I wish I could remember more about where I read about this. But the horses aren't born that way, it is a result of racing and something in their legs getting stretched or tore so the tendons pull the leg back because whatever normally keeps them straight is no longer doing so. And yes, it doesn't seem to give them trouble!
Maybe it was in Dr. Deb Bennet's conformation articles in Equus magazine?
