I am going to say this little filly is either coon footed or simply needs better trimming and he heels balanced properly. She looks out of balance to me. Hard to tell without better pictures but that is what it looks like from here at this point.

i dont really see a club foot. when you look at the angle from the pastern down she is not vertical in the hoofs. I think with proper farrier she should be okay for riding, not jumping or barrels or cow work, western pleasure , trails..

Not a stupid question at all. Basically a coon foot is where there is way too much angle in the pastern. There is a much more technical explanation for what causes it and all that, but that's the basic of it.

Sometimes, it's a conformational thing and there is nothing to worry about. Other times, it's caused by something called DSLD, which is a degenerative ligament disease. Only a qualified vet can say for certain what the cause might be.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

I dont see club feet either but she sure small for 2 years old. Those front legs are awful fine boned for my taste. Had a filly with real fine boned legs didnt keep her figured she wouldnt hold up to our way of riding. Looks like she just need a good trim. She is real cute though.
