Agreed! Otherwise you'd be like a wheelbarrow ;)
I can't see the pictures at the moment as I'm at work so will check when I get home. I will get some confo pics of my Westfalen too, she's very young, and was very skinny, so she doesn't have a lot of build up, and her front legs are a bit funny with pigeon toes
but would be good to compare!
