As I said, I have only owned her a few days, and I begged the man who had her to sell her to me because I felt so very sorry for her. She obviously should not have been bred for reasons far beyond that of just her conformation, and I do not think anyone rescues a horse to later on down the road proceed to bred them, so there is no worries in that regard. With all of that said, I am very hopeful that the foal will be healthy and be a great addition for us since the little thing will arrive one way or another now - lol.
The man who owned her, who, for all of his neglect, seems rather honest, said that he had known her former owner since she had owned Teka, and that this foot has always, since she was a foal, been this way when I talked to him about it, with me thinking at first it was due to the overgrown hoof. We are several hours from the Equine Vet, and she is close to having the foal, so I am not intending to make the trip until sometime after that occurs. I am just curious in the meantime until I can have her seen.
Thankfully it does not seem to bother her in the least for now.
I had wondered about DSLD, but if what he says is true and it has been this way since she was a foal, from what I've read, that would mean it wasn't DSLD, right?
