There are gaited curly horses. Some of the foundation bloodlines go back to Walkers Merry Lad. I think he was MFT and TWH, I think...
My old curly mare would gait a bit if I rode her but she is only 11 hands so my riding was real limited. She is curly in the winter and sheds out smooth except for some ringlets around the ears and on fetlocks. Sheds a good deal of her mane and tail. When she was younger there was a good deal of speculation that she was one of the lost Mckay herd.
Hate to say it but your horse doesn't look curly. My walker and app both have waves on their fetlocks in winter, so did my QH and standardbred. The curly mare has ringlets, banana curls and I could almost do an afro with them. Her mane and tail are curly too. Doesn't mean your isn't a curly, sometimes they don't inherit the curls just that it isn't likely.
