New mini. But what's wrong with his legs?

I don't know what his mom looked like but I know his dads legs looked fine.

He's 1 1/2
I wormed him today



Now his legs. He stands weird on one or the other ( backs)
Either he's like this



Or like that

( yes I know he needs his feet done . He just got here today)

That's not right (I know, you know). Does he seem painful? I hope the farrier can help give you some good information!

Sorry to say. But you have more problems than a farrier can fix.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

He will stand on either, like cock a leg up when relaxing and doesn't act like it hurts.

But they like.. 'Toe in' as he walks and twist.


Yeah I'm sure that the farrier won't be able to fix that bit I know his feet need to be done. He was a $50 horse though, they went down from $200.
I know something's wrong

It looks kind of like windswept legs maybe? Poor guy, can't be fun. Talk to your vet and see if putting splints on his legs will help him straighten/strengthen those legs up.

It might not be. But seeing as how he is still growing, there may be a possibility you can stop it from at least getting worse, if not improving it. Your vet would definitely be able to give you some good advice on that. Can he run? Or do his legs do the funky noodle?

He doesn't lay down much. Doesn't act like they hurt and yes he runs and trots.
