Oh, oops! I should have read Maura's post. I'll have to look more closely at my boys fronts.

There will be dots down the horses legs.

This one is still new and the hair hasn't grown back yet

It totally depends on WHY the horse was fired. If it was a major unsoundness, it is likely to come back with hard riding. If it was minor and given time to completely heal, it is not a big deal -- just a 'blemish'.

The only way to find out would be to track him to his original owner which would be difficult to do without his papers.

A PPE would help, but a comprehensive one will cost a lot and have to include x-rays. And even with one, the history is a lot more important, at least for me.

We have had Saddlebreds and Thoroughbreds that were pinfired. They stayed sound, and were shown or ridden daily.
