Awwww, he is just way too cute, but is it normal for his back pasterns to be bent like that? I have only had 2 foals and don't remember seeing them like that but then again mine were QHs so I know every breed is different. :)

yep. he was less than 24hours old there, and for the first couple days they are like that because they havent built up the muscles to hold them up in their pasterns yet.

I've seen a goodly amount of newborns in my lifetime, and I have never in my life seen anything that extreme that didn't require corrective measures. Is he ok now? I definately wouldn't call that normal.

He's adorable though, huge congrats!

I can't see the photos here at work, but many foals are born with wonky legs that straighten up in time.
