Hi, We just had a new filly born Sunday night at 11:30. She is still slightly walking with her back hooves turned up. How long does this usually take to correct itself?I had a filly once born with contracted tendons and was fine within a week but this is not nearly as bad, just wondering if I should be concerned at all? Thanks

We have had several TB babies and they tend to be down on the back and from what our vets have told us and others on the track is that there is so much baby and so little space in the mare that this happens. Normally within a week they are up and walking for us. I was always worried as it seemed like they were walking on their ankles. But with limited exercise they will become strong. Make sure that mom and baby have a little space to move and not they whole back 40 ! Baby should not feel like it has to keep up with mom. A small paddock, round pen something where the mare can't trot off and expect the baby to keep up. If you have major concerns talk with your vet, I know that others have experienced more severe problems but our babys always gain strenghth.

WATCH FOR SWELLING!! My baby was also down in the back and we gave it the usual week to fix itself first, but he was starting to hurt the joint. He ended up with those little shoes with the trailer for 2 weeks and he was fine ever since.
