    Tomorrow I am calling the vet and going to ask for farrier numbers.

    Oh, that is a neat avatar ;)

    Hmmm I was under the impression that people local to you had given you numbers for farriers and you said that you had found a farrier.

    Your pony really needs your help, please get someone out to him.

    No feet...no horse. It is that serious. There are some things you can neglect about a horse and not see consequences for a very long time. Feet do not fall under that category. I'm surprised that you got away with it this long. His feet are in horrible condition, IMO, and badly in need of a farrier. We can't help you fix this. You need a professional to start working on those hooves.

    If you can't afford a farrier, then give him away or shoot him. I don't want to sound mean, but his feet will continue to grow and the problem will only get worse. If you keep him and are unwilling to provide the care he needs, things will only get way worse for him. Why let it get to the point that he is in so much pain he can't walk? Get him a farrier, or get rid of him. He doesn't deserve to suffer.

    Not just soon, he needed to see a competent farrier long before his feet looked like that.

    I get the impression that you are quite young, and it may be up to your parents to make the call (and I'm very very sorry if that's not the case ), but understand that a scenario like this is extremely frustrating to those of us reading it - there is no excuse for his feet to be that bad, period. Going by this thread and the other one you put up about this pony, I'm very concerned that he may founder. By putting off making the phonecalls and getting someone out, you're playing with fire.

    Did you contact Alison at all? She would bee the best bet with farriers that know how to deal with ponies and their issues...

    Which farrier did you get a hold of?
