Well first off, he clearly cannot be a true quarter horse seeing as he has pinto coloring.
What I see when I look at him is a nice shoulder and decent angles throughout the hind end (although a very short croup and high tail-set when makes it look odd). Although, he has very weak, long loins which attributes to his saggy belly. When you start him in work really make him use his back to build up a strong top-line! He ties in rather low in the neck, but it is a nice length and good attachment at the withers. He is set back on his front legs which is going to put strain and concussion on his joints so really watch for and signs of discomfort of swelling, especially at the knee. He's got a nice pastern length and angle though, which is good. I just glanced at the front and hind view and didn't see anything major - but can say that he isn't cow-hocked.
Overall, he's not going to be the most athletic horse in the world, but he will certainly try his hardest and will take you where you hopefully want to go. :)
