Does this horse have a club foot?

Do you think this mare has a club foot? My farrier told me this mare has 'terrible' feet and bad club foot, but I can't see it at all. This mare has been shown in hand in conformation classes with her previous owner and did very well.

I hope this link to fb work, if not please tell me.

They don't look terrible. . . Hard to tell.

If it's there, it's not severe. Nothing a little farrier work couldn't fix. There's not much I can see from the picture.

I can see the club on the front right hoof. Deep bent ankle along with the angle of the hoof makes it look like one if anything. Not the worst i've seen before.

Okay, thanks for the opinions. The farrier thought it was the front LEFT hoof that was a club. No one on this forum thought it was this hoof! I also got a few pm's suggesting the back hooves. I think she has different slightly different angles on her front hooves, but this does not constitute a club hoof! I have seen pictures of her as a one and two year old and there is no club. She was also shown extensively on-line and placed very well. She even made it to a championship at the royal winter fair in toronto which is a very big and prestegious show. Presumably horses with club hooves don't make it this far!

Its hard to tell from the picture really. Her feet look pretty normal

As a bare foot trimmer, the image displays no club foot on any foot.........
Would need to see closeups of each hoof frontview and sideview to say for sure.

I am confused... I thought when the angles of the cannon bone, pastern and hoof are... misplaced(?) it was called a "BareFoot". And "Club Foot" was when the hoof grows under itself(the opposite of "Slipper Foot")?
