I don't believe that splayed pasterns would make him clip himself, but rather have a bit of a circular motion when extending his front legs. This, in turn, will create more work for his shoulders and throw him off a bit. As long as you do a good PPE and watch his weight though, I'm sure he'll be fine. What are you wanting to use him for? I'd personally turn him down if you're wanting to do any sort of high-strain work such as jumping, but if you're wanting a trail mount his legs should be fine, with the exception of maybe some artheritis as he gets older.
Not sure how you could decide whether a horse is good or not in five minutes, but if she's an expert, I'll take her word for it =] he looks like a sweet boy.
