Do you mean because he is high in the rear????

Just go in the ring and when the judge is not looking, move a little dirt with your boot and put his back legs in little holes.

How about mini stilts on his front hooves?

It gets confusing around where I live. LOL Some people use that term .5 as half a hand. It varies by regions too! I had someone tell me their horse was 15.8 hands, and I just started at them blankly. It happens alot with people that don't know standard measurements. The man who told me that had well over 30 horses too! So I was a little confused as to how he didn't know proper measurement.

No kidding......

We tried putting pads in the shoes of a yearling.

He looked swayback.

The holes for the back feet work.

I realized you may have been serious after I posted that. I just had a really funny picture of how that would work out for me. I'm not very smooth...

I tried to do really good, but I only did kinda good. I could have sworn I was on level ground, but he looks more even when he's facing right, and more downhill when he's facing left. And I got a couple of pictures right in the middle of him moving a foot. But I tried!
