Question Conformation question.

Alright, by no means do I intend on doing this, I just want to satisfy my curiosity.

If you take a mare, who toes out in the back & front, SEVERELY, and breed her with a stallion that toes in a lot.. Would the foal have a high possibility of having well-conformed legs?? Lol, I guess it has a chance, but not a high percentage? They would be more likely to either toe in or out, rather than having nice, straight legs??

Just wondering.

When breeding, you should look for a stallion that HAS nice, straight legs. The opposite of the extreme won't do you any good, it's not like averaging things out in math. Hope that helps!

Agreed, if you bred a mare that toed out severely and a stallion that toed in severely, you would likely end up with a foal with completely jacked up legs. It's best to find 2 horses with nice straight legs and pair them.
