Here's a random assortment of him trotting, standing, and with his leg cocked up and leaning on the other.

I notice it a little at the walk and trot but not as bad as the canter

I would have a vet come out and check his suspensory ligaments if you're nervous. If you don't know his lineage, DSLD may be possible-- but not to scare you or anything. I'm not a vet, just a chick on a forum. ;)
I looked DSLD up and some of the systems sould like what I've seen, I'm going to ask my vet about it when she comes next. I may also ask my farrier if he knows anything about it. He's very knowledgeable about that kind of stuff.

Sorry, I know I keep posting but another question- does anyone know of any lines of QHs that have DSLD?

Okay, now that I've seen some of him just standing... he seems to have longish, sloping pasterns that might appear more dramatic (when flexed) than other horses with shorter or upright pasterns. I had this problem with my horse and a scare with an ignorant vet (Dropped fetlocks (this is long!)) when in reality, he was just fine (it was a separate and much less dramatic issue causing him to weight his back legs differently). I received some very useful responses to that thread about healthy fetlock flexion.

What is of some concern is how different his front pasterns look as compared to his back. Do they appear different in length and slope in real life, or just in these pictures?

Again, I wouldn't panic just yet. :) See what a vet or your farrier says. By the way, your boy is very handsome!

For now I would ask your farrier to give him short a short toe/breakover, to support that joint.

Existentialpony: Thank you, you have been very helpful! Also thanks for the compliment on him- I think he's pretty handsome myself ;) I've never noticed a dramatic difference in slope of his pasterns but now that you point it out I want to go check!
