If price is your major consideration for buying him, I'd pass. He's an eye-catching fellow for sure, however, it's going to take a bit to retrain his bad habits and occassionally they do have relapses which require a gentle reminder. Can he be reformed? I would say so. Are you willing to have a horse that you are shelling out money for to be trained and handle when he's ready? That is a question only you can answer.
