He's definitely a horse that I would pass up. It appears to me that all of his hooves are clubbed to some extent. The round, straight look that they have is completely unnatural and even makes me wonder if he might of foundered (minor) at some point. Besides that his shoulder angle isn't very good, he's very butt high, his head and neck don't tie together well, he looks like he might be narrow chested, and his LS joint placement isn't very good.
Looks like his saddle isn't fitting well either. The white smudges on his withers/back are telltale signs of saddle rubbing, which creates odd pressure and can injure his back.
All of this together makes for a horse that will most likely need excessive hoof work throughout his life in order to stay sound, and it will be a lot of work to get him to really use himself properly and stay in frame.
If you want him for trails, he might be OK with proper care, but otherwise, pass him up. He's cute, but he's definitely not what I'd consider an ideal QH. In fact, he's pretty much what I wouldn't want to see in one- save for the fantastic hair and cute face xD
