I have watched it twice. I think he is ambling. This means the right back foot and the right front foot go forward at the same time, same then with left feet. Easier to se if filmed f rom the side. This is a very easy way for animals to walk. Horses do it when they get tired. Has he put weight on recently? How does he move when he is going a bit faster - really trotting instead of walking.
Walking like this makes their rib cage sway.
Some one else may see something else as I am not completely sure.
