That horse is swaybacked... it wasn't born that way.
Here is a good article about it: Lordosis

That's a horse that should have been put down years ago!!

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

UMMMM WHY?? Just because he's swaybacked?
He's not the only horse that looks like this, soooo many horses in the world are swaybacked - and it's not a painful condition...

That's got to hurt.



Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
