Well looking at the video today and wondering why you can't see the lameness, and I can't see it today either....guess he maybe good to go.

LOL, I decided not to send Emmy, she is coming nicely, Willow was never an option. Big Ben wins as he needs a value add, at the moment he is a pretty and sweet pasture ornament, so he needs to build a skill base. The girls have papers and training behind them, so hopefully are reasonably safe in their futures, if God forbid they had to find homes quickly.

Teeehehe you were just so worried... he's okay :) Sky used to lose chunks of his feet all the time like that :/ He had awful feet though back then..

He'll grow it all back eventually ;)

Have a brilliant day

Well, lame or not, I would be concerned. Just because he's not having a problem today doesn't mean that this isn't going to cause problems tomorrow or next week. I advise having the farrier out ASAP. Whether to shoe or not is a decision you have to make with your farrier. Would you mind posting a sole shot? I'd love to see what actually got lost there. Looks like his heel is still there???

Farrier is on vacation right now, but have emailed him video and pic, did try to get a sole shot but it was so out of focus it showed nothing, will have another go later.

I'm just not sure a shoe would actually help anything there

I just gotta say, you're a great horse mom, looking out for your horses' futures no matter what may come.

LOL I would like to thank the other members of this Forum, my trainer, some good friends who all had an input in this decision. I had been thinking of it from my point of view, but as Kitten Val and others pointed out, without papers or a job, Ben would be at the mercy of the market. A big broke nice horse though, well while he may not get back the investment, he would stand a good chance of a happy future!
