After reading the post about Hackneys and seeing the BEAUTIFUL pictures, I couldn't help but notice how their hooves seemed so long and out of proportion. At least, to me anyway. I know nothing about this breed, so could someone enlighten me on why their hooves are like that? Is it to get more "action" out of their stride? Please, no disrespect to anyone or the breed, like I said, I know NOTHING about this breed. I just want to learn something new.
