Wow. Just... wow. It is amazing that these horses have been able to grow a hoof worth standing on!

Im glad it got put out of its misery! Although he should have gotten in trouble! I had to shoot one horse once(will never do it again unless I seriously have to), it was crazy and insane and would attack little kids, it nearly killed my grandfather and had him cornered attacking him and broke his leg. I heard him screaming for help :( never buy a horse from teenage boys. They tried to beat it into listening and ruined what could have been a good horse.

Im looking at all sorts of things involving hooves and hoof care and stimulating growth and just everything I can right now I can't find someone to come 2 and a half hours up the mountain to trim my horses hooves so im going to try to become a farrier and go to school for it.

And I was curious and wanted to see how bad hooves can get. Just wanted to see some of the stuff I might be up against if I persue a career as a farrier.

I really should have taken pictures but I had a client buy a neglected donkey, feet had grown into elf slippers, turned a 90 to the outside then grown up so that the inside heel was outside of the leg and pointed up. It's been 9 months and his feet are about 90% corrected.

I have trouble getting someone to come out to my house, well someone that I trust and does the job right. I was looking into trimming or even just rasping in between. But, I am scared to death so I am looking into taking some classes around here.
