Eeh, have you had him vetted? What are you planning to do with him?

He's cute, but he sure looks like he's badly clubbed-footed on both front feet. Combine that with the calf knees and I don't foresee him staying sound for much riding.

Ya I second the club feet. Definitely have a vet look that over.

Bad feet, bad legs, I'd run away.

There is no hope of that horse ever being sound for riding...

Can you share the pictures from before the farrier trimmed him?

ETA: Either way, his left front, the white leg, is not a result of a bad trimming job. If you look at the angles of the front and back of the hoof, even if the back of the hoof were flat on the ground, the front of the hoof would still be growing at an extremely steep angle. That's a sure sign of a club and no farrier could turn a normal hoof into one that looks like that without completely crippling the horse.

Only after x-rays have been seen by a VERY knowledgeable farrier which has to guarantee he can fix that I would be thinking about buying him. Even if that's the case, prepare yourself for the possibility that he'll never be sound for serious work. Shame on the breeder, tho....
