Just bought this filly and she was shipped here yesterday. Got out of the trailer and this is what I saw ?? yes I probably should of asked for more pics and a vet check but she was priced low and the people said they needed her gone by Friday and just happened to find a shipper going thru Thursday morning. Is there anything I can do for her or is it just best to have her put down? She's a 2017 filly.

Thats a tough one!!!! I would maybe invest and have a quick vet visit , but as a 2 year old, I don't think that is going to correct itself, but you just never know!

I hope she was free. Poor thing! She's two? Urgh, I would probably put her down. That's a long road ahead and $$ trying to fix for something that isn't already riding or proven.

I don’t think there is much you can do if she’s already 2. There is such a tiny window that you can work in to straighten legs..

Sorry...a shipper CANNOT do that. Wow! Long road and many 'bucks' to fix that.

I am so very sorry.

 we had twins born 2 years ago the smaller fillie looked a little like that (no swelling in knees). at 2 weeks we had x rays done and DVM MOchal at MS State placed a screw in one side of knee and removed it in 4 weeks she said with her being cramped in the womb there was not adequate bone growth on one side. The screw stopped growth long enough for the other side to catch up. "lil bit" is fine now she said it had to be done asap to alow her body to develope. I think you missed your window. Lil bit has had a stifle growth plate that is delayed and this was not evident at birth. we hope she can grow out of it. she looks 100% straight now. just think if this fillie has obivious deficits at 2 she will have serious arthritis just existing, very sorry for both of you .PRAYERS

Oh my GOSH, my heart aches for this filly.. That seller needs a good A** whooping for letting this baby stay this way, she could have been helped as a new born, shes got wind sweeped legs.. have a good horse vet look at her and see maybe if she can be helped, but since shes a 2 year old I really have my doubts. So darn sad..

Yes,  you are right. You can do a 'shaving' of the bone, screws put in, cast it and then have corrective shoes done. I have seen it done on weanlings that come out like that just being a singular birth. However, it needs to done as early as possible and there is maintenance and 'bucks' involved.

And... the Seller really screwed up/scammed selling this filly like this and needs a good 'whoopin' for NOT dealing with it at birth/weanling.

And...her excuse.... a shipper did NOT do this. Just nuts what they try to justify.

Aww, poor girl! And sorry you got taken like this. 
I would take her to your vet and see what they say.
It sure looks bad, but a picture does not tell the whole "story". A vet should be able to tell you if there is something that can be done. 
If they say there is nothing you can do, at least you can put her out of her misery....  sometimes that is the nicest thing you can do for an animal that is suffering.

I would have a coronary. 

Then I'd probably blast the seller on the internet. Especially if they quit responding because they KNEW exactly what they did. 

Then I'd prob be forced to put the filly down, or see if someone needed a companion pasture pet.  That doesn't look fixable. 
I'd be 1/2 tempted to drive the filly back to them and drop her on the lawn, although they wouldn't be humane and put her down. Argh... 
Commence coronary.

  that is awful. Looks like she was born windswept. I always worry when something is sold cheap. Usually a reason.

Yes.... and they needed her gone by Friday. My guess would be they didn't want to put or couldn't put the money in her. And just got her gone. 

It is just awful and repugnant on the Seller's part.

They did NOT do right as a breeder by this baby.  They should definitely not be breeding/foaling babies any longer.

I feel absolutely heartbroken for the filly!
I would definitely get a vet out to take a look at her, and if she's not in pain but won't make a riding horse, she would be a lovely pasture pet! Good luck, and keep us updated!
