He really doesnt look cow hocked to me, it just looked like he wasnt standing perfectly square. If anything, it looks like the back legs want to settle a little bit more under the barrel, rather than straight down (judging from the few pictures I have seen)
I think that head, neck, and barrel is AWESOME. I love his eyes and the blaze really compliments his head. I agree with Kristy, GREAT find!! =)
He's a handsome boy. What stands out most to me is how his neck ties into the rest of his body. I'd rather see a smoother transition but overall he's a good looking stud. I think the "camped under" appearance is just how he's standing. Alot of QH set up like this for show. I think he's got a very pretty face too.
Before I saw what you wrote in the bottom, I was wondering what others where saying.
This is a superb animal, big jells, large hind quarters, yes a little on the rounded side at the moment, but I am sure these where not taken in the show season.
The bottom pic, see's him a bit fitter, needs a little more muscle, and otherwise he looks good.
I have a 18 mth old filly:- sir "Waralle Wr Montana" reg, AQHA.

She is registered appy. And stunning.
I think he has a real nice look. The first pics gave him a short neck but the last picture fixed that. I love the bulldog type QH so I would take a bit more muscle on him, but he has a lot going for him. Baby doll head, very nice shoulders and a nice high hip. I also like how he carries his head.
