It's like being knocked kneed in a human. The horse's hocks are sort of facing in towards each other instead of facing straight back. It' isn't a desirable feature and it's a conformation fault. It is also quite common. It is typically a genetic thing and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
That being said, your horse may grow out of it somewhat because at 8 months old there are a lot of changes yet to happen. Even if she doesn't she can still be an excellent trail horse for her whole life. She just may not be a good halter horse.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
