I agree with everyone else. These hooves really aren't that bad. Just need a couple of good trims and a little patience. My horse's looked pretty bad when we got her back in March and just had her trimmed today. I attached a few pics so you can see what is possible....
Still have a couple more trims but you can get the picture. This is only one hoof but they all had their problems.
[QUOTE=smrobs;1155047]I believe that the one hoof with the smaller frog is actually a back foot, the 2 with the nice, wide frogs are on the front feet./QUOTE]
Yeah, I really almost positive also that its a back foot too. You can see they are more pointed in the top veiw pics. It really doesnt look like its been trimmed two weeks ago. I had to reschedule my farrier appt for next week (making it going on 8 weeks, and they really arent as long as that yet. Id say that's around 13 weeks since a trim.). But its not bad! Like everyone said a good farrier will have him all evened out and fixed up in probably one visit
BailyJo, wow! Farrier did great work!
Here a before and after of a mini pony family rescued. She had only one trim a year before we got her,but she's still sound! But she still need a couple more trims before her hoof is perfect...:
