    Yes! That is definitely a concern, so you need to watch. Breeders have to protect our bucks because they can be blinded by love lol.

    So, as this boy grows he seems to be real posts in his hindend. Like his back leg almost hyperextends forward at the hock sometimes. I feel like this is an issue that is making me want to sell him. But not sure if it could be a growth stage he is going through?

    I’ve personally never seen one this posty. It could possibly be some sort of growth spurt. Have you asked the breeder about it?

    I have not asked the breeder about it. I'm thinking and hoping he's just in a wonky growth spurt but idk. He definitely wasn't this post when he arrived. Here is a video. Please excuse his condition. He has dropped a ton of weight from having pneumonia. We almost lost him.

    You’re fine! The video isn’t as drastic as I thought it would look. I’d chalk it up to a growth spurt. How old is he?

    He just turned 8 months old. This picture shows it better. No ticks that I've noticed

    So odd. Is it the same on the other leg too?

    Yes, other leg is the same. I've never seen this before.
