    not my horse, but im concerned!

    Ok, there is this horse at my stables named Necon, and all his hooves are cracked, FAR. Both front hooves are cracked pretty much all the way through. The right back hoof is cracked and there is a chunk of the hoof missing. And the left back hoof is no that bad but still! He is a pinto/percheron, around 17hh. The lady who owns him(lisa) used to ride him but she has not been out to see him or anything so, in the summer when she tried to ride him he would buck rear, etc. so since that she has not been out to care for him or at least come see him. Like I said up there his hooves are in very bad condision. I love and care about ALL the horses at my stable, and I hate to see Necon this misrable. I really don't know what to do. I am NOT just going to sit there and do nothin bout' it, even though he is not my horse. I really need advice, what should I do????

    My advice is to do nothing, Not your horse.

    Well, she does not come out to care for him, and I am not going to let him die!

    Maybe call up his owner and ask to get him looked at by a farrier. At that point there's really nothing else you can do.

    Take to the stable owner and have them call the owner. A horse in poor shape also looks bad for business.

    Talk to the owner

    Are you the BO? Is there a care agreement in place? Are the boarding bills being paid? Check out the legalities first. Oftentimes, a BO can intervene legally and back-charge the owner for needed care. If bills aren't being paid, a lien can be put on the horse and ownership can be taken.

    I would stay out of it. If you are unsure of the circumstances surrounding the horse, then just leave it to your barn owner. It is good that you are concerned, however this is your barn owners job to take care of issues such as these, not yours. I also would not worry about him dying either, cracked feet are no good, but I don't think they are going to kill him anytime real soon.
