Agree with all of the above. He might add another inch but he'll definitely fill out. Once he is wider he'll take care of your long legs

I'd do a PPE, absolutely.
He looks very sweet and doesn't seem to have been treated rough, but i don't like the shank bit and neck reining at all. He seems to be a horse who learns fast and offers much. Easy to be taken advantage of

I'm going to see him on Thursday. I guess someone's going to be looking at him on Friday, too. :(

Could be true, could be said just to pressure you.
Look at him, take a knowledgeable friend with you (4 eyes see more than 2), and if you really like him tell them you'll take him provided there are no issues coming up with the PPE.

I had that thought as well. Well, first I thought, "HEY! Speed Racer said she wasn't going to fight me for him!" LOL. Then I thought, "Hmm.. slightly odd that the horse has been on the market long enough to drop the price by $400, yet now when I make an appt to come see him, someone else is is interested?

I guess I need to know how to arrange a PPE. I don't know ANY vets in the area, as I'll be driving 4.5 hours to see this horse. Do I just use their vet? Google ahead of time and find a vet with good recommendations?

Don't use their vet. At best, it's a conflict of interest for the vet. At worst, they could pass the horse because the seller is their client.

I done told you already, I wants a black & white pinto, not a bay one!

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

It looks like there may only be ONE large animal vet within an hour of this place.

Hmm... maybe my vet wants to go on a really, really long road trip?

Wow Nikelodeon I like him.
IDK if he'll grow or not, did you ask how tall his parents are? That Arab blood makes it tricky without knowing. He looks taller than that already, so here's to hoping! What a sweet acting boy for just a 3 year old!

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

I really like him, too! I figured it's worth the drive to check him out, at least!

In the middle of nowhere

I'd go and look at him, if you like him, schedule an appointment with the vet. Right then and there. Depending on what price range he's in, you have to decide what you want done.
