Ok , I don't know if I wasn't clear on this but his feet have not been left for months , I haven't ridden him in months. His feet are obviously overdue but only about two weeks, he has very this hoof walls and as soon as his feet get long they splay straight outward causing cracks and a bunch of mess. I DO have the money to get his feet done but my farrier has recently shattered his hip and I am in the process of finding a new farrier. Simon is actually an Appendix (QH/TB) he is from Alotta Gator Bait. I'm obviously not jumping him with his feet this long ..? I did clearly state that I wasn't riding him AT ALL , so how would I jump him ? I know that his feet are long !!! I just wanted to know more about his bone structure and overall conformation. Thank you to everyone commenting without calling me a bad horse owner.

No one called you a bad horse owner, and I am very familiar with Alotta Gator Bait. Even two weeks overdue for a trim....his feet should not look like that. So that tells me that your trimmer is not trimming him correctly. Sorry....not trying to bust yours chops...just giving you straight up facts.

If his feet chip up the way you say and he has very thing walls, you probably need to shoe the fronts even when you don't ride him.

I had Thoroughbreds and QH's and Apendix QH's and those thin walls could be an issue! Hard to build a heel and keep the toe short on some of them and can be really hard without the support of shoes.

I like your horse.
