Looks a lot better than standing in two foot of their own manure in a 10 X 10 stall. If they are in good condition and taken care of, who cares?
Horses that are raised outside in different conditions learn to handle themselves well. Much like turning young horses out on a mountain to get sure footed. And if you have ever taken a stall raised horse to the desert, they spend more time trying to figure out how to jump sage brush then running through it like desert raised horses.
Horses are a product of their upbringing..they are probably fairly tough or at least know enough not to step into a rusted pickup bed.
