Wait "interested" in a gelding?

I don't want to say she's sickle-hocked.. hmm.. its almost as if her gaskins are leading her legs into posting out, but then come in under her instead.

I honestly wouldn't worry about it. Maybe I'm crazy.

WHATS REALITY?

he was gelded lait. It's was bad judgement by the BO I'm still mad at him to this day. If I had known that he was gelded lait I would have told him there was no way in hell that I would have her in a feild with him. Whats done is done though.

I think the bigest problem your seeing is that she is standing really odd on her back end. I dould not get her to stand square. If I asked her to move her hind legs she would get all pissy and rear and a bunch of other crap so I got her as best as I could. There are some older pics of her in my barn if you want to compair them to see if you see a diff? I would apriciate(SP?) it. :)

Her toes are way too long, and that's causing her to sink down on her pasterns. I think that's what people are seeing--it's influencing her whole leg and stance. Somebody needs to yell at the farrier.

Her entire hind end is set a bit too far back. Shorter toes will help but will not cure the fact that her back is too long. I wonder if she would toe out as much in front if she was standing on level ground.

Looks a useful sort but not a spectacular horse.. nice sound horse but nothing exceptional.

How about yeling at 15! I'm having a hard time finding a farrier that does what he is saposed to not just take my money and run. It's pissing me off. They have even been sugested by people that have horses that I know! BTW her feet were just "done" a week ago. It cost me $45. I thought maybe if I found one that wasn't just $25 that I might get my moneys worth. Boy was I wrong.

The next farrier that comes out beter do it right or I'm shooting him!

She doesnt toe out in front. It was the sand and the way she was standing.

I was going to take her to the wash rack (concret) to take the pics but there was some one giving her horse a bath.

But I know that she DOES toe out in the back. I know her back is long but do you think it could cause her problems in the future? I like to ride her around but I don't ride her hard. Exspecialy because of them freeken toes.

haha, I know all about that! We've gone through ten farriers in the last year, and after a while, the BO just went to farrier school and learned to do it himself xD

I agree that there is something a bit odd about those back legs though, although I couldn't tell you what. They just don't seem put together right. Nothing major though.
