Is he cow hocked? (Pic heavy)

Well, I put this colt on here for a general critique before, but now I'm a little worried he's cow hocked. The problem is; sometimes (to me anyways) he looks like he is, but other times he doesn't look like he is at all. So, I'll see what you guys think.

Just a bit.

So, is it enough to have him correctively trimmed? He's 21 months, anyways, I wanna show him in halter until he's old enough to break (we break at three years)

Ask your farrier, you never know.

At this point trimming to try and correct cow hocks is probably going to cause more issues than it fixes. IF you were trying to trim to help that it should have been started at six months old if not sooner. At this point trimming his feet isn't really going to change his conformation.

Well, I just got him about a month ago, and the trim we did, I'm pretty sure, was the first time his feet were ever touched. But, I also sent these pictures to our farrier, and she said he's not cow hocked at all so that's good :)

Only a little bit. He's soo cute.

I just want to say he is adorable.

Thanks :) and thanks Waresbear; for whatever reason I didn't even think of emailing our farrier straight off. I feel so much better not worrying about it .

You were thinking of doing breed show halter? Maybe you could do some showmanship where confo isn't a big issue and personally I think better discipline for handler & horse. Sorry, just a suggestion....
