Base wide in back and crooked pastern?

Okay,so this has bothered me ever since I've noticed. Gidget has a crooked rear pastern is off compared to the other pastern. I think this is why she has a flare on this foot and I noticed she walks more on the inside and the outside is the flare...does anyone else have this issue? Will shoes help or is it not fixable? I also noticed she is base wide in the back but not in the front..anyone else's horses like this? I read on a conformation site that this can make there legs "wing out".

I love my little horse to pieces but this flaw really bothers me.Is it something to bring up to the farrier? I will get picture and see what you guys think.

Other than her being base wide with a crooked pastern everything is great!

Yes it is certainly something to bring up with your farrier. If he has not already noticed this and is working on it, change farriers.

I would like to keep my horse barefoot. I showed him the foot and he trims it differently to help her out and she seems better. I HONESTLY don't want shoes on my horse. She had them on before and it was a royal pain in the butt as she lost one or it would slide and I don't like that she ends up being so up right =/

I know her flaw can break her down in time if not taken care of. Are shoes most likely something she needs?
