Base narrow (his hooves are too close together...his legs should come straight down, not angle together)

Tied in behind the knee

Probably over at the knee (they usually are)

Straight behind

Stifle joint is set way high

Upright pasterns

Light on bone

Just yuck and a half!!

He's very post legged in the hind. The one thing that stood out to me were his feet. Good god look at the heel on his front hooves @.@ I don't know if he's club footed or has a horrible farrier, but that just makes me cringe. I bet you that is what is causing most of his upright Pasterns in the front.

It's perpetually breeding halter lines with halter lines that carry on the characteristics of being straight everywhere....from straight in the back to straight in the front.

And I would want to see the HYPP status on that one given the positive status of the horses in his pedigree.

his legs look like tooth picks holding up a pork sausage.

IMO those hooves need some major work, I think they are definitely affecting the way he stands.

He's still straight everywhere even if he had some foot trimmed off. This is your standard halter horse that I see on my AQHA circuit. And he's actually "pretty tame" muscle-wise from horses I've shown against. They are not bred to peform....only to stand there.
