    I agree too, though that doesn't explain such a bad sickle hock, he would simply be downhill. Maybe he will unfold a bit as he gets older... I sure hope so, or he won't be good for too much :[

    I wouldn't touch that horse with a 10 foot pole. I'm not some intense conformation person, but those hocks look waay too straight. I'm also a believer of the three rule, look at a horse at three weeks old, because he's balanced enough you can see his gaits but he hasn't really started to grow a ton out of proportion. Three months old because he's matured and you can start to see what he's going to mature like. Three year old because he should be ready to break and his joints will be closing and he'll basically just have the last stages of growth and filling out to do.
    I'd say the foal is about 3 weeks old and that hind end is WEIRD.

    He's definitely a bit out of proportion, but all foals are like that when they're young - they tend to be funny looking, gangly little things - I think he's cute though

    If he stays like that I would be worried. I am always hesitant to judge babies at that age though because they are so bizzare looking.

    I think it is just because he is a newborn in that pic. He'll look a lot better in a few months.

    I work on a breding farm and all of our babies pretty much looked like this but after a couple weeks they are perfect
