Anybody have experience with foals hind legs being too straight , looking from side. Foal tends to have a stiff legged walk at times but runs like all the rest. I seem to recall having this previously with only one leg affected, but it became normal as foal developed. Is there a name for this condition?

Typically this is called "straight in the stifles" if I am understanding you correctly. This conformational fault can usually lead to locking stifle, or upward fixation of the patella.
