    I have a foal over at the knees. 2 days old. What should I be doing for him? Limited turn out? Vet? Give it time for him to straighten out? This is all new to me! First foal! Thanks!!! 20191105_102119(0).jpg 20191105_103159.jpg 6 20191105_102119(0).jpg 20191105_103159.jpg 20191105_102826.jpg 20191105_102119(0).jpg 20191105_103159.jpg 20191105_102826.jpg

    Give him some time to straighten out , More turn out time, the better. It will help to straighten his tendons. No doubt you are taking a million photos on your phone, if you compare these to ones in a couple of weeks , you will be surprised how much he has straightened out.

    You can remove the tail bandage too :)

    He is very very very cute !!

    Such a sweet baby! He'll be needing a vet check anyway, in the meantime a good romp is a good idea. I didn't think he looked bad, foals always look a little knock kneed to me. Good luck!

    Thank you guys! I was just a worried mom
    He does get stretched daily as I'm a massage therapist and have that training. I'm hoping it helps! I want to eventually show this guy! But most importantly I want a sound healthy baby!
