Sorry guys I haven't had a chance to reply :(. Anyway, he did have a mild bout of colic a couple of weeks ago, I sure hope he isn't one to colic easy. I don't remember what we thought caused the colic, hmmmm. If he has had laminaetis before, does that mean he's likely to again? I sure hope not :(. Also, I'm sorry if I made if sound like we got his feet trimmed 6 weeks ago, the farrer pulled his shoes 6 weeks ago but he said that it was a pretty resent shoeing job. I think his feet really started to crack and chip though after he got his shoes pulled. He didnt rasp them or anything and the started to chip after that. I hope I can convince my dad to atleast let the farrier do his feet the first couple of ties so he can get them at the right length and everything as well as show my dad how to do it.
