Overshot fetlock (“knuckling over”) in the horse
"Knuckling over", or upright fetlock joints in the horse, is usually caused by a congenital tendon deformity, where the tendons are too short. This causes considerable pain and weakness in otherwise well-conformed horses if corrective surgery is not undertaken soon after birth.
