    Thanks L2L, yep he does have a slightly roached back. Seems to be a common thing in stb - surprisingly many of them seem to lessen when they stop pacing and learn to work 'correctly'.

    The third pic is how his legs usually are, he's definitely standing camped out in both directions in that pic haha but I thought it might be easier to see other stuff than in the photo of him with a rider.

    Thanks for your input L2L :)

    I still think he is a great horse and a gorgeous color to boot. Have you thought about maybe having an equine chiro come out and look at his back? I have a 4yo filly and she was out in the same place and had a bump there and a chiro came out and did an adjustment and right after it was almost completely gone. Just a thought.

    He has had a good local chiro come out a few times before - first when he was first broken in, then about 2 months broken, and then a third time a month or so after that. He was sore in all the places to expect after being broken to saddle (back, slightly hamstrings, shoulders) but the third time he came out he gave no pain response or tightness in the muscles so I think it might be a time thing. He is the sort of horse that lets you know if he is sore (very much a wuss)

    I love his colour.. but I want him to hurry up and go proper dapple grey :P
