foal with crooked legs

Hi All!
My friend just bought her dream horse! A 3 month old qh colt, he was weaned early at the breeding farm, and he is now at my house,
Iam however concerned about his front legs, they are "pigioned out" ?? Or they look to me to turn outwards from the fetlock to the hoof, The breeder told her that this is a milk stance and normal,.,,, but I thought that they lost the milk stance earlyier? Iam concerend as she has paid over $3000 for him and if they are crooked he is not worth that,,, she did buy him on a contract,

Do you have pictures of him? It would be much easier to help you figure out what it is going on with him. Sometimes, minor conformational faults like toeing out can be fixed by corrective trimming by a knowledgeable farrier.

If they are on your computer, you can upload them as attachments. When you click on post reply (not the quick reply box at the bottom, but the blue button just under the last post), there is a little paperclip you can click on that will take you to an attachments page. After that, just browse your hard drive for the picture and click "upload picture".

It would be easier that way, plus everybody could see them and you can get some more opinions.

Hm. Another option is to load them onto a site like flickr or photobucket, then you can just copy and paste them.

Are you saying that he toes out? Many horses toe out a bit and although it's not ideal conformationally speaking it doesn't necessarily mean he will have soundness issues.
