Critique my Radar's Lucky Star

I like doing dressage. And could handle reining. Some people say he would make a great roping horse. He hates to jump but I don't mind cause neither do I. He is a wonderful horse and he's good at learning and he can work hard for long hours if I feed him for it. Builds muscle very easily! He likes to evade every command though it makes it a challenge to ride him despite everything he's lazy which makes it hard for me to get past relaxation and suppleness into the rest of the training pyramid. I have to be very firm with him. He's very flexible. AND FAST! The only other horses I have ever rode faster than him was a TB mare in the Carribbian and and ex TB race horse from Canada.

he is slightly pigeon toed he has special trims and corrective shoes but it does not effect his performance. His right knee faces out some that's why he is pigeon toed.

non of these photos are good crit. Photos. In order to get a good accurate crit. Of this horse we would need a front back and level picture of both sides. There are various threads showing and explaining exactly how to do this.

if he does it all the time I would probably get him a once over just to make sure nothings wrong and its just that he's that relaxed.

I asked my vet about it once and he said even if there was neuro damage I couldnt fix it and he performs and shows no signs of pain. He's done this his whole life. I've known him since he was born and owned him since he was two and he's twelve now. Its very rare he stands square. The only time he does not do it as often is when he is grazing.

I can't figure out how to edit my first post but here are some nice conformation pics he's not as straight as some people would like but I know how he performs so I don't care. But I can't quite decide if he is built down hill or even and I need some other opinions.
