Well when he foundered when he was 3 he was just turned out to pasture. No I didn't get him until he was about 8-9 years old, so if he had any rotation I had no idea of it at the time (i was only 12). My grandfather would trim his feet as he felt necessary, which meant usually still leaving his toe kind of long. Last July, so its been a year, but he does a good job of keeping his feet well trimmed himself.
If I separate him he will find some way to escape, I don't know how he does it, but he's one of those houdini horses, and when separated he gets a bit aggressive.
I don't totally know his diagnosis as to why he is lame yet, my vet might not be able to come out until tomorrow or wednesday. She believes its an abscess causing the problem.
