Unhappy Pasterns looking funny

my horses pasterns are looking funky; she's a rescue and her feet were quite bad. so do you think this is why her pasterns could be looking so unusal.

Ya alot of times if their feet aren't correct it can cause them to stand back on their pasterns if that makes sense.

I am with Wild_Spot, I don't see anything wrong with them except they are a bit short but that is a confo issue, not a feet issue. Gorgeous horse by the way.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

In a different post i think it says critique my horse mya. The first picture mya's pasterns look like she's standing back on them. But i agree with everyone else she does look a lot better now.

I saw your previous post, and I agree that it looks like you have pretty well corrected the problem. Looking good!

It's amazing how good farrier work can change everything on a horse.
