Wow... Look bad to you to?

Is it just me or does this baby look really... Off?

Worst sickle hock, and somethin really weird with the back end...

It's for sale for $8,000. Do you think it's just an awkward baby stange, or a serious conformation flaw?

It's a new baby, when they are in their first couple days a lot of them can still be all crooked and jumbled from being in their mommy for so long. He'll look better soon.

I am a newb at conformation yet he still looks weird too me. The proportions are off as to his legs and body, but that could be an age thing. I don't know.

What breed is it????

Hmm, it's kinda hard to say. Like pepper said, new foals can look a bit odd at first. They take time to fill out. :) I think it's cute, hehe! But yeah...what caught my eye were the very long legs & short body.

Most babies are very long legs and sort bodies because those cannon bones are almost full length at birth.

However, the back-end worries me a bit. Is it a gaited by chance? I've seen similar back-ends on gaited and gaited crosses.

Eep. You guys are right. That foal's hindquarters don't seem right and he has sickle hocks.

It looks like his back legs are longer than his front legs, but that could be unlevel ground? Other than that he's kinda cute.
