Not really sure if this is where this belongs but I think I can get answers here! My trainer has a little 6 month old colt who was an accidental breeding. He is absolutely beautiful. The only thing is that his back ankles pop out. It almost looks like his joint is too big for his pasterns. Which also, his pasterns seem very weak and it looks like they don't belong with the rest of his leg. He dosn't have long toes and his front feet are fine. He was also fine as a baby! That is the weird thing! The dad does have double joints in his back ankles but it has never been passed to his foals and his look completely different than this colts. It dosen't seem to affect him at all. No pain, no lameness. Any ideas to what is could be? Seems like it may be a growth issue? My trainer can't afford to take him to the vet. I was thinking if it is something that might be able to be fixed I would take him in.
I don't have any pictures of the joints now but I will get them! I do have pictures of him when he was under a month old with his mom and the dad with his double jointed back legs. Does it seem like he has weak pasterns in these pictures? Thanks for any help you can give me!!
