    mini feet

    Thank you for your input!!! I have had such a problem finding a farrier who will trim a mini. Oh Cash is coming up on 4m july 18. My first concern was that he would founder quickly like the broudmares he was with. This lady was just a crazy "breeder". I wish that I could have taken all the animals to better homes. So rasp his hooves every week until his heel is shorter? I completely understood whay you said by looking at Tiny's hoof. Thank you.

    Having problems finding a farrier that will do the minis I owned 9 miniature horses and never had issues finding someone to come out. They actually didn't mind. Took him a quarter of the time to do them and he still charged the same (rip off to me) but he always did them.

    And yes minis are a little more difficult to handle with feeding. It doesn't take much for them to founder or get near that stage. I would recommend you getting a miniature horse grazing muzzle. They hate them but they work great. Just make sure that none of the other minis take it off his/her buddy ;) the mare that had to carry it, had another mini take it off for her.

    Northernmama, I think it was the other thread, same topic, same OP, but you asked if the ring could be from the sweet feed.... Absolutely! Since the hoof was just trimmed it alters what we see a little and photos are never as good as in person evals, but I just glanced and thought it looked like a foal hoof. But you are right, it could be a laminitic ring.
