Heyyyyy, wait a minute.

Can horses inherit a roach back? Lolol. I must sound dumb but this is a serious question!

I'm looking at the website for Coosa, (supposedly Cowboy's grandfather) and in the little painting, he looks to have a roach back?

Maybe I'm just crazy, or does he really have a little roach going lol.

And also, here is Coosa Lad, Cowboy's sire, and Coosa's foal.

Compared to my boy..Cowboy

**Also, please do not go on rants about his roach and how it causes his pain. I have 3 threads about his roach and were closed because people started ranting. Cowboy HAS been checked out and is cleared to be ridden.**

From my understanding (someone correct me if I am wrong) roach back is an upward turn of the back before the hips. If you look on your boy there is almost an "indention" between his roach back and his actual hips.

Yeah Amp, I actually noticed that, Cowboy's back in comparison to the 2 has like an extra little hump right before their little bumps (from I guess is the hips)
