Her feet area large concern, as stated. A horse with that much flare might need the support of shoes. She is very drafty.. long and weak through the coupling, lots of bone, sickle hocked behind, steep croup. She is a bit back at the knee and has a steep shoulder. Neck sets on OK and she has nice withers that carry into her back. Not a bad horse.. but without addressing those feet there will be NO horse.

Of particular concern is the from behind view standing on a level slap. Look at her left hind foot and see the TWIST?

No foot no horse.. and this horse needs a really good farrier coming about every 3-4 weeks to get this mess fixed.

I'm not seeing serious faults. She's a gangly "teen-ager" right now and unfortunately it's going to be quite a wait to see how she fills out around 5.

Where in Ca. Are you? You wouldn't be near the Central Valley would ya. I could get you a list of farriers for this area if that is the case. We have an awesome farrier but I am not sure if he has alot of experiance with drafts, but I could always ask.

Twist? I see my horse kept wiggling and moving. I tried to get her to place that foot roughly where the other was. That foot is result of my lift and place, plus her original wiggling.

Again, farrier coming out next week. We are in Inland Empire. Ill call the farrier who was originally supposed to come out ( car overheated). I guess his boss is a vet who has been a farrier forever? Ill get the details on that and see if he knows drafts.

ETA: I think the pictures aren4 helping. If I have time, Ill get hubby to help before school today, if not tomorrow, and get better shots of her rear and back legs.

Update: Farrier coming Tuesday afternoon. Hubby says he mentioned the issue and farrier didnt seem too concerned. We will show pix of Kieras feet from the PA farrier and see if he can work towards that. We will see what happens Tuesday.

You can find draft farriers in Kern county. Don't now for sure where you are located.
The flare does need fixed.
Being a draft mix, she will change shape in another month or so, give her plenty of hay. They go through some really funky growth stages. My mixes were called ugly mustangs at age 2.
Lol.

Im off Ramona Expressway in the Perris area. If I can't find a farrier who will do a good job on her, I may see if theres one in SD county. One I called today said he is familiar with drafts but he is booked solid for the next 3 weeks. I will see how Tuesdays trim comes out after we show him the pix, and decide from there.

As for hay, a week or so ago I could no longer see OR FEEL her ribs. We are still experimenting.
