I don't know, is something wrong with his face? Because you didn't post any pictures of it, lol. Other than that, I have no idea how foals should look as they grow, nor how they shouldn't look. I would love to see a face though. =]

No he hind legs are the same length... shes in a really hilly bumpy pasture so she looks a little lop sided in some pics lol but her hinds are very much the same length :)

In the pix of when he is older, something about his front legs/hooves really bugs me. He looks back at the knee, his fetlocks look either swollen or slightly misshapen, and his pastern angles just look weird. Plus his front hooves look way too small for his body. That is all that kinda jumps out at me.

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:

Is that a blemish on the left front cannon or just the coloration?

The left front cannon mark is a marking/coloration. She has some very unique markings. :)
And yes she was very bum high... but has leveled out nicely :)
I will post what she was born with later on today :)
