they got the baby they wanted. But with this one, I don't know if I would cause, Do I really want a foal around at this time if it's not colored? Can I afford to keep an extra horse that I hadn't really planned for in my long term plans. and it is very very hard to let the foal go when it comes to weaning time. And your right lots can go wrong.
Last horse I purchased was also bred and I was given the option of keeping the foal or giving it back. And yes there was a price difference on the mare. I chose to keep the foal and pay the higher price for the mare because I didn't want to go through that again. (and heck how hard could it be to sell an appaloosa foal?) Well as usual I made the wrong choice, I paid the higher price for the mare only to find out later on that the guy never had the mare vet checked when she was first thought to be pregnant. She was, with twins, Lost them both at 9 months in. So it can go either way. When I told the previous owner about the loss of the foals, (I was hoping for the refund of the price difference, maybe, wasn't holding my breath) he did offer a free breeding back to the stallion, and it was tempting, but I really didn't want the foal anyway would have sold it so I passed.

That is odd. It'd be odd, but understandable, if someone wanted their horse to appear taller, and got on their knees to photograph at an upward angle. But what, exactly, are they hoping to accomplish with these photos? Showing off the dorsal stripe, I suppose, but usually a ground-level shot from directly behind the rump works just fine, and usually including some other shots is even better.

The first of the two I posted makes me seasick. I feel like I'm about to tumble over, and my stomach is just slightly off.

I think they were trying to call attention to the line down the horse's back, indicating it was a true dun, therefore a true grulla.

So sad that the horse is 11 years old and only has had three months of training...unless that training was several years ago and they've been riding him ever since. The ad is pretty unclear, isn't it?

Actually, it says he had three months training, but needs to be finished whatever way you want. That says to me that he's greenbroke, as a horse that had three months of training and then has been ridden for years after that would not need "finishing." I've seen a lot of unstarted or greenbroke 8-10 year olds lately for some reason.

Daughter bought a Paso Fino mare that was only started under saddle when she was nine years old. Horse was completely unmanageble. Pasos are high strung horses, and in my limited experience with them, if they are not started by a fairly young age (3-4) they are a real problem.

I'm sure that is an undeserved generalization, but that has been my experience, anyway. I don't think I'd want to touch this one - they seem to be making too much of his color.

Maybe already having a grulla makes me immune to their ads?
