    Not fixable, will not effect health at all.

    Yes there is a chance he would pass it on. Should not be used for breeding in my opinion. Its one of those traits that should be culled for like slipped wings and crooked toes.

    He may have just had a tail bone out of place and it popped back in. Hard telling, looks good and straight now.
