I agree...the last picture in particular is disturbing as her left rear is behind the right rear and the hip is still higher on the left, so I don't see it as a matter of posture. A locked left stifle could be causing it, but I can't tell from the pictures if it is locked...

deanw186, I would be interested in finding out more about your mare. Such as is she sound and able to be ridden?

The reason I ask is my colt also has this issue. He was born with a warped cannon bone and so he has one hind leg shorter than the other. He is almost 17 months old and right now is sound, but I worry about his future. I would say his hips are unbalanced by about 2 inches.

Yep, dropped hip... try getting her to stand square for her conformation shots... she looks to be kind in the eyes...
