Its not wobble its a twist, he had his shoes don't last week so I couldnt think theres anything wrong with his feet. I'll get some pictures on here soon of his legs because I have a feeling its just conformation. If not I will get the vet out to take a look :)

If he's gotten worse since his shoeing, or done it ever since you have used this farrier, then it very well could be his foot. Also, farriers don't always keep thier methods 100% perfect every time. He could have done something a bit different the last couple of shoe'ings.

Heres the pictures of his back legs. Opinions? He's still walking like it.
Sorry he refused to stand square. I did try for about 20 minutes then gave up lol

He's a little cow-hocked but not too badly. However, he does turn out pretty severly in his lower legs on both of his hinds. You see how he's a little turned in going down to the hocks (but not that badly) and after the hocks he turns out more? It seems to be the worst after the fetlocks and more so on the right side. I don't think that would cause the problem you're experiencing, but I wouldn't be surprised if he has an arthritis issue (maybe long term caused by the conformation) that has started to act up and is now causing the difference.

As an equine massage therapist I would recommend having a massage therapist out as this may be a muscle problem in the sacral-pelvis joint. I have worked on horses that did the twisty leg walk and it was that problem. Arthritis may be a factor but he would probably be hurting if that was the case. Trying the Adequan and a massage definitely won't hurt and may solve the problem!
