She tottered along for a year and was horribly underweight and malnourished and had pounded all her development plates in that leg and experienced issues strolling and couldn’t run.

Our vets said that it was Windswept Angular Limb Deformity, which is normal in steeds and ought to have been adjusted during childbirth.
