As you can see this foal's legs aren't correct. his check ligament is too tight on one leg and only a little better on the other one.
He is on a month's restricted movement so is stabled with his dam, who is also on restricted food (ad lib old hay)
The vet will rasp his hooves as often as he can to try and get him to stop appearing on tip toe.
If this doesn't work vet will treat him to help the muscles relax.
We are massaging the legs as many times a day as we can, he's a good foal and never makes a fuss about it.
