i think it's a coffin bone problem

This horse I'm starting to take care of can't be riden. Because this loser bought him and rode him 4-ever and then didn't take good care of him and the lady I work with saw him when she was checking on him (she sold him to the loser) and he was laying down and three hours later he hadn't moved so she bought him back and his feet hurt and he can't be riden and she said there is a chance he will ride again. But he's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sweet and lays his head on my sholder (which is masive) what do you think this is? 8)

Um, has a vet been called? There are sooooo many things it could be that I can't even begin to guess.

Try to find natural hoof care practitioner in your area. Some are just great on such things (although it takes time to heal).

Easy care boots. I bought a pair for my colt when we thought he was foundering (turned out he had a thorn in his hoof :roll: ) so I bought these boots for him, and did a ton of research on them. How far has the coffin bone rotated, has I penetrated the sole yet? You probably already know you need to get him off all grass, and grain. Definitely no alfalfa, brome is okay, but I would use burmuda. Its hard to find, but its your best bet for a full recovery. We do really need pics to see what his hoof looks like. Good luck!

He's off grass and the bone hasn't cut out yet he gets hay and the granddaughter keeps giving him carrots isn't that bad 4 him? The owner doesn't think he'll make it
