I read a comment by Bazy Tankersley somewhere, and she stated that
arabians have to be a little bit cow hocked, in order for the hind legs
to clear their big barrel. All of our arabians are cowhocked to a minor
degree, and we've never experienced any problems.
As to sickle hocked, reiners prefer their horses to be a tad sickle
hocked....makes it easier for them to stop because their hind legs are
already somewhat underneath them.
I would say if the horse isn't grossly incorrect, go for it.
