    Cow hocked Weanlings

    I have a 6month old colt. When I bought him his legs were straight, now he looks cow hocked. His hoofs are a little long but were getting them done. Will getting his hoofs done fix it? Will he ever grow out of it? Thanks in advance.

    I am taking my colt to a show Thursday and I clipped all but his legs and ears. He just wont let me touch them. I got him about a month ago and he was never worked with until now.

    I am looking at a 4 month colt and he seems a little high butted. But I'm not sure if he will straighten out or just get worse. At a few weeks old he looked straight across the back. I mean its not bad but he's not straight. Is there any way to tell if he will straighten out?

    I am looking at a colt and his body type is very refined and he has a very dished head. As he grows will his comformation stay the same or will it change so he no longer looks refined? I have never had a foal before so I was just wondering. Thanks
