    Carpal hyperextension is a condition predominantly found in Nigerian Dwarf goats but is also increasingly seen in standard breeds. It is characterized by a visibly bowed appearance in one or both front legs. Affected animals often walk fine, but will exhibit a classic “waving” action on first standing, where they hold the affected leg (or alternate between both legs if both are affected) off the ground, almost waving it up and down for a few seconds before bearing weight.

    This discussion is for resources, information and experiences related to the carpal hyperextension (CH) condition.
