offset knee

A conformational fault of the forelimbs visible from the front. The metacarpal bones (cannon bones) are offset to the lateral side: they do not follow the axis of the limb running through the radius, the limb axis runs through the medial part of the cannon and pastern region and the medial part of the hoof.
