I doubt there is a real connection, but.... my mare is slightly cow hocked, and her fast walk is the least smooth of any horse I have ever owned, all of which had very straight legs. Her walk isn't uncomfy to sit...there is just a lot of "swing" to it. I put her on hilly pasture as a filly which did seem to improve the leg angle a bit, and....there is, in fact, less "swing" to her fast walk.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
