I feel that the horses front legs will disable him from placing as high as needed to be a halter horse.

He looks very uncomfortable.
His feet need a lot of work, and sorry for asking,
but I, as a foreigner, I do not understand why are halter horses bred differently?

I dont understand why that would be appealing.. Didnt halter start out with performance horses.... who had the best conformation and was also able to perform the tasks they were bred for??

What is the point of creating useless horses?

Not all halter horses are useless - only some of them. Check out the PERFORMANCE record of Impressive's get some time.

I'm not at all a halter person, but here is an example of what, in my opinion, a halter horse should be - correct and muscular, but not grotesque. Some of you probably know the owner, a super nice guy, from other forums...
