Dang. That’s awful. I honestly think she’s too far along developmentally for you to be able to do much of anything. When they strip to correct a growth problem, it’s within a few weeks of birth if I remember right. Not that stripping would have helped her.

There’s no way that happened on the ride. I’m sure you could sue to get your money back. Especially given the lies. But that might cost you even more. Tough call on what to do. I’d personally be leaning towards euthanasia if it were me. Best of luck with whatever you decide to do. I’m truly sorry you ended up with/in this mess. Poor filly.

God bless her little heart. . . That's awful on the breeder's part. Some people have no conscience. I'd contact my vet and see if there's anything you can do for her before I gave up. But definitely do the right thing by the poor baby. Sorry this happened to you and her.

I contacted my vet which is a very blunt guy he confirmed it's windswept and said "get rid of her there's absolutely nothing to do at this point" I kinda already figured that but was hoping he would suggest something like to try to splint it and months of stall rest. On one hand I want to give her away for a pasture pet but on the other I dont want to end up giving her to someone who would resell her and a new buyer might also end up in my position not a clue that her legs were messed up. She is a super sweet filly and insanely athletic especially for her legs being that way. She's extremely small for a 2 yr old looks more like a weanling not sure she was taken care of much at all by previous owners. She isn't ribby but I feel like she should just be bigger.

Unfortunately, this breeder did not even remotely do right at all by this filly. It is very sad.  

Your vet is saying 'nothing can be done at this point' because it SHOULD have been shortly after birth or as an early weanling. Again a 'shipper' no matter how bad a shipper can be, actually caused this issue. This breeder knowingly sold this filly this way. The breeder/seller was so very wrong or negligent as a breeder. I have seen it this bad and was done within 2 weeks of birth with not a success story with it being done even then at that early of a stage. This filly is now an early 2YO, I would think it would be a bad prognosis even if you spent the money to try and fix her. 

Very sad ALL the way around. 

ETA... she is probably smaller than she should be as they did not feed her right and she had this problem. This breeder/seller should not be breeding/selling again. So very dishonest. Just bad.

Just curious, does this person that wronged you on this poor filly, do they breed and sell or was this just a person that bred a mare to get a baby? Do they have others that they are selling?

Unfortunately, at her age, the growth plates that you could manipulate to try and straighten her legs are closed. And, looking at the conformation of her knees, I would be concerned that she already has arthritis. I'm really sorry. You would think people were more honest these days... I know there's buyer beware but this goes a step beyond that.

I wouldn't be surprised if you found a surgeon willing to do some crazy stuff to try and make things a little better, but it would likely cost you well into the thousands of thousands of dollars with a really poor outcome.

Thank you! Yes I was hoping maybe posting on here someone might have an idea of a way to fix her enough to make her comfortable but it really doesn't sound like she is fixable and I'm thinking the older she gets and the more weight that goes on her knees and legs is just going to make it worse for her ????

I think you are right about as she gets older and heaver those legs just not going to be able to hold up and I hate to think how painful its going to be for her.. And I hate that those people put you on the spot like this, but you know what maybe it was meant to be, someone like you with a heart will find some way to help her as in trying to find a way or putting her down in a humane way.. Ask your vet if maybe they know of someone that would be willing to take her on..I dont know just thinking out loud to you, I wish I could help you,,, you sound like a great lady and Thank you for trying

Poor windswept little girl. If someone had put in the effort and the dough when she was a newborn, they probably could have done a lot for her. Now, unfortunately, it's too late to correct deviations like this. I'm so sorry, OP. The seller should be ashamed of themselves. Bless you for trying to give her a chance.

Edited to add: This is a great article explaining the narrow window of opportunity that exists after birth to best correct limb deviations in the foal.

This breeder knowingly sold this filly this way. The breeder/seller was so very wrong or negligent as a breeder. I have seen it this bad and was done within 2 weeks of birth with not a success story with it being done even then at that early of a stage. This filly is now an early 2YO, I would think it would be a bad prognosis even if you spent the money to try and fix her. 



Very sad ALL the way around. 
I don't blame the shipper at all I feel like it was a last ditch effort on the sellers part to blame the shipper.

Just curious, does this person that wronged you on this poor filly, do they breed and sell or was this just a person that bred a mare to get a baby? Do they have others that they are selling?

The filly is branded with an RR on the left shoulder looks like the seller and breeder are from the same family as they're last names are both Hunt

She didn't happen to come from So. Cal did she? I bought a mare with the same brand from the same last name down that direction. She wasn't in the best shape either when she got to us, although not quite this drastic.

norcal - 2019-02-02 8:38 AM I contacted my vet which is a very blunt guy he confirmed it's windswept and said "get rid of her there's absolutely nothing to do at this point" I kinda already figured that but was hoping he would suggest something like to try to splint it and months of stall rest. On one hand I want to give her away for a pasture pet but on the other I dont want to end up giving her to someone who would resell her and a new buyer might also end up in my position not a clue that her legs were messed up. She is a super sweet filly and insanely athletic especially for her legs being that way. She's extremely small for a 2 yr old looks more like a weanling not sure she was taken care of much at all by previous owners. She isn't ribby but I feel like she should just be bigger.
Unfortunately, this breeder did not even remotely do right at all by this filly. It is very sad.  



Your vet is saying 'nothing can be done at this point' because it SHOULD have been shortly after birth or as an early weanling. Again a 'shipper' no matter how bad a shipper can be caused this issue.

She has breeders listed as Ralph or Penny Sue hunt out of yermo California I bought her from Jesse hunt out of la pine Oregon

YEP! Same people.
I bought her as 5 yr old and she looked to be about 2. She was pretty timid around people and just wanted to be left alone. Very very head shy, twitchy when you would move, etc. A year later and you wouldn't recognize her. She grew almost an entire hand, put on probably 150 lbs and is as sweet as can be now.
