He will look better when let down and may be a very nice horse. He needs more heel on his hind foot and he may be sickle hocked. I would put hoof testers on his front feet. He acts a little tender up front when he trots (and may be one reason why he reaches under himself behind). He is typical of a horse in racing form.. a bit wasp wasted and disproportionate.. but let down he will be much more normal in his proportions.
He is a bit light in his front cannon and he toes out a little in front. He is slightly bench knee'd with cannon offset to the outside (not enough to really call it a fault and the toe out starts up high.. so the entire leg is rotated). He is level and he has a nice, short back. Coupling looks strong and he has a nicely rounded hind quarter that will only improve when his work changes and he lets down. His hocks and knees are nice and low.
I like this horse, but do beware of his feet. He may be thin walled and he may be the sort of Thoroughbred that needs shoes to keep his feet together (I mean shoes 12 months of the year). I would go and look at him. Have a trusted farrier who understands the challenges of Thoroughbred feet look at him too.. with hoof testers.
