He is a fine looking animal, front pasterns are a little upright, but I think that's just how he's standing... How old is he

Tied in at the knee. What do his dam and sire look like?

The tendons narrow at the knee and it is a conformation flaw plus a serious weakness (IMO).

When looking at babies, this saying comes to mind: "Tops may come but bottoms never!" This means that what you see is what you get with a young horse's legs while the body structure will change quite a lot. I believe in this saying having watched a large number of baby horses grow up. .

Elana, I have to disagree. Having seen this colt in person I can tell you that as of now he is neither straight in the pasterns nor is he toed in at/below the knee.
Looking at a baby's conformation you can get a good guess at conformation at four to six month old. This is a picture of a six week old colt. He is still coming into himself coming out of mom. Just saying this having watched lots of foals grow up.

His dam is MS Great Pine, a daughter of Great Red Pine, an NRHA money and producer, and by Banjo Whiz, who shouldn't need any introduction.
