Hock hyperextention

Postby tjmdo » Sat Mar 17, 2018 7:27 pm

I have a 2 day old heifer calve who has a left hock that hyperextends when she is walking. Has anyone seen this and will she grow out of it?

Yes, and yes. I see it a lot in early calves, the joints are not solid yet. Give her a few days and you will not see it.

Time does seem to be the best medicine.
