Horses that are base narrow stand with the forelimbs inside the plumb line and overload the outside of the lower limb and foot. Horses that are base narrow, toed in tend to wing out, and those that are base narrow, toed out tend to wing in during protraction (see Figs. 4-12 and 4-13). With in-at-the-knee, knock-kneed, or carpus valgus conformation (Fig. 4-14) the carpi are medial to the plumb line, creating an angular deformity and concentrating the weight of the horse on the medial aspect of the carpus and proximal metacarpal region.
