He is not "horrible sickle hocked." In order to tell if a horse is sickle hocked the hocks have to be lined up with the point of the butt. If they are not they are not standing square it can give an appearance of being sickle hocked.

This. There isn't one photo that can give you an accurate display of his conformation, they're all awkward photos that make him look funnier then he is I think.

Pinto - the OP states that they are looking at the horse as a possible purchase with gelding...

Sickle hocks are a conformation fault seen when viewing the hind legs from the side:

The hocks are severely angled from the point of the hock to the fetlock. The horse appears to stand under from the hock down. Subjects horse to strain in hocks - causes curb, throughpin, and bog spavin with a tendency to interfere at the trot. They are often cow-hocked, making for a severe hind leg deficit.

I'd say this horse was sickle hocked

That and his appalling feet would render him a horse I'd not want to own

You're missing the point entirely - this horse is deliberately standing "under himself". His hocks are not lined up to his butt, which gives the impression of being sickle hocked. You should see a straight line from the point of buttocks to the point of hock, and then they would slope forward from there.

The fact that his hocks are so far forward make it blatantly obvious he's just standing like a knob.

This is a sickle hocked horse:

Thank you MM.

I think it is honestly unfair to judge the confo of a horse that is not set up properly.

Throttle is just another term for throat latch. It's sometimes considered more proper, and sometimes it's not... Just another term...
