Loosie, thanks for looking at both horses' feet, I appreciate your input and have always loved reading your critiques.
I have suspected this guy had metabolic upset. When I asked the seller if he foundered she said no, he has never taken a lame step in his life. But she did mention he spent the winter with her friend who was used to feeding OTTB's, not fat little appys, so he gained a lot of weight. We are still dieting him to get his weight down to a more appropriate level. Just like the previous photos, I will re-do his next week once the farrier cleans him up (this will be my farrier's first experience with Chief, he did NOT leave those high heels!)
