My new colt has got a problem with one of his hocks. while he is moving it looks normal but when he stands still it go's between looking normal and bowing forward. I have had foals before that have been down on their fetlocks for the fist week or so but never this. i have tried googling it but have come up with knee and fetlock problems but nothing to do with the hock. he was 14 days earlier than the due date. I am hoping that it is the same sort of thing as the feltock but just on his hock, any ideas please.

Karen, I have not seen that before, so can't help. But best advice is to get a vet to look at him ASAP. If there is a problem you need to take action right away so that it can be corrected/repaired. Foals grow so fast the first few months and any thing that is affecting conformation now will only get worse and could affect other areas such as the hip or back. Could be that this something he will "grow out of", but I would not take the risk without seeking the opionion of a good vet. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
