What do you think of these back legs??
Charlies back legs dont look right to me they look like they have to much slant in them. When the vet came out when he was 1 day old he said its normal for large breeds to be born like that, but I would think they would straighten up by now. What do you all think? Here are some pics I took today. Thanks

How old is he now? my mare had a foal with legs like that but after two weeks he straitened out.I agree he has to much angel time might help but not sure.

He is 4 weeks old now and they dont seem to be getting any better.

Being that he four weeks old i would be getting a vet out nows the time to try and fix thoughs legs. Hes way to flexed in the fetlocks iam sure that can be corrected. But do call a vet if the one you use doesnt think its a big deal find a diffrent vet but do get a vet out. Spirit88
