Have any of you rehabbed a Big Lick TWH?
What was it like? Did you have to take the pads off gradually, or could you just take the whole thing off at once? Were they sound after? Did they need shoes or could they go barefoot? How was their gait without the pads? Did it look like they were attempting to gait the same way, or did they immediately look like a flat-shod Walker? If it was the former, did they ever go back to normal?
Anything else you want to add about the experience would be great. I'm planning on rehabbing some in the future (when I'm more financially secure) and I want to know what it entails. If they can actually be turned into normal horses, I'd like to retrain them and sell them as trail horses. If not, that's fine too. I'll keep them as pasture ornaments.
Thanks for the help : ]
