I'm going to step up and suggest that you pass on this horse. The horse in the picture is not the same horse as a 3 year old. Horses may vary in shades as they grow but a horse doesn't loose the white sox or does his feet change color as he grows. I would avoid this seller at all costs because if she is not telling you the truth about that, I would not believe anything she said.
Secondly, unless you have a great deal of experience (which I am getting the impression that you don't), I would avoid a 3 year old horse no matter how nice he seems to you. You are already starting off with a horse that is barn sour and that is going to take knowledgeable horseman or a trainer.
Look for a horse that is 10 - 15 years old that will teach you rather then the romantic idea of learning together.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
