Are this horses feet fixable or is it not fesible to get her?

I recently got a horse from a guy and well he posted this one AFTER I got my mare.... I am super inclined to think this horse is my mares filly. I want to know if her feet are fixable to go back to where they need to be. Her feet are starting to get slipper foot... this is the ONLY pic I have of her feet. I know it isnt much but you can see how her cannon bone is under stress from her feet being so long!

That is criminal. I would like to believe this poor beautiful creature has age on her side and, w the right care, can easily be made whole again. It is more than her cannon bone that is being comprimised. I am not an expert, but it would take an expert to examine her feet up close and in person - along w xrays - to determine w surety what, if any, lasting damage there is.

The thing about youngsters is that they are flexible and easily manipulated. She has that on her side.

The downside is that they are easily manipulated, even in the wrong way. Her legs will grow and strengthen like this, which will cause her problems down the line. I don't have an answer for you. All I can say is that if you want her, to go and judge for yourself. I have seen miracles where horses come back from much worse.

I have friend in animal control that have told me they can go to the property and seize all the horses for abuse... He told me he would seize them and bring them by my stables and let us choose the horses we want to rescue. The rest would go to the shelter. The only reason he can do this is because our shelters are overfilled with horses and there is no room!

I think your friend is full of crap, still a little thing called "due process" and the 4th and 5th Amendment.

The post is located at NEED TO SELL HER NOW!!QUATER HORSE... I asked how much she really wanted for her and she said no less than $450 and she swears she won't budge. It's ridiculous!

My friend said he can only do it because they don't have enough space for all the horses. We have a licensed non profit rescue at our barn. This is the only way he can bring us the horses with out a problem. Because they would be going to a non profit rescue. :)

So basically, you think it's okay to steal someone elses horses just because you want one particular one and don't want to pay $450 for it? Yeah, that's not underhanded AT ALL.

The horse does need its feet done, but looks to be in good weight. There's no reason for AC to take any of the horses based on that picture.

If you want the horse, buy it. There is absolutely NO justification for you to steal it, and I'd never donate to any rescue whose administrator thought the way you do.

Well maybe I misunderstood the guy but he said they have been called to this address NUMEROUS times and there are always major problems with the animals in question. Right now there are around 10 horses at this property and they are all in bad shape. I bought my horse from them around a month ago. I have spent around $1000 alone on her so far. Chiropractor because her sacrum was dislocated, her feet were $150 to do because they were overgrown and flared horribly, teeth floating etc. I guess I misunderstood my friend but they DO take horses to licensed rescues when they don't have enough space for them. And yes, the do require an adoption fee and application. I am in no way trying to steal any horse. This horses feet are starting with slipper foot. I just want what would be best for the animals. I will just call animal control and report the owner. I offered to pay her for the horse but she would not accept any offer lower than $450. This horses feet should NOT look like this ever! Let alone at 1 1/2 years old period. Her heels are at extremely bad angles. And she can barely walk. Animal control will be going out to this property within the next week. There are injured horses, emaciated horses, and horses with severe hoof problems they are trying to sell for $1,000-$1,500. You can't even get that for a sound horse right now. My horse was 250 underweight when I got her. She has gained around 100 lbs since I got her. They feed half a flake to one flake of cheap hay PER DAY.
