    Do you have a picture of him with his front legs square?

    He looks like a really kind hearted little guy. His legs are gross (probably because of the lack of a real farrier); he needs a big dose of wormer and some groceries.
    Personally, I'd get a vet to OK his digestion system to make sure it hasn't been too worm damaged. And you can't really tell anything about a horse until he's 3 anyways.
    Because of his situation I wouldn't get on his back until he's 4 or 5 just to be sure that his joints and bones are all well developed and strong enough to carry a rider.

    Also keep in mind that with some proper health care and good feed his personality could do a 180 into the crazy horse direction. He looks like a sweetheart though.

    He does need to put on a lot of weight and no doubt could use some worming, he has a sweet face. Poor guy needs some TLC!

    Hes been wormed in the last 3 months twice, atm he has a huge ballon belly.

    Well looking oddly, he is kinda plain.

    I personally would pass him over. I have serious doubts that this horse will stay sound.

    Very bad front leg conformation in too many areas (without taking into consideration the "trimming" he received).

    First things first, if you do decide to get him I would just work on getting his weight back on. The pictures don't show him in very good poses to judge on weather he has bad legs yet or not. To me, from these pics, his legs look OK. They're not great, but they're not completely horrible either. He's still growing, so he might look a lot better in another year or so. His neck is what catches my eye. Looks like he might just need a ton more muscle. If you've wormed him a few times already, and his stomach is still that big then... He either has some serious worm trouble or his belly was stretched from it in the first place. This will probably take a while to go down. Don't give up on him! He might just need a little TLC, and he may just be the perfect horse.

    He has beautiful eyes. Prior neglet horses make great companions when you can prove to them you an be trusted, so if you're using him for fun I think he might do well. I'd watch the feet as he grows and get someone experienced in nutrition to help balance out his feed to help correct the prior malnutrition. It may take supplements to make up for it. He shouldn't stop growing until he's four, and with the weight problems, you may be smart not to put an adult on him till 3 1/2 or 4. But you can ground train a horse to ride before that, even use a saddle and light weights after 1 1/2 years if you are careful. That might help you bond with him, and make saddle training less stressful. Coming from a rescue stable, I shy from the term breaking to ride. What you really want is to train. But I don't see anything in him that would stop him from any of that. He'll see-saw in height till he's done growing, but he could definitely use some stretches and excersize to build muscle.

    He's awfully skinny and those knees give me the shivers. I'd wonder about his long term soundness.
