This I understand, I know the 4th leg is not really a white stocking but it appears to be at the moment. I thought I made that clear in both of my other two post but I guess my wording was misunderstood.
I only posted the pictures to show one of the posters how much a horse can change over the course of time, not to argue about if it is or is not a permanent marking, thank you for pointing this out for those that did not know, but I am fully aware of what he will look like over time.
