Wow! I like him even more in this pic! Handsome guy! I don't see sickle hocks here. You need to have his back feet square, and if you were to draw a straight line from the point of his butt to the ground, a sickle hocked horse would deviate forward from the hock...like a sickle. Ideally the back of the lower leg would be right even with the imaginary line. That's the best way I can explain it. A and B are correct limb conformation. C is sickle hocked.

No, that's just normal for him. People worry WAY too much about a horse being slightly butt high, but really it's not a big deal and doesn't hurt him or his usefulness in any way shape or form. I've noticed MOST foundation bred QH's are slightly butt high, actually.
Now, if he were so high in the butt that it looked like he was going to tip over onto his nose at any second, or like he was constantly standing on the side of a sheer cliff, then that might be a problem! LOL!
Honestly, though, your boy is one FINE lookin' dude!

He's a good looking horse & I think the size is just right. Hope he is sound for you. Looks like a great clip job, also.

Yeah he is only 14.3 hands but I tend to stay with the shorter horses, hope he is too, put shoes on him and he seems to be getting better but still acts choppy and gimpy sometimes to me, started him on an MSM supplement & glucosamine also hoping that helps, another question what different types of things can the vet do to determine where the lameness is coming from? Also some of the prices your vet charges for these different test and things??
