It depends on where the turning in starts. Some horses turn in right at the pastern, while others have the turning start more gradually up by the knee or through the cannon. Where the turning starts can have an effect on the horses long-term soundness and what the horse would be capable of holding up to. In addition - as others pointed out, the degree of the toeing-in can also effect soundness.
Issues like side-bone and ring bone will have to be something watched for in the future because a toed-in horse is more prone to these issues.
All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!
