Triceratops Stance

I've been asked to create a short video for a museum about the leg position of Triceratops. Older skeletons have the legs mounted more reptilian like (splayed out to the side), while the newer mounts are more mammal-like in stance with legs almost directly underneath the body.

Is there any consensus among those of you who study the Ceratopsians as to the correct placement of the legs? What evidence supports this new leg positioning?

As always, thanks for any help with this.
