    If he can be used for education then that is ok by me. I don't have any photos of when he was younger in a conformational stance, but I do feel his posty ness increased with age, and perhaps is exacerbated by the relaxation of his tendons.

    What a sweet looking old guy. He sure had arthritis bad in his hocks.

    I'm sure he had arthritis in general but the worst was his front right knee. By far. I could always pick all his hooves... but that one? It took a lot of convincing and I had to pull it straight out, barely off the ground. The general barn farrier (I could not be there at the time) almost put him on the hard ground to trim his hooves. If I were there I would've killed him. Needless to say he was fired, my new farrier was so kind and patient and he used a sort of "Pedi- Paws" for horses on that hoof that made it way easier for him to lift and still get his trim done!
