    Hard to say from a couple photos.

    he does look like he is standing on his toes in the one photo though..isn't that opposite of a typical founder stance?

    Not if he's rotated!

    To me it looks like he is extremely upright in the pasterns and hooves (clubby) AND has too much toe - so he looks like he is on stilts in that one picture! Looks like a sweetie though and certainly is cute if you don't look at those legs!

    I don't see how you can tell that from two crappy photos! He definetly needs some work on his feet.

    Yes, I have known a founded pony that was rotated – and he stood like that on his toes, shoulders and forearms very tense. I see the same tense muscles in this horse. Although with the pony I knew, he was tense like that all the way over his back (poor thing really needed to be put down, but his A hole owner wouldn’t do it).

    Yes, that's what I see, too. Poor little guy.

    Well the ad says he was foundered so rotation would not be out of the realm of possibility
