    A calf kneed horse is more susceptable to splints, ligament and tendon tears, and wear on joints. Its where the cannon bone appears to tilt forwards before jointing the pasterns, rather than traveling straight down.

    Here is a good illustration.

    i disregaurd it because I've heard everything since my first post.

    Yall bout to ban me like brittany.

    Im so tired of everyone tellin me I don't know how to take care
    Of a horse.
    I do and until you know me and the situations that I've been in don't put in your 2 cents because I don't care.

    Every single thread I've done had turned into an argument because of all you
    "helpful" people. It seems like IM the only one yall complain about constantly.
    Thanks for those maybe 3 people who ACTUALLY tried to help.

    This WILL be the LAST time I post on here.
    I hope yall are happy..now yall will never know what happens to my filly.

    I'm going to tell you for a third time, get rid of the barb wire, get a vet and farrier and make your pasture safe, and then maybe we can talk about you getting another horse. Were just trying to keep the horses in mind and have you do whats best for everyone.

    He appears to be calf kneed, butt high, and long backed just in these photos. I also see a collar on him, which means that he has atleast some history of wind sucking or cribbing- both nasty habits that are hard to correct.
    I will add a few that I can see... He has an undesireable LS placement, and long loin, I do not find he has an ideal neck nor does he carry the condition which makes me think that any of these things are an illusion from poor photo choices.

    To explain things better so it doesn't seem like everyone just wants to make you miserable.... Being downhill (butt high), means his balance is naturally on the forehand, which is opposite to what we want to see in a riding horse as it inhibits the horse's ability to round the back and lift it in order to move correctly, the LS placement is important because it is the "hinge" by which the hindquarter swings, the further forward that joint the more power the horse has and the more ability to change gears, his long loin weakens it all a bit more as the loin is a major support for the back.
    Being calf-kneed (or back at the knee) is a moderate to major leg fault, depending on the rest of the horse's conformation, the purpose the horse has, and the severity of the fault. It will cause additional wear and tear to his joints, sometimes permanent damage such as bone chips and tendon tears if he is worked incorrectly over any real period of time.

    Add the cribbing or windsucking... And you have a horse that will take a lot of knowledge and experience, time and money to get fit, keep fit, and maintain the health of.

    Overall I find he looks rather, frumpy, for lack of better description... I would pass him over without a second thought.

    You're very irresponsible and ignorant for saying that you don't care when the conditions you'd be putting your horse in is not safe. Very irrisponsibe.

    WOW.. Somebodies a little immature =/ We just want what is best for your horse. Getting another horse would just be a bad idea, we are just trying to give you advice, swearing and yelling at us really is not going to help. All it's going to do is make us worry for your horse even more.

    Big girl.. more like girl who has a BIG Attitude problem with people only trying to keep the sake of your horse/s wellbeing in mind.. I know and love a mare who was caught in a barbed wire fence (dont ask how she got in there - no idea - we don't use it) and she cut through all her tendons and is not a pasture puff (my girl :).. this is reality not a bitchy comment... think about it..

    Obviously not.. we have all seen photos and If she was my horse or anyone else's on here she would look a lot better. It would be best for you and your filly. Just sayin she's not as good lookin as she could be and you should only have to worry about one horse since you said you could afford it....
