The area where a hunter's bump would be, I'm sorry I don't know the correct name!
I like him, I wouldn't mind owning him!
I'd suggest getting some better pictures too! Posted via Mobile Device
I know the pictures werent the best, I meant to grab new ones and forgot so just used recent ones I had.
But you are correct! He is indeed pigeon toed up front. I'm not sure what the area you are talking about is called either but he does have what I assume is an old hunter's bump injury. So maybe that is adding to the weakness you see?
The other faults I believe he has: he has a long back and I believe he might be roach backed but I am still a little new to figuring out what exactly that means. I also believe he is bench kneed in the front. He has insanely high/narrow TB withers and a back that is extra hard to fit a saddle too.
But he gets me front point A to point B (and manages to mostly stay sound while doing it haha) so that's what really counts in the end, right
