Have experienced the same situation on several occasions, all involved rather large calves. In all of the cases, except one, the muscles, tendons and ligaments strengthened enough in several days to support the weight of the calf, i.e. the legs straightened out. Only in one case did we have to make braces. If it goes more than several days, consult your vet.
