Let me make this thread somewhat ejamakashonal..



Do you mean the one with the super convexed forelegs? Thatd be over at the knee to the extreme of needing to be pts-- he would never be able to walk properly and it would cause major issues later on down the road.

post legged is when a horses hind legs are too straight..

A lot of foals are born "over at the knee" from being so folded up in the womb, but they normally straighten out within a few months. No, that foal does not need to be put to sleep. In his case, he most likely has contracted tendons. It's somewhat of an easy fix with surgery. I believe they cut the tendons to help stretch them out, and there are specific splints to help with that and other various problems.

In reference to that other colt who looks like a yearling, yes he is postlegged. It also looks like his pasterns have too much angle. Not a good combination. Just kidding about his pasterns! They dont have enough angle, actually. I must be going blind

Can't quote when on the phone, nuts.

Toto, you know for someone that was all bent out of shape about this thread being just a bash session, the whole "let me make this thread somewhat ejemakashonal" seems....off-putting/rude.

Stating what post legged is(as you've done) would've been sufficient.

Just trying to keep this thread going, as I think it's going to have beneficial information.

This one appears to have a bad ewe neck.

Rude? Me? Is that a joke?

What about the foal thats coonfooted/ extremely over at the knee? Rude for me to have said somethin about that too?

I think its probably gonna be a lot of disagreement.. to be honest id like to see it locked-- so would many others.

Not trying to be rude, but if this thread bothers you that much, you can unsubscribe from it. We understand it is not the horses fault. We are not dissing the horses. We are not even necessarily dissing the breeders of these horses. Many of them probably didn't know, but maybe some other naive people can learn from this thread and see what could prevent when it comes to breeding. A few people may want it locked, but just as many see it as edjamacational (I love that word xD).

I would also not say that foal is coonfooted. Again, its a newborn foal still unfolding. Some foals have "dropped pasterns" when they are born due to weak ligaments. They eventually strengthen and straighten up as the foal walks around. People don't critique growing horses for a reason, especially newborns.
