Needs a trim. It's a wry foot, and is overgrown, and will bruise the sole. It's a sign of neglect if it's really curled far under itself. I have only personally seen this in person when the horse was foundered badly and long neglected, hard to fix sometimes, but should still be a usable animal if trimmed up, kept that way, and diet/exercise are addressed.
