He looks over at the knee to me.
Can't really tell much else with all that stuff on.

Perhaps ask for conformation pictures?
:]

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

I agree, also looks like his front toes are to long, that is just trimming though.

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

his front legs do look strange to me.. though it could be the pictures but i dont think so.

With a draft, you'll need different tack, make sure your farrier does drafts too. And they will generally eat more than a light breed, so depending on your boarding contract you might pay more.

I would get a trainer to go out there with you, and look him over.

Is he close by to you?
