I would suggest having a chiropractor look at him possibly or having a vets opinion of his pelvis.
Did the owners not offer any explanation of the bumps on his pelvis? If it wasn't disclosed and it's a serious issue I would probably try to contact them about it....
My gelding has a wonky pelvis as well, I won't get into detail, but long story short he was cleared by 2 different vet clinics and said he was probably born that way so it doesn't make a difference to him he's never know any different lol.
As for yours I can't really decide if his pelvis looks worse in the recent pic because of weight loss or if he was exposed to some sort of trauma.
Maybe he has arthritis or something from improper reining training or reining training at a young age...?
I would get more weight on him still and some muscle tone if possible then see how he's looking, if it's still as noticeable.
I would call his color chestnut roan with a flaxeny mane and tail. Try navy blue on him, I like navy blue on my chestnut roan mare.
Does he have a bump coming off of his left hip bone or is that just the angle of the pic?
If he does have a bump off it, he's like a combination of my mare and my gelding lol. My gelding with the wonky pelvis is a sorrel with flaxeny mane and tail, and my mare has a scar tissue build up knot around her left hip bone(from some sort of trauma prior to me getting her, she has a fractured on it), and she's chestnut roan with a big blaze ;) wonky horses unite lol. Just cause they're wonky doesn't always mean they're bad.
If he's comfortable and happy, then go for it (That's what my vets basically said about my gelding.)
