The flares in the feet were pre-glue on..that pic is from the first day I saw him and yes, he was foot sore and his feet were very short. The owner had pulled the front shoes (he was always barefoot behind) due to the fact she was away a lot to shows and didn't want to chance the horse pulling shoes in the field. Her barn staff member that looked after the place in her absence could feed, clean and turnout but wasn't real knowledgeable about shoes and such.
The bottom shot with the regular shoes is 6 and a half weeks later.
