This poor horse. These people have like 40 horses (and I'm not exaggetating at all, that's what the girl told me!) and they all have feet like this. Absolutely horrible. I agree that the heels are way to high. It really didn't seem to phase him while we were riding, but then again I wouldn't really know as I have never ridden the horse before. They really need to switch farriers! Anyway, we told the girl we weren't interested and we're going to keep looking. Hopefully he gets taken care of though. He was such a sweetie. I hate seeing great horses wasted by ignorant owners.
On another note, and I know this is kind of off topic, but I stopped by our local auction today and there were only about 15-20 horses this time....Last month there was close to double! So glad to see that people are hanging on to them now....But I guess they've fed them through the roughest part of the year, so the rest should be a breeze. Until next fall anyway. :(
