Good morning, its been a very long time since I have been to this forum but im so very glad i have found it again!
I got sent some photo's this morning of a friends newborn foal. He obviously has a deformity of the bottom jaw, it's very enlarged all the way down one side. I initally thought it was a form of Wry nose, but that seems to only effect the nasal bones.

We have a 7 year old spotted saddle horse gelding and he has a similar deformity on his face, just not as large. The woman we bought him from said he badly injured his face as a foal and the bone overgrew. It kept growing until he stopped growing. It doesn't seem to bother him (or us)- we barely notice it anymore but a lot of people turned him down because of it. They were turning down an absolutely fabulous horse.

This little guy popped out this way, no injury here. Im guessing his future is looking pretty dismal unfortunatly but i would be interested to know if this has a name or is just one of those things that happens every now and then.
