What breed is he? To me he seems a little hardmouthed and is bracing against the bit, causing his whole fram to elevate in the front, and lower in the back, mostlikely causing his leg dragging.

That's good that your vet has admitted to being lazy. Have you found a new one yet?

Submit the video. The picture you posted says a million things right now

I would be interested if anyone has an educated helpful response, because we have a horse at the barn with really squared off front feet....the horse is sound....but I've never seen them quite so square before

Has you vet ruled out Kissing Spine? Think of a human with sciatic pain affecting how you walk. This occurs more often in short-backed horses.

How old is your horse? What kind of history does he/she have (ie off the show circuit, from a trail ride area). Is this a new problem? What sort of examination did the vet do?

I think Anabel meant a new vet. A vet should never look at a potential unsoundness as 'just being lazy'. I've seen lots of TWH's move like this, I don't fully understand why, perhaps something with loose tendons/muscles? I'm not a vet and have no idea. But what this picture is screaming to me is a horse saying "Yowch!" but it's hard to tell where the pain is coming from? Can you post the video?
