Aww poor horse!! What is wrong with people?? I'm glad you have him now and are taking very good care of him. His hoofs look so much better just after that trim but still very brutal looking.

You Wish you could ride like a Barrel Racer

The poor guy, good for you for saving him from what could have been certain death being in that condition. Subbing to see his progress!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Wow!! His feet are already looking 10x better than they did!!! Poor guy, couldnt have felt good to have been walking on his hooves like that! Look forward to watching, and seeing the progress!!

Kudos to you for getting him, and giving him the care and attention he needs!!

His feet look so much better even after just one trim! Bless his heart- you are amazing for getting him and taking care of him.

Can't wait to see his progress!

No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird, can stir me as hooves of horses have stirred.
Wit beyond measure is man's greatest treasure!

Unhappy 3rd trim update!!!

Well Clyde had his 3rd trim 2 days ago so I'm posting some pics to show his progress! Here we go!

Before the trim, all 4 feet:

The front two, including the worst, the front left, which you can clearly see the crack growing out on now:

The trimmer doing the backs, which are getting some real concavity now!:

Not too much off the fronts, but it's a work in progress:

All 4 after the trim, nice small, recovering footies:)

And the last one just because he's so darn CUTE:

Sorry to say, the day before he got this trim (Monday), he bucked me off and I broke my right arm - both radius and ulna. SO no more horsing around for 4-6 weeks until I've healed. The worst part of it was during the trim everyone and their cousin at the facility had advice for me... it was embarrassing to show up in a cast. This horse has never bucked once since I've gotten him and started working with him - prior to bucking I'd ridden him a few times for a few minutes here and there without an issue (besides him not understanding ques), and right before the accident had been riding him for around 20 minutes beautifully (he now understands my ques after some work with him:). I have no idea what happened, but it's just an accident, and now that I know he can/will buck, I'll just be more cautious once I'm healed :( Big goof.

Wow, what an amazing difference! Jailtime is too good for these people.

Sorry to hear about your arm. Has the vet/farrier okayed him for riding? I would be worried about those cracks.

Vet and farrier have declared him sound to ride:) He was having problems with his bridle so I also just had his teeth done for the first time which helped a LOT. I never saw it coming, he's usually so lazy. Someone suggested he may have gotten stung by a wasp but I couldn't find a lump anywhere...
