    Funny, before I read your post I was thinking the same thing!

    Is he on any kind of mineral? I'd get him on something like GroStrong or something of the like. High in copper low in iron, balanced zinc/calcium ratio. The others may have other stuff to look for in mineral as well.

    Wow, I don't have enough knowledge of this kind of thing to offer any help, but I am sending cyber hugs to you and your pony! Hope he gets some of those problems cleared up in the next couple months. :)

    I know that many of you probably think it was stupid of me to buy this horse with all of his issues, but I believe that I can fix him.

    We are leaving our barn last day of June, Simon is not moving 100% but I trot him in hand every day and he's looking a little better all the time.

    I'm going to worm him probably tomorrow or Wednesday for NTW just in case as that may be what he has and it wouldn't hurt to try, right?

    Also, I just wanted to thank everyone for the support, I really need all the help I can get, no support at home, barn, financially takes a toll!

    He's not on any mineral but I really want to put him on a supplement. Any suggestions for something to help with his issues? Mostly worried about his feet right now.

    I read up on MSM and people were saying that it makes their horses more high-energy which is NOT what I'm looking for with Simon!

    If you put on him on a senior feed it should help. You need to be careful with vitamins and minerals , it dependes where you live, and what the hay /feed is like. Try googling 'Understanding Vitamins and minerals for horses " . You may get some decent articles. Biotin supplement for his hooves. It takes A Year for a hoof to grow out. His hooves should improve, it will just be time consuming. As he gains weight his overall health etc will be improving. I would be concerned with the roaring, and have him Vet checked on that to see if it does affect his breathing . Good luck .

    Ok , can I wait until he gets settled at the new barn before calling a vet? I want to see how the new atmosphere and feed, turnout etc is helping him instead of making two vet appointments (twice as expensive *yikes*)

    Can't really see much from those pictures, however those huge missing chunks do kind of look grown in a bit?
