I was curious and looked the horse up. He is 14 years old. Poor guy needs some groceries.
He was owned by someone in Marlin years ago.

to have great blood lines on top and bottom it is hard for me to believe the horse on craigslist is related to 4 of the best studs in QH history

That's actually a pretty impressive set of papers on that horse. I son of peppy sand badger was actually alve and well here in the county I live in, untill last spring. He had never stood at stud, and not really ever been asked to do much. He was just a pasture ornament.

And you think you can trust Craigslist why? Its easy to fake papers, so you need to do some investigating before you put the money down. I think that if this was on the level, the stud would be offered somewhere besides Craigslist. Just my humble and often wrong opinion.

Actually it is quite common for a horse like this to be offered on Craigslist. Nothing is mentioned about his training. They don't even say that he is rideable.
He is well bred, but just because a horse has good bloodlines does not mean that the horse is a good individual.
The photographs are horrible. You can't even see how he stands or what is front feet look like.
