Because of the reasons stated, I wouldn't touch that horse with a ten foot pole for barrels or as a stallion. His legs are scary, and I thought my gelding's were bad. Your boy would make an adorable trail/pleasure gelding. Stallion quality he is not.
ETA: You say he has been cutting since he was three? He's only 9. Come back after another ten years and let me know how his legs hold up. My mare is cowhocked, and wasn't started on the pattern until she was 7. She ran once a month, five months out of the year, until she was 17, and the first few years were easy runs until we had our pattern down. She's now 20, and so stiff and arthritic(on top of an injury to her knee which makes it worse), I am contemplating having her PTS.
