Just got a new horse, he's part of a group that was seized, previous owners starved them almost to death. He's got a long road to go, so we're just going to work on straightening up his feet and getting him healthy.
The farrier trimmed him about 2 weeks after he came in, he did what he could. His feet are still pretty bad. Frogs ate up, funky and infected. When I trimmed I found a few pockets of nasty stuff. Next step is a good disinfecting soak and then treat with cream in all of the cracks. He's pigeon toed in the front, which doesn't help either. He was almost bow legged when he came in because he self trims the outsides of his feet only.
Here are pictures of his feet before I trimmed - Otter Feet Before Trim 3-2-14 Photos by Sarahbreas | Photobucket

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have trimmed my own for years but its been a long time since I've worked on a foot this bad.
