Natisha is spot on. Call the seller, explain your concerns and tell her you would like to recheck in say two weeks, and see what they say, or just ask for a 30 day trial, and right to return him for full refund if he doesnt come sound.
That said, many newly trimmed horses(or even just flat soled horses) will be ouchy on rocks. I don't know that lameness on rocks is a good indicator of a problem, especially on a horse the vet beleives is improperly trimmed.
I once went to sell an amazing mare that had flat feet. I had done 25 mile competitions on her and she was always sound. The vet doing the PPE asked her to be trotted out on gravel strewn pavement, and then declared her lame on three legs.
