If he's had the horse for a few years and is in that condition, I don't think I would completely trust his word. I certainly wouldn't trade a well conditioned horse for him AND give him money - but that's just me.
It's the little things I hear you say. Things like: he wants to run, he's fast but can be handled, he loves to run in the pasture, he (the seller) wants a slower horse for his mother... things like that. When the horse is in condition, he may just be a handful. In any case I would certainly talk to his vet and I would want his teeth checked because I would bet the ranch it's not been done while he owned him.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
