    Do yourself a favor and run. Beautiful horse but unless you would just like a horse 'to look at' then if advise against getting him. Just curious, how much are they asking??

    Foal
    The pictures from when he was younger showed no signs of any leg problems. It is hard to tell what a foal will look like until they are older but you can always get an idea.

    I'd buy the "bad farrier" story only AFTER a thorough vetting when the vet is the one telling you that is the problem.

    After seeing these pictures I'm betting he won't stay sound long as a riding horse. I can tell you that rigt now...

    Foal
    He has been checked by the vet and I'm waiting for the report. I'm not for sure buying him.

    yes - and the idea that is being gotten via the photos you have posted in this thread is that this horse is destined to a life of soundness issues. You asked for input, you are getting it - that input can only be given on what you have provided which is photos of a horse showing serious club foot issues. It seems you are rather keen on this little guy and want him to be THE horse for you.......

    Sure, foals change a lot as they grow, but there are some things that don't change. Granted, I am just judging from 2 pictures so I could be wrong....but I really don't think I am. There are signs that a trained eye can see on things like that that will give clues to whether it might be something long-term or something new. Just looking at those pictures, I'm not inclined to believe the "bad farrier" story the owners told you. Those feet have been growing that way for a while.

    For your own sake, please get a very thorough vet check before you go any further in this purchase. He is a cute colt, but I would hate for you to get him home and end up heartbroken when he ends up being capable of nothing more than being a very loudly colored, and expensive, pasture pet.

    Um... I said I might get him. Yes I love him but I also have enough sense to say no. I haven't seen him yet because he is out of state. I'm going there soon to see him in person before making a final decision. I'm taking all precautions. He only showed this problem after his last farrier visit who supposedly was a different farrier then usual. I've seen a lot of bad farrier jobs. I'm being careful.

    I am going to have a complete vet check done before he leaves the state. I'm also making the seller sign a contract.
