week old fill was born with one front leg very crooked. She is very bent in at the knee..from forearm down to fetlock and this makes her toed out as well. The knee hits the other knee

Should I wait to see if she comes straight or do I start to intervene right away?

Thanks

Tracey, I do not know anything about this. I'm sorry it is happening to you.

Do you have a lot of experience?

My advise would be to have a vet check it. Let us know what happens, okay?

I second having a vet check it out, if its bad enough they may want to splint. I did have a foal born with fairly crooked/weak front legs a few yrs ago and had remarkable results with Progressive's Rejuvinade, so I would suggest trying that or something like it too....can't hurt.

Tracey how is your foal? I had a foal born that had both knees like you described. My vet kept saying "give her time", it drove me nuts. We named her Twiggy because her legs were as crooked as a twig. She did straighten up but it took about 2 months. She was a normal term (11 months 5 days) baby but she looked like she was a bit premature. We did limit her exercise to help reduce injury to the joints. Hope everything is going well.
