Re: RC: immediately rule out a horse that toes out?

Heck, no!  It's all a matter of degree!  You have to look at each horse as a whole package, and not get hung up on any one particular fault.  If the whole package goes well together, you only throw out the ones where individual faults are beyond a minor degree.  Give me a balanced horse with several minor faults ANY day over one with "perfect parts" that don't all seem to go on the same horse!
