    Look up spraddle or splay leg. That's what it looks like to me at a glance and there is lots of info on that subject.

    we have used vetrap and hobbled her hoping it will help her stand and maybe learn to walk.

    I hope she will be okay! Maybe if you do something she might grow out of it!
