Does my filly seem to have a Club Foot



I BOUGHT THIS FILLY IN APRIL. SHE TURNED 2 IN MAY. I THOUGHT MAYBE SHE WAS JUST TRIMMED SHORT OR MAYBE HAD SMALL FEET. NOW I'M STARTING TO THINK SHE HAS CLUB FOOT. WHAT DO YOU THINK? THE PICTURES OF HER UNDER SADDLE ARE MOST RECENT. THE OTHER PICS ARE 6 MONTHS TO A YR OLD. THANKS.

My first mare had a club foot so I know exactly what to look for, but those pics are too small for me to really see anything....

Here are better pics

Here are some close ups of her feet. She is very unpatient and paws so i'm wondering if that is why her toe is short. The previous owner said she would have the farrier drop the heel a little and I should too. She aid she does not have club foot.

I don't know if its so much as club foot or just a bad trimming job, are her heels taken down in the back? From the looks of it their not, causing the bone in her foot to be angled, does she look to be in discomfort while trotting? I can see it looks like she's developing bruising around the coronary band.

She has Stumpy hooves, but It doesnt look like club foot. It could partially be caused by her upright pasterns. But it could be caused completely by a poor trimming job. You might even think about getting her partial shoes for her heels to help correct the growth?

I think it's from her pasterns. They are very upright, and from what I've seen that tends to make the hoof a bit stumpy and short.

I bought her in april and I didn't have anything done to her hooves then because I thought they were already trimmed too short. Now its been a few months and they still haven't grown out. That is why I thought maybe club foot. The previous owner said when she had the horse she had her farrier drop the heels to correct the angle and that I should do the same. I plan on having my farrier whom is very good come out and look at her.do you think dropping the heels will help? Do you think pawing is making it worse? Thanks for all the info provided.

She hasnt had any lameness issues and appears in no pain when being worked, trotted, or after.
