How old is this calf? Is this recent & does it have a temp? Could be anything from joint ill to an injury. Can you provide more info and a pic?

I would suggest calling your vet or taking it in.

Still not much information for us to help you, I still don't know what the "keen hoke" is but I am interested to find out.

Are referring to the knee or the hock?? The knee and the hock are 2 different joints.

Is it lame in that leg? If it was like it when you got it, may even be broken and trying to heal which they can do with time.
