I'm curious about something though, the angle of her pasterns, is that normal? Do foals grow out of that? Or is it just the picture (the one before last) that makes them look odd? Not criticizing! Just wondering if anyone can clear that up for me?
It is okay, I was actually wondering the same thing! I read about it and it sounded like she was going to straighten up. She only walks weird on one of her feet, but I've seen pictures of foals who don't solidly walk on all of their feet and grow up just fine.

Thank you for clearing it up.
I was under the impression that it would get better as the days went on, but a handful of people have expressed concern about it and of course got me a bit worried. But anyone I talked to who has been around foals weren't alarmed and said the same thing.

I'm located in NE Wisconsin outside of Green Bay. Their are only about 4,000 registered Curly horses in the world. I know a couple people that have Curlies in Wisconsin, but most of them are breeders/have multiple.
