Anyone catch the Curly yet?
https://www.blm.gov/adoptahorse/hors...mygalleryview=

She's club footed, but by gosh has she got some curls! And a bid, the lucky girl will at least have a home, and hopefully one where she isn't used as a broodmare for her curls (I've been stalking craigslist ponies lately and was surprised at how many people breed Mustang mares, most without the best conformation or any training, just cheap baby-producers)

Is a club foot something that is genetically inherited?

It can be a bit of both. Sometimes horses are born with them and sometimes they can develop after extended periods of time without hoof care if the horse isn't in a position to wear the excess hoof off.

Both she and the roan gelding that have clubbed feet were born in the same holding facility....so it could be either one.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Because there are thousands born in holding facilities every year and the BLM has very few people qualified to do any real training with the horses. Most of their budget is spent on feeding the horses and there aren't many people who volunteer to go out there and train them. They do have the training facility at Canon City where the horses are trained by inmates, but they normally only do horses that are riding age.

It stays in the holding facility. I think, after it's a 3 time loser (up for adoption 3 times with no bids) then it goes to a certain pen in the facility where they keep the "lifers".

Of course, folks can walk through the facility and adopt those horses if they choose, but they aren't actively advertised as up for adoption. Most of those horses are older, some have serious soundness or conformational issues, and some just aren't "pretty" enough for someone to want them.
