My beautiful 6 week old Hanoverian filly has a hind leg that bends at the fetlock. Cannon bone angels out and pastern angels in so that the hoof is straight.
Seen from the side the leg appears normal but seen from the front and back where the fetlock should line up with the pastern it does this /
\
Any chance she will straighten by herself with age?
What to do?

Someone mentioned a splint that can be used on foals wish I could remember who it was. I would not rely on them straightening all on there own.

Yes it was me, they are called Dyna Splint. They work miracles. In fact the horse I used it on is now a yearling and going to a sale soon and my blacksmith commented the other day as to how correct he is. There is an extremely minute chance your horse will correct on its own.

The dyna splints are used on people too. My son had broken his arm in a difficult place and couldn't straighten his arm. The Dyna Splint did the trick!

They are great things. I mean when this foal was born he could not walk, as in could not leave the stall, he is now deemed correct by my blacksmith!
