    Front:)


    <<< whats that tendon(?) out soo much for???






    BACK...










    okay:) and just for some information.. He left his back feet kinda square.. because Sunny naturally does that because he has weird hocks as my vet says.. He also said that I should file down his back feet on the inside once they start getting bad.. to help Sunny stay sound.. because he most likely wont be sound all his life because of how bow-legged he is. And his hock issues( that I just found out about.).. He said that putting shoes on his back feet will also help stabilize his hocks and prevent him from "rolling' his legs or something.. Ill probably start a different thread going into detail of what he told me though;) about his legs..

    How did the feet get so nasty?
    It looks like a 100% improvement. They appear kind of bullnosed but that may be from having underrun heels for so long.

    I'd like to see them with the next trim!

    Hi, pics need to be better angles for more accurate idea. Did the vet suggest X-rays for fronts? Does he suspect a high degree of rotation as they appear? Is the toe sole as low/flat as it appears? What's the horses story? New acquisition for you? Be interested to see them after the next trim or few.

    A doctor I know has had great success with hyaleuronic(sp?) acid for her horses hocks, which is given to humans too.

    Thanks:). My dad bought this horse for me as a 3 year old.. he is 6 now.. His feet got pretty bad.. because I wasn't riding.. they were out on pasture.. and we just finally got them trimmed.. ( I told them for a while they needed to be- but you know parents)

    My vet actually said his front feet(legs) and all look to be in pretty good shape:)

    Loosie, can you explain what makes you suspect a rotation? Am I missing something?
