critique this horses gait

im not interested in buying this horse, but im trying to learn more about gaits right and wrong.

Please go to the youtube link and watch this gelding gait. Im seeing something different in the front end. Is this particular style good or bad in a walker. Thanks

Rain our 7yo TWH bless her heart almost went to these people but I bought her because I about cried when I found out who was going to buy her if I didnt. They say they rescue horses but they turn and burn them. They hungry, starving, on dry lots. Not regular care its horrible. They live only a half hour from me and they have different horses on craigslist every week. Its horrible. That boy is a horrbile rider and they just don't need to own horses. Im attaching a pic of our girl that almost went there. They buy and sell walkers. And well....idk I don't like them.

The horse is lame on the left front. He has probably been lame for the last 6 months. Same story with every other horse they have. If they arent lame they have URI

My first thought was, "Oh wow, he's lame." I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who noticed this.

I caught a glimpse of a running walk at the beginning, but mostly I see step pacing and some racking.

Sorry to hear this horse is not in a good place :(
