Foal with stiff back leg

My foal is almost 5 months old. No problems till now, when walking his back leg gets stiff, then ok, almost like it locks up. Just the one leg.

My first instinct is to say that he might have a locking stifle. You should really get the vet out to check him over. It might be nothing...or it might be something that could effect his soundness for the rest of his life.
