    Maybe her legs are OK but her body needs to be turned -

    She is never going to regain any sort of mobility with legs that badly deformed. I would cull her. That defect is too great to fix.

    Sorry.

    even if i was to turn her body then instead of her right leg being backwards her left leg would be

    she has some mobility it just isnt the best she kind of pushes with the one and hops on the other.
