You can't ride papers.
I like him more in the video than I do the pictures. I'm sure it's the "post-legged" look but he looks uncomfortable in the rear in the pictures.
I bought a grade mare a long time ago for $4k - Best mare I ever had.
Worth it really is only a question you can answer. We can tell you that we feel he isn't worth that price, but what is he worth to you? Sometimes the horses that suit us best aren't the cheapest, but certainly worth their weight in gold.
I bought Fiona for $5k from Missouri, unregistered (but I have papers to finish) where she would've been worth $10k on my side of the US. It's all in the region too. Texas I'm sure can be a dime a dozen and for cheaper. The palomino is priced better for a state such as VA, MD, or NY, etc. I think he is steep for a TX horse.
But I see you've moved on anyhow :) Good luck!!
