Gaskins/Second thighs.

Hi Guys,
I have a question about gaskins or second thighs in horses.
I've been told my new horse has a weak second thigh (apparently typical of an Irish Draught) (?) and I'm wondering if this will affect his jumping ability, or eventing career?
Picture of him, if needed:

Isn't that the same horse you posted before? The one who was sold? HOW AWESOME!!! Fill us in on that!

His gaskins are pretty puny, but is he not young, as in 4?

I like this horse. I don't think he will have issues jumping. What are your plans in that venue? If you are looking Grand Prix international circuit.. well maybe not.. but ya never know.

He will be fine.

How many physically imperfect people do we know who succeed at athletic things? I think he will do what you need.
