Horses are often lazy, but dragging feet is a physical problem, not laziness. Could be as simple as a trim problem - farrier not doing a balanced job & toes too long for eg. Or could be a number of other possibilities.
hind legs are faceing outwards when he is on the crossties. My mom said he has done that for a while before we started jumping...
As others have said, it could be innately conformational - cow hocked or such. Also horses are naturally built slightly 'outsy'(the technical term!) in back compared to fronts. But it could also be due to trimming or some other prob. I caught above that you said "has done that for a while", which indicates maybe he hasn't always done it??
