She told you outright that she was asking 1800 and would take 1500, or is that what you offered? If she said she would take 1500, you might offer 1200. The first thing that I really noticed was the space where between his spine and hip join. The dip shouldn't be THAT prominent, and tends to go hand in hand with a high wither and a slightly longer back, so when he's on flat ground, you're going to have to assess his topline for whatever discipline you're looking to perform. A supplement of MSM/Glucosamine and a good, licensed farrier with proven corrective capabilities can help fix the spacing in the hip, and keep the joint wet.
Next, I noticed he's not too muscled up. His behind and his neck look a little on the skinny side, and you can't see his "rib meat."
Otherwise, he's a pretty little guy, and has a beautiful face, and if he cues from leg, even better!
