    It does seem like most horse's hinds turn out a bit. Humans like things straight, but the older I get the more I think we should not monkey around trying to "fix" conformation issues and realize that nature sometimes knows best. My vet seems to be a big believer in that as well.

    Wow! Very interesting.....I wouldnt be surprised if that was true ;) I know Rodeo's feet turn out in the hind, but his fronts are straight!
