Oh, and...there is one thing about his hooves you might want to research. The angle of the pastern doesn't "match" the first inch or so of his hoof growth (right below the coronet). There is no shortage of info on this aspect of a healthy hoof, but it will take some "thought" after you understand what the "optimum" is, the exceptions, etc.,. An expert could tell you how to approach/apply/achieve it to his individual "self". It may be fine...and it is just the pictures, but it sure "appears" out of alignment. Either way, I always take things methodically and slow.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
