I keep coming back to this one - I have a feeling that once he's shined and muscled up he'll be a stunner. Especially for those of us that like the big guys :)

Pretty sure he's standing funny in this photo. Any glaring conformational flaws that you see? Working on my eye!

I know it's secondary, but I like his name as well.

He seems to have a bit of a short back, and his croup is quite pointed then slopes downwards a bit. There is also something on his back left leg right below the hock... Does anyone else see it? Or am I just being too nit picky? I wish his front legs weren't so far back beneath him, it makes it hard to tell if they are truly straight.

But I agree I think he'll be a nice looking horse once he's got some muscle and shine :) He's a cutie pie!! And he looks like he has a kind eye.

I love him and I love his conformation, nice and short coupled and it looks like he has pretty clean legs. If he's raced this long and is still sound he'll likely stay sound. I bought a 9 year old two years ago at Finger Lakes and my guy is sound and a wonderful character to have in my barn. I think you should go meet this guy and take your trailer with you.

I wish I could, SEPowell! I love the old campaigners. Unfortunately I'm on a 2.5 year financial plan before I can get another one... But I hope someone else snaps him up!

evans, one of my volunteers took that listing and she said he is a super cute horse who moves out really nice! I personally LOVE how he is put together.
