He's nice, I don't care for his feet at all, and I agree more mane would be nice, and a prettier head. It really doesn't matter what I think (or anyone else here, what matters is what you want). If he's really what you are looking for, I hope you can work something out! There is nothing wrong w/ making an offer, they'll either take it or they won't! To me it seems abit steep for this market, but people can ask what the want, and it really comes down to if he's worth it to you!
I don't really think 3 hours is all the far, I figure anything within 4 hours is good! It'd be nice if the perfect one was just next door, but it rarely is and I'm to picky to let alittle distance bother me. I felt super lucky to find my current horse (my dream horse) just about an hour away!
