this is an example of a bwo legged horse behind. Toes pointing straight forward mean the leg bows at the hock.. and these CLEARLY do that. A little toe out behind means the leg can work as a spiral(like a spring, folks) as it was designed to and the stifle clears the belly.
This horse has a steepish shoulder, and a dip behind his withers.
This horse would be a nice gelding unless I saw him in person and these poor photos are way off.
BTW if you have a stallion.. a word to the wise.. NEVER post any photo of him that is not the very best.. and these are pretty bad.
Looked at the second set of photos. Thankfully he is NOT as bow legged as the first photos. He is straight in front.. but his hocks are high and his point of shoulder is low and the angle of his humerus is also low. He is OK. Not great, just OK. That to me says "snip snip" unless he has done something really good.. like won money as a top cutting horse etc. etc.
