That hoof is long overdue for some farrier attention. Get one out to clean it up so you can see exactly what you're dealing with.
You're right, she should not be ridden.

Not my horse. He keeps saying his vet has a farrier he's going to call, but he also said Rain was getting a bad tooth pulled and that Boots would be gelded. Neither have happened yet.

I just want to pay what owe and get my horses the hell out. I'm getting kind of fed up. Yes, he's my friend, but he's more irresponsible than me, and he's got 50 years of experience.

Last week he was gone 9 days (Sat-Mon) and he gave me NO warning. I just happened to text him Sunday saying I was visiting, so I watered the horses (who had bone dry tubs). I then had my tooth removed so I was out of action for two days. I texted him Wed and he acted like he was mad I wasn't babysitting his horses, when I didn't realize it was suppose to be MY job, and was finally informed how long he planned on being gone. SO, I got to drive 25-30 minutes each direction the whole time he was gone. And April is now getting a cracked hoof, so I get to struggle even more to find my own farrier, convince them to come out, and possibly a vet out to see her for sedation so she can be properly cared for.

I'm so effing frustrated with him. I've just got to clean up a pasture and they'll be ready to move to a location where I can visit them daily without using a quarter tank of gas each trip. I'll also be able to know what kind of care they get for a fact because it'll be moi doing all the work.

Don't put any conditioner on it. That's a seriously compromised & seriously neglected hoof. By the sound of it, he's just feeding you stories to keep you quiet & is knowingly neglecting his horses. Please don't just forget these poor horses, but if you care about their welfare it sounds like it's time to call the animal welfare mob Difficult call when it's a friend, but could you really turn a blind eye & neglect them too?

The thing is, it wouldn't matter if I called. They don't do squat around here for horses. The very best I have ever seen them do is run the owner out of state, who I've seen take all their neglected animals else-where. It's a super fail on my area. The one person I know who could make an impact on such acts can't, because said owner in the wrong county.

I do plan to find a farrier and call them out there for Roger so he has no choice - at least once. Then maybe, if the farrier tells him how hard he ****ed up, he'll start feeling like a jackass. If not, I don't know what will happen. :/ If I had the money, I'd buy them all myself.

Well maybe you can tell your friend straight up what you think & then at least he won't treat you like a mushroom.... & keep your fingers x'd that his conscience & guilt, or at least shame might kick in. Perhaps offer to help him find them good homes too?

No, she's not lame at all. Walks and trots all over just fine, and sometimes canters. It's weird, but I'm glad to see she doesn't limp.
