Clubbed hoof?

I was looking at this horse that is for sale but his right rear hoof looks weird to me in the second picture. Can any of you tell if it's a little bit clubbed or if it's the lighting in the picture? I did ask for more photos of the horse standing square but he said they didn't have any.

And also, would that effect his soundness? Thanks!

It doesn't look clubbed to me. Basically, it looks like the lighting combined with the way he's standing (all his weight on that foot up underneath him, dropping the fetlock and making the hoof seem steep). I bet if he was squared up and standing normally, the hoof would be just fine.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thanks smrobs! :) That's what I thought. And that's why I asked for pictures of him standing square. For some reason, some people don't put decent pictures of the horse in their for sale ads....

LOL, I know. I've never understood that. Decent pictures in an ad can be the difference between finding a perfect forever home or having to drop the price over and over until only the shady buyers come looking.

you can not tell anything from those photos. The toe of the hoof simply could have sunk down in the dirt.
