Hmm... has halter on? Screams "you are 10% more likely to catch him than the other horse, but still gonna have to work at it" to me.
And the 17 hand tall 7 year old, hmm "we have kids thats how I know he's good with them", well exactly what do you mean by good. He's seen them, and doesn't care, or you've actually had them on him, and he's been fine? Runs like a charm, hmm...why would I want a horse that runs like a charm. Maybe if he jumped like a charm, or did trails like a charm, or did barrels like a charm, but just plain "runs like a charm" sounds more like all he likes to do is run.
