The pasterns aren't overly concerning to me, they are long, but so are Riley's and I've had him 5 years in solid work and have never had a lameness issue at all. Like Klassic Superstar suggested, if it concerns you a joint supplement of some sort wouldn't hurt.
He's super cute though, and I can't see anything that would turn me off buying him, especially not for such a steal! My only concern is in the front on photo, you can see his near front seems to bend in slightly at the fetlock. It could just be the photo angle but if it does you would have to make sure your farrier didn't trim the insides too short.
I'd definitely suggest a pre-purchase vet check and possibly x-rays if you can afford it on his legs, just to be sure there's nothing amiss there but if he comes up clean I'd go for it!
