I'll also try and get him more squared up for shots of his front legs. That's a little worrisome re: his legs not being straight. Would that make him more succeptable to injuries, or just less suited to certain disciplines?
He does have high withers, bareback will be interesting.
Haha, he might be offended if your taking shots of his booty
I've never had issues with any horses that toe-out. And in the cases that I've seen where it does affect their performance, its WAY worse than his.
I really wouldn't worry about it too much. All horses are going to have flaws, no horse is perfect. :)
The other leg, if he is indeed a little crooked from the knee down, it really all depends. I really can't get a good judgment on it because I don't know if its how he's standing. Some horses just stand with their legs funny sometimes. Its another one of those that could bother them, or it may not, it all depends on how severe it is. If he IS a little crooked, it doesn't look like anything major (going by this shot). Again, I've seen horses with MUCH worse.
