Is he a Tennessee Walker? If he was a "big lick" I'd strongly suspect major hock issues with him. A video or other pics would be helpful. I believe he would be cow-hocked pretty bad if his rear legs were together. Over-all, his head is a little coarse, but he seems to have a calm steady disposition. His neck is long and a little thin, he has decent withers, very straight through the back to the tail which is common in gaited horses. He has a long hip for a long stride, decent muscling except his hindquarters.
he is. And he was on the padded shoes when we got him, apperntly he showed at state and stuff then a lady bought him as a 7yr to use as a horse for disabled people..but I bought him 6months later. Rode hima bit...then turned him to pasture
