6 yr old Hanovarian that received staple surgery as a foal to correct a valgus deformity in the RF and a varus deformity in the LF. This is known as a “wind swept” foal because the limbs curved at the knee as if a strong wind had blown from the left in this picture to the right. Note that they are both still slightly angular as the surgery did not completely correct the angular limb deformity of the RF and overcorrected the deformity in the LF (leading to “Knock knees”).
